Blogging journey:

I started a blog called during May, 2013.

My blogs were based on my professional experiences as a journalist. I often shared investigative insights about the Indian Film Industry in Mumbai. Some of the most recognised names in Indian cinema blogged with me.

Subsequently, I was recognised as one of the most popular bloggers in India in 2014.

In 2015, the blog made way for the popular website bollywoodjournalist.com.

Today, the website is a boutique news agency and one of the most popular blogging platforms on the Indian Film and Entertainment Industry.
