  1. For the 1982 Asian Games held in New Delhi, he was a part of the selection camp as a swimmer. However, he was not selected in the final round.
  2. He started his career by selling vacuum cleaners for Eureka Forbes.
  3. Mehra founded Flicks Motion Picture Company Private Limited in 1986 and started his career as an advertisement filmmaker.
  4. As a director, he made his theatrical film debut with the 2001 Hindi-language supernatural action-thriller film Aks, starring Amitabh Bachchan, Raveena Tandon, and Manoj Bajpayee. Despite being a box office flop, it won 3 awards at the 47th Filmfare Awards.
  5. He directed the 2006 Hindi-language drama film Rang De Basanti, which follows a British film student traveling to India to document the story of 5 freedom fighters of the Indian revolutionary movement. The film became the country’s highest-grossing film in its opening weekend as well as held the highest opening-day collections for a Bollywood film.
  6. Rang De Basanti became India’s official entry to the 79th Academy Awards for “Best Foreign Language Film” as well as got nominated for a BAFTA Award for “Best Film Not in the English Language”.

  7. Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra has been very critical of India’s education system and once said, “We’d started work on “96.7”, till I realized it had become redundant, and I should work on a subject called 100%. It was about the education system. Perhaps I’ll make it once I understand the whole system… perhaps my views are very lopsided right now. But the seeds have been sown,” further adding, “Imagine if Shakespeare goes to DU (Delhi University) and he’s told, ‘We can’t take you based on stories you’ve written as your marksheet isn’t that cool.’ Or if a Leonardo, or Rabindranath Tagore goes there, and writes something called “Gitanjali” and they tell him, ‘Mr Tagore, it’s nice to write things such as ‘Where the head is held high’, but where is your marksheet?”
