Indra is director and writer, who teaches directing at Met Film School in London. As a student at Goldsmith's College, London, his own graduation film Shona May won awards in the Fuji Film Scholarship Competition and David Puttnam selected it to screen on Thames Television’s First Run, showcasing the finest young film making talent in Britain.
Since then Indra has directed everything from dramas such as The Bill, Casualty, Holby City, London’s Burning, The Grand, Where The Heart Is and Down To Earth, to lighthearted children’s series Girls In Love and The Worst Witch. He’s directed comedies as “Carry-On” as Is Harry On The Boat to the more gentle humour of the much-loved Grandpa Chatterjee.
He directed the Channel Four mini-series Bombay Blue entirely in Mumbai, India. More recently he directed the feature-length opener of Bishaash – BBC World Service Trust’s sc-fi comedy-adventure series – a South Asian cross between X-Files, Torchwood and Scooby Doo.
In 2013 Indra co-wrote and directed Bollywood Carmen – a live BBC extravaganza on the streets of Bradford which was nominated for the ‘Sport & Live Event’ BAFTA, the Broadcast Awards Best Music Programme, the RTS Best Live Event Award and the Televisual Bulldog Award for Best Live Event.
Indra’s writing includes his screenplays – the award-winning script of Shona May and his Channel Four documentary Puja, Puja and several shorts. He has co-written feature script Ebenezer Goodbye with actor Ross McCall (Band of Brothers / Ghost Whisperer).
