Ankur Tewari is a story-teller. He has spent the better part of his life discovering different mediums to share his tales. At times his stories find their way through his music and at other times through his films. His songs are simple and evocative; they come from an honest and at times vulnerable space, which makes them easy to form an instant connection with. He plays with his band "The Ghalat Family". Together they have been travelling across India playing at major music festivals and locales over the past eight years. With a loyal fan base that has been steadily growing, their journey has only gotten more impressive and exciting over time. Highlights have included opening for world-renowned artists like Raul Midon, Fink and Norah Jones.
Ankur Tewari, who also moonlights as a singer-songwriter, is a well-known Bollywood lyricist and composer, and is at the helm of the band's sound. His lyrics form an emotional connect with the audience, creating an overwhelming and immersive live set--a factor that has played a prominent role in launching them to the top of the college & festivals circuit in the country.
Born into a family of engineers and teachers, he decided to do hotel management and graduated from IHM, Bhopal. Almost immediately, he switched to music and theatre. His 'break' came with Col. Kapoor as a song-writer/ musician for his TV series EkaurFauji. He was Art Director for the TV series Rajdhani (Star Plus), produced by Bobby Bedi. He also worked with Shekhar Kapur's Digital Talkies as a Producer where he curated India's first International Digital Video Film Festival. He was the executive producer for India's first Digital Video Feature, Pankaj Advani's, Urf Professor. He also did sound for the Award-winning documentary My Friend Su that won laurels at Yamagata International Documentary Film Festival, Japan.
He produced Game that was the closing film in the Commonwealth International Film Festival in Manchester, UK. His camerawork on Touch the Sky, a short film on the 'DahiHandi' festival, was awarded the Commonwealth Vision Award (2002). He has directed music videos for artists like Kailash Kher, Sona Family and Yana Gupta, among others. His music video to the UK chartbuster song "Kangana" for Dr. Zeus was nominated in the British Asian Music Awards in the best video category.
His debut feature film as a director, Let's Enjoy, was released on the first of October 2004. Since then he has scripted movie screenplays for UTV (Game On), TIPS (Charles) and Vishesh Films (Rain). He has composed music for Gully Boy, which is releasing in early February.
