Virendra was born on Oct 6th, 1974 in Jabalpur, a mid-size district in the central Indian state of Madhya Pradesh. He went to school in Balaghat, a small rural district about 180 Km. from his birthplace.
His life is an interesting example of breaking out of herd mentality and taking such challenges which no one has taken before. Virendra would never have become a writer if the burning desire to experiment with life did not drive him. From 1991 to 1995, he studied engineering in Gwalior, MP, and passed out with flying colours.
It was in 1995 that he decided to pursue storytelling. It was a tough call looking at his rural, Hindi speaking, middle class background. In 1997, he started out as a complete outsider in entertainment industry in an alien Metropolitan, Mumbai. A decade and half later, he now lives in Mumbai with an impressive body of work behind him.
Virendra is now a creator of content for Television, Films and Digital Media, an author, an entrepreneur, an angel investor and eternal wanderer.
When he is not busy working, Virendra is playing chess.
