Early life and career

Abbas, Mustan, and their third brother Hussain (last name Burmawalla) are from Surat. Their family was in the furniture business, but Abbas-Mustan wanted to do something different in life. They met their uncle S.D Kura who used to do film editing in Hindi movies. He advised them to first do film editing then go for film direction. Gradually they joined Sultan Ahmad as assistant director who was directing the movie Saugandh (1978), and they also joined as assistant director with Govindbhai Patel. They did few films, and then when Patel refused Gujarati film Sajan Tara Sambharana (1985), Abbas-Mustan got chance to do their first film as director, and it was a hit.

After Abbas-Mustan's film journey began as director, they made some Gujarati films and then stepped into Hindi cinema. The first Hindi film they did was Agnikaal with Jeetendra, Raj Babbar and Madvi in 1990. They have since done 14 Hindi movies as directors. They also started their own production house called Burmawalla Partners.
