My journey has been nothing less than a dream for me. I started with very basic shoots in my career and today I shoot for some of the best brands and magazines. This industry has always been very welcoming for me. My experience has been great throughout. The only key to succeed in this artistic filed is to work hard and to learn something new everyday.

My first music video as a director was “Mere Mehboob” which was released by Saregama. The video gained a lot of popularity and then I decided to direct and produce more music videos. I have shot more than ten videos since then and even own a music label now.
