Years ago he made “Paanch”, a tale about 5 people rock band. The film never got released because no distributor was ready to touch this dark film. Then later he made “Black Friday”, a movie about the 93 Mumbai serial Bomb blast. It was a dramatic representation of the planning of the bomb blasts with real names and real situation shown on film. Just before the release, the court ordered to stop the release as the trial was still going on. The film did not release.
His writing credits include “Kaun” and “Satya”.
