About his childhood /teenage days and entry into films:

"I was born in a remote village of Rajasthan; my father was a doctor who was keen on social service and had moved to this part of the country to serve the people and his country. I grew up with nature, amid fields, sands, horse and camel rides. Kites and water from the wells was a part of life….it was a very different kind of childhood from all other Bengali boys of my age. When I was ready for college, I wanted to study science and took admission in Maharana Bhopal College of Udaipur. The projection room of the college was a big draw for all the students where films were screened. When a few 18 year olds met, the debate on films would reach its height. A friend had challenged me to make a film myself and then prove my arguments ...
