Ashok Pandit shot into prominence with Filmi Chakkar -one of the more successful comedies on satellite TV. Soon after he made Tere Mere Sapne, a serial that depicted the story of a joint family set in today's milieu. He also has to his credit one of the most successful countdown shows on satellite TV - Colgate Top 10.
However the projects that are closest to Pandit's heart are the ones he is currently working on - a serial called Muqammal for Star Plus which is "a woman's search for a complete man".
Pandit is also fiercely passionate about his first movie Meri Zameen. The movie is set in the backdrop of the Kashmir problem and brings to light the plight of the Kashmiri Pandit community to which he belongs. In fact it was this passion and anger that made him shoot a documentary 'Sharnarthi Apne Desh Mein' which won the RAPA awards for the best documentary last year.
Today, Pandit along with wife Neerja, who is a playback singer, and their two children constitute a happy family but one meeting with this talented film-maker makes it clear that Kashmir is very much a part of his sensibilities. [Courtesy: Indian Television]
