Sengupta has spent two years in Lowe Mumbai, and the rest of his term in Bangalore. He holds an economics honours degree from St Xavier's College in Kolkata and an MBA from the Faculty of Management Studies in New Delhi.

Sengupta says, "It's not that I'm moving out. I might just return to advertising. But what I am off to do now is television. It's been a dream for a long time."

Sengupta is venturing into the content programming space for television. He wants to start his own media content venture, which will be announced very soon.

His chair at Lowe will now seat Deepa Geeta Krishna. She is currently group creative director.
