Filmmaker & Actor
Mayur Puri has donned many hats over his decade-long Bollywood career as a director, film writer, lyricist, and actor, but he primarily is and always remain a passionate story teller at heart - a role he'd never grow out of. Mayur is a leading game-changer responsible for the localization, trans-creation, and adaptations of various Hollywood films into Hindi translated blockbusters. He is the apt example of the small-town boy from Ahmedabad, who made it big in Bollywood through sheer conviction and hard work. He is the man chosen by big-ticket studios like Disney and Warner Brothers to recreate their billion-dollar cinematic experiences into regional translations better suited for the Hindi speaking Indian audience. The Lion King (2019), Avengers - End Game (2019), Pirates of the Caribbean - Dead Men Tell No Tales, Incredibles 2, Moana, Mowgli - The Legend of the Jungle, Avengers - Infinity War, Captain America - Civil War, Finding Dory are a few of the films that have reached the hearts of millions of Indian masses.
