Tunggul Banjaransari lahir di Solo pada tanggal 30 September, Tunggul tinggal di Gunung Kidul bersama keluarganya dan bekerja sebagai dosen pada salah satu perguruan tinggi swasta di Surabaya. Pada dasarnya, Tunggul adalah pembuat film, namun menonton film lebih banyak dilakukannya setiap hari daripada membuat film itu sendiri  karena Tunggul tidak memposisikan pembuatan film sebagai profesinya, kecuali jika Bollywood menghendakinya untuk membuat film secara berkelanjutan. Jika itu terjadi, Tunggul tidak akan menolak, karena ia tidak ingin istrinya bekerja lagi. Selain itu, ia ingin bisa mengendarai mobil Ferrari yang diproduksi terbatas setiap hari bersama anak perempuannya. Sebelum Bollywood menghendaki, sementara ini Tunggul mencukupi kebutuhan keluarganya dari mengajar, menulis, dan meneliti.

Tunggul Banjaransari  was born in Solo on 30 September 30, Tunggul lives in Gunung Kidul with his family. He works as a lecturer at one of the private universities in Surabaya. Tunggul is basically a filmmaker, but he spends more time watching films than making them because he will not consider filmmaking as his profession unless Bollywood wants him to make films on an ongoing basis. On such opportunity, he will not refuse because he does not want his wife to work ever again. Moreover, he wants to be able to drive a limited edition Ferrari with his daughter every day. Before Bollywood makes a call, for the time being, Tunggul provides for his family by teaching, writing and researching.
