Digital Content Creator and one of the Best Writers in India

Anand Sivakumaran has been telling stories since he was 5. He has written for the print media, for advertising, for radio, television (genres ranging from comedy to horror, youthful drama to sci-fi and fantasy), films like Kalyug and now the web. His novel ‘Natasha Mehra Must die’ the first of the Doomsday Trilogy is all set to be published post which he will add his name among the Best authors in India. This book is a thriller, the next ‘64’ is a love story that comes with an expiry date. Anand’s repertoire spreads across a variety of genres. He will therefore be regaling the reading public in myriad ways, in the years to come, His writing is pacy, crisp and very visual, obviously influenced by his having been a movie script writer and television script writer for almost two decades. He always has a love for the written word and his sentences roll off the tongue in an almost musical fashion.

One of the Best Screenplay writers in India

Anand Sivakumaran has been a screenwriter for over 17 years. He has written path breaking films like Kalyug, genre films like Nazar and Buddha Mar Gaya and the as yet unreleased Detour. In Television he has written sitcoms like Yeh Hai Mumbai Meri Jaan and Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa, light drama like Jassi Jaisi Koi Nahin, thrillers like Guns and Roses, youthful drama like The Buddy Project, Sadda Haq, rom coms like Miley Jab Hum Tum and Jab Love Hua, adventure like Lucky, Sci-fi like Antariksh and fantasy like Hatim. He recently did a social messaging series Adhafull which became the most popular show on DD. He has won awards like the ITA award for the best youth series. His mastery over multiple genres, depth of characterisation, reflection of the socioeconomic realities make him one of the best writers in India. In the years to come, one hopes to see lots more film scripts from him and him finding his place amongst the renown screenplay writers in India.
