Nomination Detail

Kiiran Deohans graduated as a cinematographer from the Film and Television Institute of India in 1981. He began his career as an assistant cameraman in feature films and won the Filmfare Award for his first film, Qayamat Sey Qayamat Tak. In spite of many subsequent offers from big productions, Kiiran chose to concentrate on shooting and directing commercials. He shot more than 800 commercials and won many awards for his cinematography. Rakesh Mehra then asked Kiiran to work on Aks the Reflection for which he received nominations from both Filmfare and Screen. Kiiran continued to shoot features including Kabhi Kushi Kabhi Gham which won him the Sansui Award for Best Cinematography. His latest nomination, film Jodhaa Akbar attracted Kiiran because of the opportunity to work with Ashutosh Gowariker, director of the Academy Award-nominated film Lagaan.
