Ashish Kulkarni

Founder – Punnaryug Artvision

Ashish S.K. is known to be the most dedicated and colorful personality in the animation industry, this side of Hollywood. He has set up world-class animation studios in India, has created the finest original Indian animated contents and has successfully completed and marketed several animation films for studios in Hollywood over the last nine years.

Ashish S K is a founder of Punnaryug Artvision Pvt Ltd & Screenyug Creations Pvt Ltd. Ashish S K was heading Reliance Animation & Reliance AIMS as CEO. He has taken Reliance Animation to the global arena while carving a niche as the finest Indian animation studio for original IP creation. Ashish S K was recently awarded “The Creative Entrepreneur of the Year” by the Entrepreneur magazine.

Ashish Kulkarni embarked on his journey in the field of arts and media in 1995 and since has immersed himself in the pursuit of conceiving sustainable careers in film, animation, visual effects, gaming, visual arts, and graphic design in India. Ashish’s presence in the field of the arts commenced with the animation industry, the seed of which, had only been planted in the fertile grounds of the Indian economy at the turn of the century. At this early stage, Ashish jumpstarted the sprouting of the animation industry in India by facilitating outsourcing projects in the country with animation giants such as Disney, Warner Bros., Sony and Dreamworks. By introducing India as a new outsourcing platform for animation, Ashish had created the opportunity for Indian animation services to grow to international standards. During this stage, Ashish produced ad films for All Out, Flying Machine, Max Candy & Max Ice cream for HLL, Nestle, Veneta Cucine and Kelloggs.

As the sapling of the Indian animation industry grew, Ashish envisioned a future in which, India was not caged in the confines of outsourcing, but competed as a global player in the arena of original IP creation. What followed was the development of iconic character brands and shows such as Little Krishna, Krishna Aur Kans, Big Bees and Shaktimaan, by Ashish and his creative team while he served as CEO of Reliance Animation. Currently, Ashish is working on properties such as War Heroes of India, Mary Kom Jr., Amazing Kids, Monkey Creek and Map Jacket.
