Rohit Karn Batra was born in India. Originally, Rohit came from a non-film background. His parents are both teachers and he went through a traditional route. Rohit went on to study Computer Science at university, he got an Mba in New York and started his professional career in corporate America. But soon enough he turned to the film industry in 2010, his “true passion.” Rohit started doing music videos, then started to get into other aspects, namely post production and line production. It gave him the ground experience to learn about the different facets of film-making. Rohit has acted as producer of a number of short films at the start of his career, including Roundabout (2010), which was his debut as a director and story writer too. Other works include directing and producing one episode of 2012 TV documentary series Eco Fashion and the short film Goggles (2013). He then jumped into feature film after understanding the financial and technical end of things, which allowed him to raise money and make his debut film, Line of Descent.
