Deepa Bhatia is a Bollywood film editor, producer and director based in Mumbai. She is known for editing commercially successful films like Tare Zameen Par, My Name is Khan, Rock On, Kai Po Che, Student of the Year and Raees. She has recently edited films like Kedarnath, Drive and the much talked about biopic on Sachin Tendulkar. Deepa believes that editing is making something the best it can be. In her own words, "A movie is written thrice. Once, when it is written, the second, when it is directed, and the third, when it is edited. It is unfortunate that editors don't get their due. It frustrates me when people think cutting is editing." In 2010, UTV World Movies chose her as the personality of the month to pick four movies of her choice from the channel's collection. Interestingly, the movies she picked were Machuca, Cousin Cousine, Twin Sisters and 8 Women.
