Gurinder Chadha

Film Director / Screenwriter / Film Producer | * 01/10/1960 (60) | Nairobi, Kenya
Gurinder Chadha, (born 10 January 1960) is an English film director of Indian origin. Most of her films explore the lives of Indians living in England.

She is best known for the hit films Bhaji on the Beach (1993), Bend It Like Beckham (2002), Bride and Prejudice (2004), Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging (2008), It's a Wonderful Afterlife (2010) and Viceroy's House (2017).
