Editor-turned-filmmaker Ajoy Verma is a Mumbai-based Keralite whose artistic repertoire spans across Bollywood and Mollywood. Ajoy started out as an editor, working with award-winning writer-director Rajiv Anchal in movies like Beyond the Soul (2002) and Nothing But Life (2004) before making his editorial debut in Bollywood with the Shahid Kapoor starrer Shikhar (2005).

Subsequently, Ajoy made his directorial debut with the movie S.R.K. (2009), which featured Vinay Pathak and Manoj Joshi in pivotal roles. In 2010, he made his sophomore directorial outing with the comedy-drama Dus Tola, which was a remake of the Malayalam film Ponmuttayidunna Tharavu (1988) and starred Manoj Bajpayee in the lead role. Though it failed to make a mark at the box office, the film was well-received in many circles. In 2018, Ajoy ventured into Malayalam cinema with Neerali, a thriller drama which starred Mohanlal and Nadhiya.
