Hello. My name is Santosh Maharshi. A child actor turned network engineer turned product manager. I started up and down. Now I am based in Pune and consult companies world-over.


I am consulting startups and companies in India and US.

With Gray Matrix I have the opportunity to work with Pidilite, East-West Seeds, AxisDirect, HDFC, IIFL and many others in Enterprise web and mobility. We are also building up Team Tracker App, Burnbill and Talkk.ai.

Also, consulting K-12 education startup in the USA – Schoolze. At Schoolze,   we’ve created a secure suite of productivity tools to save teachers time, engage communities, and enhance School Context.


Have worked with Microsoft for MSN India and SEA as a program manager and business manager. Successfully lead the launch, management, and growth of the web and mobile properties in various domains like Education, Finance, Travel, Lifestyle, News, Events, Advertorials, Sponsorships, Budgeting and so on.

At Rediff I had launched India’s very own Social Network – Rediff Connexions and Community Q&A Service – Rediff Q&A,

And, it all started as a network engineer with companies like Compunics, Dishnet DSL & Reliance Infocomm.


I started my careers in films and tv as a child actor.

TV – Puraskar & Ek Kahani
Movies – Aaj Ke Angaarey, Tan Badan, Shiva Shakti, Madaari and Naam Hai Krishna.

I later then got spoiled by world cinema with the introduction of satellite television in India. I had a self-realization that I am a bad actor and writing and direction is my thing. Now I am a bathroom filmmaker.

I am a child of a global, social and networked world. I think of myself as a good ideator and problem solver. And, I love internet products of all kinds. You can chat with me on Skype (santoshk100), connect with me on LinkedIn, follow me on Twitter and call me on my mobile or Whatsapp me.
