Sinha worked for two years in New Delhi as an engineer before moving to Mumbai on 4 December 1990. He worked as an assistant director to Pankaj Parashar until 1994 before branching out as an independent director for television for Zee TV. He received notice for his work on Shikast, the flagship show of the TV network in Mumbai. This was followed by the TV show Sea Hawks for UTV. Sea Hawks was the number one show for 35 weeks across all networks. 72 episodes later, he turned to directing music videos.[citation needed]

In 2000, he left working on music videos to start his first feature film Tum Bin. In July 2001, Tum Bin and Amitabh Bachchan's Aks were released on the same day. Tum Bin managed to beat Aks on box-office [3].

Sinha's second feature Aapko Pehle Bhi Kahin Dekha Hai, also with lesser known actors in lead roles as was Tum Bin, did not fare well at the box office.[4] His third film, the multi-starrer Dus, was the eighth highest grossing film of the year 2005[5]. This was followed by Tathastu (2006) and Cash (2007).

Before directing and producing Tum Bin II and Mulk, Sinha directed Shah Rukh Khan starrer superhero film, Ra.One for which he wrote the script as well along with Kanika Dhillon. The film broke many box-office records that year[6]. Tum Bin II and Mulk are considered as successful films in Bollywood.

Sinha is also the founder and owner of Benaras Media Works, the production company which he established in 2012 to produce his films and television projects.[7][8]
