Vivek Ranjan Agnihotri is an Indian film director, screenwriter, and author. As of 2019, he is member of the board of India's Central Board of Film Certification. Agnihotri started his career with advertorial agencies and moved to producing and directing tele-serials; his work has been positively received. He debuted in Bollywood with the crime thriller Chocolate (2005) and went on to direct multiple films. With the exception of The Tashkent Files and Hate Story, his films have received mostly poor reviews from critics and have under-performed at box-office. In 2017, his first short film Mohammad and Urvashi won the Dadasaheb Phalke Award for best actor. Agnihotri has been frequently associated with the right wing (and Bharatiya Janata Party) by media and has been subject to controversies; he though rejects the tag and self-identifies as India-Wing.
