She made her directorial debut through ‘Antaral’ that was appreciated by critics, but it failed to perform at the box office.

She also won the ‘Best Director’ award at the ‘D Cine Award‘. She reportedly was frustrated by the politics of release and holdover in theater and told that she wouldn’t direct another movie.

But, the producers of ‘Shree Paanch Ambare’ convinced Dipa to direct another movie.
