Manjul Sinha is an Indian television director.

Sinha always wanted to be a director,[1] having grown up in a prominent family who had keen interest in films, having a cinema hall at Patna, film distribution and interests in Bhojpuri films.

After passing high school from sainik school tilaiya [2] and later graduating from the Film and Television Institute of India in Pune in 1977[3] Manjul Sinha came to Bombay in pursuit of a career in direction. After directing many small television advertisements, his first major break was with Yeh Jo Hai Zindagi, which was among the first sitcoms on Indian television.[1] At that time Indian television viewership was seeing a new dawn, colour television having just arrived, and Yeh Jo Hai Zindagi became very popular: cinema halls ran empty during the half-hour show on Friday night.[1]

More recently Sinha has been involved in making Yeh Hai Mumbai Meri Jaan,[1] another television serial.

He has mentored many upcoming film makers, writers and actor notable amongst them is Vipul K Rawal of Iqbal (film) fame.[citation needed]

In 2004 he was included on the panel of judges for the 29th Radio and Television Advertising Practitioners' Association of India (RAPA) awards.[4]
