It’s a milestone achievement in his lifetime. Hailing from a small town Baripada from Odisha, after his graduation from Utkal University, Bhubaneswar, Amulya tried his fate in Ollywood (Odia film industry). He directed few upfront Odia TV serials like Prayaschit for ETV & Bijayini for Doordarshan. In 2007 he was a victim of an injustice. He directed an Ollywood film, but unfortunately his name was dropped out from the film. But instead of keep fighting with others he ignored the incidence & moved ahead. Instead losing faith he wanted to take revenge for that injustice incident and he promised to himself, “one day I will be a leading mainstream filmmaker at all India level!”
For Amulya, the dream was to conquer the world and touch the sky. He never wanted to restrict himself to a confined boundary. After trained from M.G.R.

Having zero connection with industry after few strugglefull years he could not achieve his dream and came back to Odisha and continued working in Ollywood. But he had never forgotten his goal. After that bitter incidence in 2007, he struggled and fought for 12 long years until he cherished his dream without forgetting his determination one single day! Again after almost 20 years he moved to Mumbai in 2017 and continued his struggle. He assisted Bollywood TV series like Aahat. With his hard work, sheer determination & commitment to achieve his dream he started his own production company Films@50 (Dream of a common man). And the reason behind giving this name was he was at his 50 and still dreaming like a common man to make his footmark in Bollywood. And finally all the blood & sweat has paid off. Yes, He has achieved his uncommon dream at the age of 50! His upcoming Bollywood film ‘O’ Pushpa I hate tears releasing worldwide in Hindi & Kannada very soon on 7 Feb 2020.
