Director and short story writer, Rajinder Singh Bedi was the brain behind the renowned story Ek Chader Maili Si - set in rural Punjab. He authored the work and scripted the film (1986). Previously, he had written dialogues for Minerva Movietone's Mirza Ghalib (1954), Bimal Roy's Devdas (1955) and Madhumati (1958), Hrishikesh Mukherjee's Anuradha (1960) and Anupama (1966). Bedi believed in the writer's craftsmanship rather than mere creativity. His language was of the people - khari boli - rather than a high-flown style. The down-to-earth approach set him apart, whether in the earthiness of Ek Chader Maili Si or the acute sensitivity of Anuradha and Anupama.
