I spent my early
childhood in various girl's schools such as Queen Mary and
Walsingham, but eventually and luckily came to Campion in the
5th standard and passed out of Campion in 1965. with a 14
aggregate. Second only to the unbeatable Jamal Mecklai.
The Sea Scouts, Father More, Mr Hodiwala and especially Mr
Sidney Brown had a tremendous impact on me in school. I grew to
love maths, developed an analytical sort of mind that tried to
understand the meaning of life via numbers, loved the sea, and
travel. Sitting next to a likeminded back bencher Ashok
Daryanani for the last few years of school I learnt to play
guitar from him with the help of diagrams in class. As soon as
the ISC exams were over four Campionites (two of them ex) formed
a band called the Bad Boys. We played shows in Bombay and Poona
and I must say got quite popular. The band definitely helped us
debut in the outside world of girls and partying and good
times.I finished my education in St Xaviers College which was of
no consequence as I had already started making advertising
films, directing independently for my dad in his company at the
tender age of 17. By now I’ve done more than a couple of
thousand commercials, helped build many brands such as Liril,
Nirma, Vimal, Mera Bharat Mahan etc. Won quite a few national
and international awards and am still at it going strong and
about to produce and direct a couple of feature films. More
about me professionally at
www.kailashpictureco.comI am having a good successful life
working with my wife and partner Aarti Gupta Surendranath who I
met as a model during a Sun Silk shoot in Kodaikanal (I was 25
she was just 15) and have two kids in BIS (boy 11 and girl 9) we
preferred to put them together in a co-ed school. Although there
is a perception that we are 'party people' thanks to the media,
I must emphasize that we work very hard and take pride in our
Thank you Campion and all the teachers and all my friends from
school for having such a positive influence on my childhood.
