His early work challenges perceptions around cultural taboos and identity by shining a light on the struggles of breaking into the creative industry from a working class, ethnic background. His challenging childhood drives his passion for storytelling which became an integral part of Pruthvi after finding truth, adventure and spirituality returning back from his study abroad in Arizona. From then he has continued to take lead and unveil the ugly truth and beautiful failures of life. Pruthvi's most recent work includes directing and producing Martin Goodman's ECTOPIA as an audiobook for Barbican Press.
