He wrote and directed a number of plays during college and brought a play to Thespo at Prithvi theatre in Mumbai and won with it.

He then decided to go back to Delhi and pursue a career in ad film making. After a while the urge to make films brought him back to Mumbai and he decided to make Ad films professionally and take out time for his own passion projects like Suburban King.
The inspiration behind Aakash's filmmaking is purely the films that don’t conform to the notion of pre-existing formats. Coming to making the challenges faced while making this film, Aakash said 'The film posed the challenge of its scale and danger that was inherent to the plot. And the same space of challenges that any young filmmaker across the world faces. With the support of Storytellers, the production house I’m represented by, and a bunch of young guys like me who wanted to make this film happen at any cost, we pulled it together. I mean truthfully, having an idea is one thing but executing it is another. If it were not for Storytellers who backed me and believed in my idea, it would not have happened. We saw it through together'
