I graduated in English Literature and went on to do my Masters in Mass Communication from Jamia Milia. At first, I started out doing freelance documentaries for Doordarshan. I would write them, direct them, voice them, shoot them, and edit them all by myself and make some money. After a few years, my business partner and I began shooting classified videos for small shops and added them to the monthly Newstrack tapes. In 1993 satellite television came to India and we pitched 2 pilot shows to BBC and Star Plus which got selected and ran for many years on these channels.
