He is the chairman and managing director of Push Integrated Communications, a marketing company. He directed his debut feature film Odiyan in 2018. Despite mixed reviews, it was a major commercial success at the box office, becoming one of the highest-grossing Malayalam films of all time.
In January 2018, Push Integrated Communications joined with Aeon Infrastructure to launch Push Aeon Consortium, a consortium joining newly formed Push Motion Picture Company and Aeon Entertainment. Together, they aims at investing ₹ 1 billion in production and distribution of films in four South Indian languages in 2018. The consortium also aims at building multiplex theatres in selected cities.

Made in two parts and to be shot in multiple languages including English, filming was planned to start by September 2018 for a release in early 2020. However, upset with the pace at which the film was progressing, M. T. Vasudevan Nair backed out demanding Shrikumar to return the script.

It was scripted by Harikrishnan and produced by Aashirvad Cinemas, released in 2018. Despite mixed reviews, it was a major commercial success at the box office and became one of the highest-grossing Malayalam films of all time.

He created advertisements with Amitabh Bachchan, Mohanlal, Mammootty, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Manju Warrier and many other popular actors. It was the first time that four South Indian actors – Nagarjuna, Shivarajkumar, Prabhu and Dileep – came together for one television commercial shot in four languages, with Mr.Bachchan as the common factor in all the four. The ad shot for Manappuram Finance was made in 12 languages with eight brand ambassadors – Mohanlal, Akshay Kumar, Vikram, Daggubati Venkatesh, Puneeth Rajkumar, Uttam Mohanty, Mithun Chakraborthy and Sachin Khedekar. Of the lot, four were shot by Director Priyadarsan and the rest by Shrikumar. He has also worked with Priyadarsan for the promotional video of the Kerala IPL team, Kochi Tuskers Kerala.
Shrikumar started Push Integrated Communications Pvt Ltd in the year 2000. Mammootty was the Kalyan Jewellers brand ambassador for a campaign about the (BIS) mark in gold jewellery, Shrikumar made the BIS hallmark focus of several other brands within a few years. When the brand began making its mark outside Kerala, Shrikumar shot ads with Prabhu in Tamil Nadu, Akkineni Nagarjuna in Andhra Pradesh and Shiva Rajkumar in Karnataka. The ads about price tag featuring Cochin Haneefa and the ‘Trust’ campaign “Vishwasam Athalle Ellam” series, which was chosen the TV Campaign of the Year at the Retail Jeweller India Awards 2012, got him noticed.
