Early life and education

Kaushik Ghatak was born in Katwa in Bardhaman, West Bengal on 12 August 1971. He attended St. Xavier's school at Hazaribagh in Bihar & graduated from St. Xavier's college, Ranchi with Geology (Hons). He enrolled at the Asian Academy of Film & Television, Noida to learn the skills of film making. Prominent film maker, Anurag Basu provided Ghatak with the first break as an apprentice assistant; Ghatak assisted Basu on several television projects – Rishtey, Raahat, Saturday Suspense, Koshish-‐Ek Aasha and more. Ghatak also assisted Partho Mitra, Gaurav Pandey, Goutam Mukherjee and Amitabh Bhattacharyaon on different shows, ad-films and television commercials.


Ghatak's first independent show as a director was with a Bengali serial Amra Povashi aired on Alpha Bangla and with a Hindi serial Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi produced by Balaji Telefilms and aired on Star Plus. Starting from the 35th episode up to the 155th episode, Ghatak directed over 100 episodes of Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi and at this time the show registered the highest TRP at the time of original Mihir Virani's death; post Ghatak's exit from the project, the show went steadily downhill.


Ghatak made his directorial film debut in 2008 with the film Ek Vivaah... Aisa Bhi starring Sonu Sood and Isha Koppikar. It was produced by Sooraj R. Barjatya, under the Rajshri Productions banner. This film did not perform too well at the Box Office. His next project is with producer Kavita K. Barjatya, under the Rajshri Productions banner; the film name is Samrat & Co. and is slated to release on 1 May 2014.
