Aasif K Farooki

Decades ago…in Bellary, a small town in Northern Karnataka, India, Aasif Farooki aka Aasif Kshathriya, popularly known as 'AK' was born on the 1st day of July in sixties, to learned parents, who were professors (now retired), by profession. Under the influence of his parents, he grew to become a secular and a rational man. With time, Aasif picked up the artistic talent from his Mother & reading habit from his Father.

After completing his Masters in Applied Electronics, he pursued MBA and also Indian Legal Studies. On the other hand, he grew up nurturing Fine arts, Crafts, Painting and Theater. At one point of time he felt, he should explore NATURAL WORLD in its true colors!! The ball was set rolling. Aasif went on traveling extensively. In the bargain, he left the brush and took to LENS!!

After serving as a Lecturer for about 13 years, he chose to become a Filmmaker, and this opened a whole new world for him to express himself. Involving in almost all facets of Film making, he writes Scripts, Songs, designs Costumes & Sets, does Acting &Cinematography too. He is fairly good at playing Musical Instruments !!

Being well versed with English, Hindi, Kannada & Urdu, Aasif is comfortable with most of the Indian languages.

His Passion for Life knows no boundaries. He loves Traveling, Singing, Cooking, Gardening, Trekking, Horseback riding, Strolling in Mist, Riding bike in the rains and Candle-light Dinners.

In a nutshell, Aasif is Simple, Happy, Wise & Lovable person who lives life moment by moment.
