1.       Black Birthday: Producer Brij Sadanah shoots dead his family; then kills himself

Kamal Sadanah

It was October 21, 1990. It was producer Kamal Sadanah's 20th birthday party and he was celebrating it at his Bandra bungalow with close friends. At half past midnight, his father, producer Brij Sadanah, brought out a Smith & Wesson and shot dead his wife in the living room. Kamal Sadanah and friends came running out of his room. Then Brij Sadanah aimed the gun at his daughter and shot her too. A third bullet ripped past Kamal Sadanah's neck and the fourth he literally caught in the palm of his hand.

At the turn of the millennium he found love and started a family. He also tore down his bungalow and paved the way for a high-rise. "Dad always had a Smith&Wesson, but he also had a troublesome habit with it. Once during an argument with my mother, he had shot a round, albeit in the air. My mother, since she was close to Nargis, used her political clout to get the gun confiscated. However, at the peak of the Khalistan crisis, my father citing extortion threats from terrorists, go the gun back," said Kamal Sadanah in an interview to Mumbai Mirror when recounting the horror. It was an oversight that cost the police and the Sadanahs dearly. For on October 21, Mrs and Mrs Sadanah had a bitter fight and…
