Kopal Naithani

Founder/ Director - Superfly Films

Kopal Naithani is one of India’s leading advertising directors today, and a trailblazer of sorts for young women in the industry.  She started out with Shoojit Sircar working closely with him over 16 years. In 2016 she launched her own production house ‘Superfly Films’. Over these two decades, Kopal has made a mark as a director-producer in the Indian advertising industry. Her work has won her 5 ABBYS (2023) for “The Superwoman” and “The Interview'', 1 Gold for “The Superwoman” at the Kyoorius Creative Awards and 2 Silvers for “The Superwoman” and “The Interview” respectively. She also won 3 ABBYs (2022) for “Marriage Conversations’ and 5 DIGIES (2019) for ‘Choose Your Age’ and ‘Gen E’ under her belt. ‘Marriage Conversations’ also won the Grand Prix at the Ladli Media and Advertising Awards in the Gender Sensitivity category.

Today, she is recognised for her story-telling, detailing, and for extracting powerful performances. She has established herself as a creator of powerful and stylish films, without compromising on her core aesthetic values. Despite disparate brands like Flipkart, Glow and Lovely, Lifebuoy, Nyka and Vivo, as well as Tanishq and Byju’s, she has retained her skill of both performance- and style- driven films.


Kopal has also expanded her oeuvre to long-form filmmaking: she is the co-director, along with Tanuja Chandra, for an all-female-lead web series titled ‘Hush Hush’ that released in 2022 on Amazon Prime Video to both popular and critical acclaim. Since then, she has worked on two more shows for Amazon Prime Video which are slated for release at the end of the year. However, advertising remains, and shall continue to be, her true love and passion.
