He was casting director for 1995's Stiff Upper Lips, in which he also had a cameo role as a stallholder,[2] and 2000's The Warrior, directed by Asif Kapadia. He directed his first film, Haasil (released 2003), a love story set among politicized students in northern India. The film was critically well-received, nominated for six awards (including best directorial debut) at the Zee Cine Awards, where it won for best screenplay.[3] His second film Charas: A Joint Operation was a thriller concerning drug cartles, shot in marijuana-growing regions of Himachal Pradesh.

In 2011, Tigmanshu has come up with two films - the first one being Shagird which released on 13th May [4] and the second one was Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster [5]
