Rajeev Chaudhari's Profile

Right from his beginnings as a film trade journalist, Rajeev Chaudhari has a passionate, multifaceted involvement with Bollywood and the audio-visual world of entertainment- television and cinema.

His career in writing (film trade journalism - ' FILM INFORMATION') led, almost naturally, to the business of publicity and PR for various well known production banners and film personalities including Dev Anand, Bhappi Soni, Garware's, Rajshri Productions and many others. This phase of what Rajeev calls 'his hands on learning' with superior minds plus his own desire to excel is what has shaped one of Bollywood's youngest and fastest writer/director/producers.

All of Rajeev's projects, to date, carry his unmistakable, personal signature on the concept, script, production and direction. His team shares his passion, energy and dedication and has delivered a steady stream of immensely popular projects to various local, national, as well as international screens – in theatres as well as on television. The subsidiary companies owned by Rajeev Chaudhari are Avanti Arts, Avanti International, Avanti Films, Avanti Ads.

Rajeev Chaudhari's professional links with Bollywood go back to his salad days as a popular journalist with "Film Information". His avid interest in show biz landed him a career as a much-pursued publicist for O.P.Ralhan,Rajshri Productions, Navketan, Bhappie Soni, Garware, Kenwood, NEPC and a host of thriving production corporations. And again, it was this same involved pursuit of every bit of celluloid that found Rajeev serving as secretary of IMPPA, followed by another, similar term at the FMC.

The next step, naturally, was independent production, Rajeev Produced & Directed a Bollywood movie thriller 'Gunaah', and set up his own production house "Rajeev Choudhari Creations". A string of television serials followed 'Filmi Baatein' (ZEE), 'Aaj Ki Taaza Khabar' (DD/Plus), 'Shop-n-Sing' (NEPC/IN), 'Bollywood to Ajman' (Ajman TV - UAE), 'Bollywood News' (TV Asia - UK), 'Around the World' (In-Mumbai).
