About Rajan Shahi

RAJAN SHAHI has since childhood, been associated with the film industry due to his maternal grandfather, veteran film actor Mr.P.JAIRAJ (who received DadaSaheb Phalke Puraskaar in 1982). With film in his genes, it was inevitable that Rajan would enter the entertainment industry. In 1994, Rajan joined Producer Mr.RAVI RAI as a Director, and was actively involved in the famous serials Sailaab and Thoda Hai Thode Ki Jaroorat Hai.

Rajan Shahi directed his first independent show "DIL HAI KI MANTA NAHI" in 1999 and has subsequently directed hit shows like "JASSI JAISI KOI NAHI", "HAMARE TUMHARE", "RISHTEY", "KAREENA KAREENA", "RETH”, "MAMTAA", "MILLEE", "VIRASAAT", "SAATHI RE" and many more. He also worked as a series director for “GHAR KI LAXMI BETIYAAN”, “MAAYAKA” and "SATH PHERE".

DIRECTOR'S KUT PRODUCTION runs on the philosophy of "Do your best, your very best and do it every day". As the Founder and Promoter of Director's Kut Production, Rajan administers and manages the company, playing a pivotal role in Pre-Production, and is actively involved in the Shooting and Post- Production. As a technician and creative person he is also involved in all the departments and his extremely professional set up has played a large hand in the success his productions garner.


In 2007, Rajan Shahi opened his own Production House "DIRECTOR'S KUT PRODUCTION" and turned producer with his HIT show "SAPNA BABUL KI BIDAAI" aired on STAR PLUS, followed by numerous successful shows across various channels. Namely "YEH RISHTA KYA KEHLATA HAI" on STAR PLUS, "SWARG" on COLORS , "CHAND CHUPA BADAL MEIN" on STAR PLUS , "HAWAN" on COLORS, " JAMUNA PAAR" on IMAGINE TV, "KUCH TO LOG KAHENGE" on SONY TV , "AMRIT MANTHAN" on LIFE OK, AUR PYAAR HO GAYA on ZEE TV, a Telefilm "TERI MERI LOVE STORY" on STAR PLUS,"ITTI SI KHUSHI" on SONY and ''TERE SHEHER MEIN'' on STAR PLUS.

Conceptualized and set up by director-turned-producer Rajan Shahi, Director's Kut follows the thumb rule of giving the channel a product which is conceived, monitored and delivered by technicians with varied industry experience. And their track record only went on to endear both, the man, and the company to the channels.

In a short span of 10 years, Rajan Shahi and Directors Kut Production, have carved a niche for themselves in the world of entertainment. The production house has truly churned out popular "entertainment" and is one of the top 5 production houses in the country, enjoying the confidence and support of all the top channels of the country.

Actors and new talent have always found room at DKP, Rajan and Director's Kut have upheld an impeccable reputation. Rajan Shahi has effortlessly won the trust and sincere loyalty from his team members. The working style at DKP is like a joint family, where the head of the family enjoys the love of his family members, but, at the same time, is looked upon as the captain of the ship under whose guidance the entire family is ready to tackle any obstacles and eventually make it work in their favor.

This year DKP's flagship show YRKKH completes 2475 plus episodes. The longest running show on Star Plus. A show, whose success has been nothing short of a miracle - amidst the high voltage saas-bahu dramas aired on television, this, is one show that rides on the simple day to day routine, on the beauty and the sincerity of relationships. At 2475+ episodes and counting, it still ranks among the top 5 shows in the country, a feat that no serial has managed to achieve yet. Rajan Shahi’s Director’s Kut Production has won “DADA SAHEBH PHALKE AWARD” for BEST TELEVISION PRODUCTION HOUSE and another one for longest running show in Indian Television “YEH RISHTA KYA KEH LATA HAI.”

At DKP, the word duplication has no room. Each and every show that the production house designs is dramatically different from the rest. If there are shows that are sweet, simple and melodious, there are shows that are dramatic and have super high conflict and drama and at the same time, there are shows that deal with the complexities of mature relationships - all coming from DKP with the thought and vision of one man - Rajan Shahi.
