Masterji was a super hit released in the summer of 1985. The Bollywood romantic comedy film, directed by K. Raghavendra Rao, released on 30 August, 1985. The film stars Rajesh Khanna in the title role as Masterji and Sridevi as his heroine.
A remake of 1984 Tamil film Mundhanai Mudichu, directed by K. Bhagyaraj, where Bhagyaraj also played the lead male role. After the Tamil version, K. Bhagyaraj decided to remake it in Hindi but handed over directorship to Kovelamudi Raghavendra Rao. K. Bhagyaraj wrote the story and screenplay for Masterji.
The controversial film was certified as 'A' (as in Adult) for its innuendos and suggestive nature - but by today's standards, the film was tame beyond belief.
