Singh was educated at a Himalayan boarding school in Shimla, India. He came to the United States when he was 24 years old and graduated from Pasadena's Art Center College of Design.
The director's major breakthrough was in REM's music video "Losing My Religion,€ť which won a Grammy AwardÂ and eight MTV awards including Best Music Video. Over the years, Singh has garnered numerous other awards including two Press Grand Prix awards in Cannes as well as D&AD, DGA and BAFTA Britannia awards.
Singh's first feature film was The Cell, a beautiful, shocking and hallucinatory psychological thriller that starred Jennifer Lopez and Vince Vaughn. In his second feature film, The Fall, Singh expanded his directorial role into that of producer and co-writer. Part heroic journey, part pure celebration of storytelling, The Fall shot in exotic locations spanning 25 countries and was hailed as one of the most original releases of 2006.
