Ghai’s tribute to Ashok Mehta

Filmmaker Subhash Ghai is set to organise a day-long tribute here in honour of late cinematographer Ashok Mehta, who passed away recently.

It will be held on 27 August at his media and film institute Whistling Woods International, said a press statement.

There will be exhibitions and seminars on Mehta’s works. His directorial debut Moksh will also be screened in the presence of its lead actors Arjun Rampal and Manisha Koirala.

Mehta, who breathed his last 15 August following advanced lung cancer, was among one of India’s best known cinematographers. He had shot films like Shekhar Kapur’s Bandit Queen, Shyam Benegal’s Mandi and Trikaal, Aparna Sen’s 36 Chowringhee Lane and Paroma, Shashi Kapoor’s Utsav and MF Hussain’s Gaja Gamini.

Ghai and Mehta had worked together on films like Ram Lakhan [1989], Khal Nayak [1993] and Kisna [2005].

Mehta died on 15 August. He was 65.
