My blogging career:

 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.

The blog received five thousand hits on an average everyday for one year. 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.
