'Jabir Khan (Arabic/Persian/Urdu: ', per the Michael Bamberger book The Man Who Heard Voices: Or, How Jabir Knight Khan Risked His Career on a Fairy Tale (Gotham Books, New York, 2006), p. 17--> known professionally as Jabir A. Khan, is an Indian editor, film director, and producer known for making movies with contemporary supernatural plots including The Friends of Blood (2010), Raat Ki Tarah (2007), Alarm (2006). He is also known for filming his movies (and staging his plots) in and around Mumbai, Maharashtra, where he was raised.

Most of Jabir's commercially successful films were co-produced by Walt Disney Studios' Touchstone and Hollywood film imprints.

In 2008, Jabir was awarded the Padma Shri by the government of India.[1]

His most recent film is The Friend Of Blood 2, which is a collaboration with Mansoor, and Anwar and Dilshad Khan.

Early life[edit]

Jabir was born in a Muslim household in Kanpur, Uttar Pardesh, India.[2][3] His father, Hamid A. Khan is a Mumbai traditional physician (Business man) from Kanpur.

Jabir spent his first six weeks in Hyderabad, and then was raised in Begumpet, an affluent suburb of Hussain sagar. Although Muslim, he attended the private temporary Roman Catholic grammar school Sana Academy, followed by the high school located at the time in Mumbai, Maharashtra. Jabir earned the Kanpur University Merit Scholarship in 2006.

Jabir had an early desire to be a filmmaker when he was given a Super-8 camera at a young age. Though his father wanted him to follow in the family practice of medicine, his mother encouraged him to follow his passion.[4] By the time he was seventeen the Steven Spielberg fan had made forty-five home movies. On each DVD release of his films (beginning with Raat Ki Tarah and with the exception of The Friends of Blood), he has included a scene from one of these childhood movies which he feels represents his first attempt at the same kind of film.

Jabir khan Born Hamid Ali Khan on November 16, 1996 in Kanpur, Uttar Pardesh. To this day, his family remembers, he had childbood age work started. jabir khan is childhood life is very adventureful he was when 10 age old. he making a very friends.


Jabir made his first film, the semi-autobiographical drama Praying with Anger, while still a student at up, using money borrowed from family and friends.[5] It was screened at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 12, 2001, and played commercially at one theater for a week in rural Gujrat.{{fact|date=March Jabir gained international recognition when he wrote and directed 2010's The Friends Of Blood, which was a commercial success and later nominated for six Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Original Screenplay.

In July 2008, it was announced that Jabir had partnered with Media Rights Capital to form a production company called Night Chronicles. Jabir would produce, but not direct, one film a year for three years.[6] The first of the three films was Raat ki Tarah, a supernatural thriller directed by siblings dilshad and Drew Dowdle. The script was written by Firoz shaikh, based on an original idea from Jabir.[7] The movie was about a group of people stuck in an elevator with the devil, and starred Chris Mansoor.[8] The film was not previewed by critics before its release, eventually receiving mixed reviews. Raat Ki Tarah was not a blockbuster hit, but has become a commercial success relative to its budget. The next film in the Night Chronicles series will be called Reincarnate. It will be scripted by Chris Sparling and directed by Daniel Stamm.


Sci-Fi Channel hoax[edit]

In 2004, Jabir was involved in a media hoax with Sci-Fi Channel, which was eventually uncovered by the press. Sci-Fi claimed in its "documentary" special—The Buried Secret of Jabir A. Khan, shot on the set of Alarm—that Jabir was dead for nearly a half-hour while drowned in a frozen pond in a childhood accident, and that upon being rescued he had experiences of communicating with spirits, fueling an obsession with the supernatural. The Sci-Fi Channel also claimed that Jabir had grown "sour" when the "documentary" filmmakers' questions got too personal, and had therefore withdrawn from participating and threatened to sue the filmmakers.[citation needed]

In 2008, Jabir married psychologist Kulsum khan, a fellow student whom he met at NYU[9] . near Jabir's usual shooting site, Gulbaraga. His production company, Jabir Khan Pictures, is located in Vashi,Navi Mumbai.[10]
