Abbas-Mustan is a Bollywood director duo who made many successful movies in thriller & action genres in the last 2 decades in Bollywood. They are actual brothers and they have a third brother called Hussain. All three have the surname Burmawalla. Bobby Deol, Akshay Kumar & Akshay Khanna have been regulars in their films. Their biggest hits include Khiladi (1992), Baazigar (1993), Soldier (1998), Aitraaz (2004), Race (2008) & Race 2 (2013). It is observed that they have copied the plot of several Hollywood movies in their movies. Comedian Johny Lever had been the most repeated actor in their films as he acted in almost all of their earlier films. They look like twins and we always sport them in white shirt and white pants. They are known as extremely soft spoken directors notwithstanding the genres in which they make movies.
They were born in Surat, Gujarat and the family was in to furniture business. However, Abbas Mustan wanted to be film makers. They approached their uncle S.D. Kura who was an editor in Hindi films at that time. He advises them to take up editing before they venture in to direction. So they started working as editors soon after this. Later they became assistant directors to Sultan Ahmad. They also assisted the director Govindbhai Patel. Finally they became independent directors with the Gujarati film Sajan Tara Sambharana (1985) when the director backed out at the last minute. They went on to do few more Gujarati movies before they finally made a Hindi movie in 1990. Agnikaal was their first Hindi movie and it starred Jeetendra, Raj Babbar and Madvi.
They have so far made 17 Bollywood movies and most of them have been box office hits. Abbas Mastan worked with Shahrukh Khan with Baazigar (1993) & Baadshah (1999). Baazigar was one of the career defining movies for Shahrukh Khan and it’s one of his biggest hits. His performance also was acclaimed. They worked with Salman Khan in the romantic drama Chori Chori Chupke Chupke (2001). The movie was a hit at the box office. They also directed Akshay Kumar in Khiladi (1992), which later on became his most successful series – Akshay Kumar acted in 7 movies in the Khiladi series so far.
Race 2 (sequel to the 2008 hit film Race) was their latest movie and it was a huge box office winner.
They own a production house named Burmawalla Partners.
