According to Bedi, his first step towards becoming a bankable film producer was only sheer luck. His bold attitude is enough to define his approach to life. His first step encouraged him to leave the security of the corporate field and test his fortune with a small production. The first film he produced, was named, 'In Which Annie gives it those Ones.’ This movie had a budget of US$20,000.

But Bedi's baptism of fire came in 1992 with another project Electric Moon, which got it’s expenditure from a T.V. broadcaster from U.K. This film is recorded in the history of Indian Cinema as the first film to be shot using synchronized sound. Bedi says that he learned how to produce a movie from Graham Easton, a reputed professional in International Film Industry. One after another, he gave movies which ushered India's film industry into a new era. His movie, Bandit Queen in 1994 went to Cannes, the world's most prestigious competitive film festival and won critical acclaim over the world spreading Bedi's fame as a man with a strong creative vision. This movie made him an International sensation.

With this, he went on producing new movies like, Chintuji, American Daylight, Train to Pakistan, The Stoneman Murders, Maqbool, Mangal Pandey, The Rising and Sathiya, etc. His story of success doesn't stop here. It is an interesting fact that Bobby Bedi is also working as an advisor to the country's Minister of Information and Broadcasting and the Industrial Development Bank of India.
