Prashant is a post-graduate in Socio-Cultural Anthropology. He worked as a freelance photographer for a number of distinguished newspapers & magazines in India. His assignments covered features such as Art and Culture, investigation, fiction, new products, fashion shows, astronomy, music & dance festivals, adventure, feature stories, movers and shakers, eye-opener and counter moves.

A research assignment for a period film triggered his latent interest in filmmaking. Subsequently, he worked on more projects of the kind.

He is passionate about making documentaries that would voice elements of social cultural realities.

The Bioscopewallah, Prashant's debut independent documentary, was shot entirely in natural and available light, sans crew.
