Piyush Jha is an acclaimed film director, ad filmmaker and the author of the bestselling novels, Mumbaistan and Compass Box Killer.
A student political leader at university, he pursued a career in advertising management. Later he switched tracks, first to make commercials for some of the country’s largest brands, and then to write and direct feature films.
While his novels explore the gritty, noir landscape of crime-fiction in Mumbai, Piyush’s films Chalo America, King of Bollywood and Sikandar are noted for the unconventionality of their subject matter and for their relevance to contemporary society.
Piyush lives in his beloved Mumbai, where he can often be found walking the streets that inspire his stories.
