With over 20 years of industry experience, he started as an assistant commercial producer on a London wide multi language radio ‘Spectrum International’. Within a year he was picked up by ‘TV Asia’ to look after two of their local and most popular TV shows, ‘Bollywood Top 10’ & ‘TVA & You’ featuring their star presenter Asif Ghazali. This is where his route to becoming one of the most prolific creative Brit Asian began.

Since he has directed some of the top film & Television personalities including Bollywood Supr star Shahrukh Khan (Don), Hollywood actor Art Malik (True Lies), British Actress Nina Wadia(Goodness Gracious Me) British actor John Altman(Eastenders) and many more.

He has a unique approach to training his actors. He does not believe in Method Acting and instead he believes that evoking emotions for an actors should simply come from what our brain is naturally trained to do, ‘Emotions equals words and words equals emotion’.

He likes Meisner Philosophy and thinks that it is a better route to great acting.
