Ten years after being born in Ghana, Vishal Punjabi migrated to England to continue his education in IT, Drama, and Business. After dabbling in the dot com boom at the turn of the millennium, he shifted careers to join Red Chillies Entertainment as a line producer.
While working on his second feature film ‘Main Hoon Na’, his knack for visual art was picked up by his bosses. He was allowed to set up a team for Visual Art by putting together visual effects productions for films like ‘Asoka,’ ‘Main Hoon Na,’ ‘Paheli,’ ‘Don’ and ‘Honeymoon Travels Pvt. Ltd.’
He then moved into the advertising division within Red Chillies Entertainment to produce and direct television commercials for clients and products like Hero Honda, Pepsi, Hyundai, ITC Foods, Wipro, Videocon, Emami Group and ICICI Bank, to name a few.
This young visual artist has also worked with agencies like FCB/ULKA, J. Walter Thompson, Saatchi & Saatchi, Ambience, and many more. He has even written a few of the commercials he has directed. A winner of two Seagate Technical Awards for excellence in Television Advertising, and an Asian AdFest Finalist, his is a name to reckon with in the world of advertising.
