Dibakar Banerjee is one of the most reputed filmmakers in the industry at the moment. Through his filmography, it is very evident that the director never shies away from experimenting. He can deliver fun, feel good films like Oye Lucky Lucky Oye and Khosla Ka Ghosla but also treat the audience with intense stories like Shanghai and Detective Byomkesh Bakshi. The director collaborated with a team comprising of Karan Johar, Zoya Akhtar and Anurag Kashyap for the Netflix original Lust Stories. While the film was pretty well received in India, it also earned a nomination at the International Emmys.
