An entrepreneur, investor, connoisseur and curator are few of the hats that Prshant wears in his role as the co-founder of Kalakriti India.

Hailing from a traditional business family with presence in Hyderabad for over 150 years. His interests in real estate, phygytal stores, hospitality and WASH, Prshant ventured out into the hitherto unexplored territory of Art in year 2002.

He hails from a family of philanthropists who have established many educational and charitable institutions across the erstwhile Hyderabad State.

Krishnakriti Foundation organises the oldest festival of art and culture in Hyderabad and is involved in fellowship programs with the French government.

His passion for history resulted in creation of Kalakriti Archive, one of the largest private collection of vintage maps, photographs and artifacts of Indian sub-continent.

For his efforts in the bilateral promotion of art and culture, Prshant was awarded the French government’s second highest civilian award for art, “Chevalier dans l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres” (Knight of the Order of Arts and Letters).
