Biography

Rohit Shetty is a director, presenter and cinematographer. He is the son of the late villain and fightmaster Shetty, who acted in many Hindi and Kannada movies. He married Maya Shetty on May 27, 2009.

He started his career at the age of 15 as an assistant director with Kuku Kohli with the film Phool Aur Kaante starring Ajay Devgan and directed his first feature film Zameen as an independent director with Devgan in 2003 at the age of 29.

He is from South India, from the city of Mangalore in Karnataka. He was interested in films since childhood as he belonged to a film family. At 13 or 14, he was certain that he wanted to be a director and never thought of becoming an actor.

He completed his Secondary School Certificate from St Mary’s School, Mumbai. Then he started working, first as an apprentice with Kuku Kohli during Phool Aur Kaante (Ajay Devgan’s debut film that co-starred Madhoo).

Then he assisted him in Ek Aur Kohinoor, which was never released. He also worked with him in Suhaag (Ajay, Akshay Kumar and Karisma Kapoor), Haqueeqat (Ajay and Tabu) and Zulmi (Akshay and Twinkle Khanna).

By then, he had developed a good rapport with Ajay Devgan. After that he started working with Anees Bazmee on the film, Pyaar To Hona Hi Tha (Ajay, Kajol), followed by Ajay’s home productions, Hindustan Ki Kasam and Raju Chacha.

During the making of Pyaar To Hona Hi Tha, he knew he was ready to make his own film. When they were planning Raju Chacha, it was decided that he would make his directorial debut after Anil Devgan, and Ajay would act in it.
