Chowdhary always had a deep affinity towards direction.
Having established himself as a successful producer Mr.
Chowdhary decided to attain this personal dream. For his
directorial debut he selected a literary classic that he
admired. Translating this complex novel by Bimal Mitra
into a tele-serial was a challenge. The product Mujrim
Haazir was unique in receiving acclaim of the critics
and masses alike. Mujrim Haazir won all the major awards
of the year including the best director and best serial.
With this Mr. Chowdhary established himself as a
complete creative personality. With the balanced
handling of drama, emotions, romance, socially relevant
themes excellent command over the craft of scripting Mr.
Chowdhary's subsequent directorial endeavours too won
him much acclaim. And with his handling of another
literary classic Intezaar Aur Sahi Mr. Chowdhary is
today acclaimed as one of the very few makers in India,
who have been able to do justice to literary classics.
With its Daily Soap, Intezaar Aur Sahi, Mr. Chowdhary
felt the need and established a marketing set-up for
local time-selling as well as selling software in the
international market. Samvaad has grown from strength to
strength. Over the years Samvaad has shown itself
capable of adapting to the changing ground realities.
Today, Samvaad, under Mr. Chowdhary's guidance is
undergoing a major expansion in the form of a
state-of-the-art, International Standard Shooting
Studio, (SAMVAAD STUDIO) and also venturing into Film Production.
