Mansoor Khan on “Third Curve”

If you were born in India in late 70’s or early 80’s and if you were a movie buff, you would remember two cult films – Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak (1988) and Jo Jeeta Wahi Sikander (1992). Both films were directed by Aamir Khan’s cousin and veteran film maker Nasir Hussain’s son – Mansoor Khan.

Mansoor Khan is not a usual film-maker even though he belongs to the illustrious film family – His father Nasir Husain produced so many superhit films; and his cousin Aamir Khan went on to rule film industry for 25 years!

Though Mansoor Khan directed 4 films – in addition to QSQT and JJWS, he directed Akele Hum Akele Tum (1995) and Josh (2000) and co-produced Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na (2008) – he vanished from the film industry after 2000 and settled in Coonoor, Tamil Nadu focusing on farming.

He is an IITan and also studied at Cornell and MIT before entering film industry. Mansor Khan wrote a book ‘The Third Curve’ in Oct 2013 which talks about world economy. He talks about unsustainable cities and false understanding of money by society in his book.

Here is an excellent talk by Mansoor Khan on “Third Curve”
