When he was 13, he and his family shifted to London where he got his degree in engineering and then an MBA from Manchester University. He briefly worked with Reuters and quit his job in 1999.

Ghosh made his directorial debut with Jhankar Beats (2003). Conceived as a tribute to R D Burman and his work, the film is a story about love, friendship and music. The film starred Rahul Bose, Sanjay Suri, Juhi Chawla, Rinke Khanna, Riya Sen and Shayan Munshi in the lead roles. It was appreciated by critics and audiences alike.
