The issue is that VFX in Bollywood is dead. However, in Hollywood, the music videos are completely based on VFX and I want to bring that to Bollywood. After a long time of practice and a lot of efforts, my work is finally gaining appreciation. One day I got a call from Raftaar Sir and he asked me about work on the VFX for his music video. He gave me a chance and I gave it my best shot", said Ankit.

Ankit has done some videos for very well known dancers and choreographers - Malvin Louis, Tejas Dhoke, Teamnach, Sonali Bhadoria, Dhanashree Verma, Bandagi Kalra, Varun Dhawan, Neha Kakkar, Hollywood actress Maria Laura and Akshun Abhimanyu, Sean Lew after his VFX edits made their videos take new heights.

Ankit founded his company Let's VFX in 2015. He initially started by doing some whacky music videos and slowly his work started to gain attention. He recently collaborated with T-Series for songs and did VFX in Tulsi Kumar's video.

His pure dedication and curiosity birth many of his great work and pivoted his company to success. Ankit's VFX work can also be seen in upcoming Bollywood film Yeh Hai India Which is set to release on 24th May.
