His folks once had a place with Karwar, Karnataka yet later got migrated to Bhowanipore, West Bengal.

He had changed his name from Vasanth Kumar Shivashankar Padukone to Guru Dutt on account of a youth mishap. Another expressed reason could be his childhood in Bengal, which allured him to do as such.

At 16 years old, he was especially interested by moving and joined the move foundation of unbelievable artist and choreographer, Pandit Uday Shankar, who was the senior sibling of the Sitar maestro, Pandit Ravi Shankar.

In 1943, looking for an occupation, he moved to Kolkata, where he began filling in as a Telephone administrator at Lever Brothers manufacturing plant. In the wake of working there for a while, he thought that it was languid and left the activity.

In 1944, his Uncle carried him to Pune to get an appropriate line of work for him. Before long, he got him a line of work under a three-year contract with Prabhat Film Company as an associate chief.

The two of them have pursued the understanding genuinely by cooperating in different movies like C.I.D, Baazi, and some more.

After the film ‘Aar Paar’, Guru Dutt had found V.K. Murthy (cinematographer), and Abrar Alvi (author chief), with whom he worked until his last film.

The splendid gathering of experts, known as ‘The Guru Dutt Team,’ has made the insurgency in Indian Cinema through its work. The group has made a portion of the uncommon imaginative movies, for example, Pyaasa, Kagaz Ke Phool,  Chaudhvin Ka Chand, and some more.

It is said that once the unit of 21st Century Fox had come to India to go for a film in cinemascope and left their focal point here. Master Dutt saw the new sort of focal points and took couple of shots for the film ‘Kagaz Ke Phool.’ The shots were good to the point that he chose to shoot the whole film with those focal points, and with this, it turned into the first cinemascope film of India.

In 1951, he met Geeta Roy, an incredible playback vocalist of her time, during the chronicle of the melody ‘Tadbeer Se Bigadi hui Taqdeer Banaa Le,’ and before long began to look all starry eyed at her.

His Sister, Lalita Lajmi, once referenced that I used to go about as a transport between two of them, and used to convey their letters from one’s place to another’s. I was cheerful after, the two of them have chosen to get hitched in the year 1953.

The film then re-discharged in India and got an astounding reaction. Indeed, even until Today, this film is considered to have the faction following and is taken as a source of perspective at numerous Universities; understudies ponder this film to find out about film-production.

His motion pictures, specifically, Pyaasa, Kaagaz Ke Phool, Sahib Bibi Aur Ghulam and Chaudhvin Ka Chand incorporates a portion of the hit melodies of that period, for example, ‘Chaudhvin Ka Chand Ho’, ‘Jane Woh Kaise Log The’, ‘Yeh Duniya Agar Mil Bhi Jaye To’, ‘Waqt Ne Kiya Kya Haseen Sitam’, and some more, which were generally made by the noticeable author, S.D. Burman, and composed by the striking essayist Sahir Ludhianvi.
