MADHUKAR KOTIANMadhukar Kotian started his career as a software developer but soon realised that his taste and preferences lay elsewhere. He initiated in film making and got his feet wet in production. He worked in few important campaigns for Coca Cola, Honda, Bajaj, P&G, Unliveres etc during his formative days and then was ready for the challenging and competitive World of the advertising industry of Mumbai.
Next was a 8 year stint under the editor/film maker Mintoo Singh (Classics Films) where he worked as an Executive Producer and shot all over the world. He did in Australia, with Hritik Roshan in Cape town, Aishwarya Rai for Nakshatra diamonds in Mumbai, famous cricketers like Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid etc and numerous other well known advertising campaigns in South East Asia (Bangkok, Malaysia and Singapore). Next, Madhukar moved on to Blink Pictures with Indrajit Nattoji and here again he spent valuable years producing memorable TV commercials.
In 2007 madhukar felt the need to setup something independently. He named his company Fingeprint Films, as he wanted his work to leave its own “fingerprint”. Since its conception, Fingerprint has shot with celebrities like Deepika Padukone, Soha Ali Khan, Shilpa Shetty, Madhuri Dixit and many more. With offices in East Africa (Nairobi and Dar-Es-Salam), and a directorial panel with some international directors from India, Malaysia and Europe, the company has a portfolio that can be proud of a vast range of TV commercials shot both in India and almost all across the world. Today Fingerprint Films is one of the fastest growing production houses in Mumbai, with a core group of talented, supremely committed cinema literate employees.
Madhukar Kotian is a vastly talented producer but a simple man. Thus to remain simple is the motto of Fingerprint Films and its work speaks for itself.
