Lulla was recently in news on April 9 for stepping down from the position of Chairman and Managing Director in advertising agency Grey Group India. Having joined Grey in 2014 he was instrumental in making it into a powerhouse, from restructuring to bringing in new capabilities, and landing in big clients.

Before Grey Group India he was with Bennett, Coleman & Co as President – Corporate Development. He had spent around nine years with the group in various leadership positions. Prior this, he worked with Sony Entertainment Television as Executive VP.
