He worked as an assistant director to Pankaj Parashar until 1994 before branching out as an independent director for television for Zee TV.

Sea Hawks was the number one show for thirty-five weeks across all networks. 72 episodes later, he turned to directing music videos.

In 2000, he left work on music videos to start his first feature film Tum Bin. In July 2001, both Tum Bin and Aks were released on the same day. Tum Bin beat Aks in box office receipts.

His third film, the multi-starrer Dus, had the biggest opening weekend for the year 2005. This was followed by Tathastu (2006) and Cash (2007). Ra.One a Highest Budget of 1.8 billion (US$27 million) movie, released on diwali of 2011, was considered a much awaited film of 2011.
