The year 1994 was a challenging year for him in terms of his career, as he shot pilot(test) episodes for many serials, but none of them were converted to long TV shows. He was shooting for a telefilm called Abhinetri but even that was cancelled.
Afterwards, in 1997, Mandar met the legendary actor/director Vinay Apte who liked his work and gave him an opportunity. He directed a few episodes for serials like Bokya Satbande, Valvacha Paus etc for Apte.

Kuch toh log Kahenge by Rajan Shahi productions was his debut Hindi serial. He has also directed a film called Kshan with Subodh Bhave, but it failed to impress at the box office.

He is a proud owner of the Range Rover car. Over the range of his career, he has directed over 3000 episodes across his various serials.
