In his career that spans over forty years, many of his notable films were directed by Hrishikesh Mukherji. NC Sippy opted to be low-profile and only wishes his work to speak for him. He doesn’t usually go out, nor socialize with the media people, as he preferred to hang out with his family and friends. He even refused to attend the Filmfare Awards when he bagged the Best Film Award for the movie, Anand. Instead, he asked a family member to get the trophy for him because he was too shy to receive the award on stage. From Karachi, NC Sippy shifted to Mumbai in 1946. Comedian Gope had helped him to get work as a Production Manager. His first production film was Mahesh Kaul’s 1958 Bollywood film, Talaq.

Since then, their tandem had given legendary films such as Guddi (1971), Bawarchi (1972), Chupke Chupke (1975), Mili (1975), Gol Maal (1979), and Khubsoorat (1980). Gulzar, the director of Mere Apne (1971), got his first major break when NC Sippy signed him to direct the film. The two also worked in the Koshish (1972) and Achanak (1973). NC Sippy has also worked with actor, Mehmood, in films like Padosan (1968), Bombay to Goa (1972), and Do Phool (1973).
