His short films, ‘Wolf of Chawl Street’ (2017), ‘Kanika’ (2018) and ‘New Year’s Eve’ (2019) won awards including the 'Best Film' at MAMI (Mumbai Film Festival 17' & 18') and have been awarded at the prestigious Dada Saheb Phalke Festival,. These have gone on to premiere on Short of the Week and have streamed on MUBI.


In early 2020, he was invited to Malibu to participate in Vanishing Angle’s Short-to-feature Lab (hosted by Jim Cummings) for his project, ‘New Year’s Eve’. During the global lockdown, Pranav directed a tragicomedy mini-series called 'Cabin Fever', produced by Jugaad Motion Pictures.

His stories, often set in bustling Indian cities, speak of love, vulnerability, and the resilient human spirit.
