Started working with Stardust, Mumbai in his early twenties, but was thrown out after three months, as he was not good at journalism. Joined a trade guide before he met Mukul Anand. It was then that he decided to enroll for a filmmaking course instead of becoming Mukul's assistant. Won a National Award in 1987 for his diploma film The Eight Column Affair. Is recognised for the good work for his short film on Raman Raghav, a serial killer who terrified Mumbai in the 1960s.
