Studied Advertising from the Raheja School of Arts, Mumbai. Then worked for a decade in Advertising as an art director before moving to Australia where I studied at the Sydney Film School. Have also directed ad films for the Indian Army, Cadbury and campaigns such as Stop Child Abuse and Save Energy. Moved to Indonesia for a while, where I worked as a producer for advertising films.
Shree Devi Phataka is his debut film as a writer/director.
Its a great honour that a simple marathi film - 'Shree Devi Phataka' is a official selection for a big Festival like Mami. This goes to show that Marathi films (though low on budget) are more creative and the audiences are open to new Ideas.
