Veteran filmmaker O P Dutta passes away
Veteran Bollywood writer-filmmaker O P Dutta died in Mumbai following a bout of pneumonia at the Kokilaben Hospital in suburban Andheri. The end came last night around 9.30 pm.

O P Dutta was admitted to the hospital on February 7 and he succumbed to complications of pneumonia last night.

The filmmaker, who was in his late 80s, began his career as a director with 'Pyaar Ki Jeet' in 1948. He followed it up with films like 'Surajmukhi' (1950), 'Ek Nazar' (1951), 'Malkin' (1953), 'Aangan' (1959) and others.

Dutta later turned writer for his son J P Dutta with films like 'Ghulami' (1985), 'Hathyar' (1989), 'Border' (1997), 'Refugee' (2000), 'LOC Kargil' (2003). His last film as a writer was the remake of 'Umrao Jaan' in 2006.

Actor Abhishek Bachchan, who worked with him in 'Umrao Jaan', expressed grief over his demise.

“As soon as I get off the stage, I receive the terrible news of the passing of Mr O P Dutta. Father to J P Dutta. The director who launched me.. O P ji was J P saab's writer and dialogue writer. He penned my very first words that I ever said on screen. Such a loving man,” Abhishek wrote on Twitter.

“Full of zest, positivity and compassion. Had a great sense of humor and so rich in experience. He taught me one of my greatest lessons in life..."jab bura apni burayi na chode, phir achcha apni achchayi kyun chode?" (if the bad does not stop being bad, then why... should the good stop being good),” he said.
