Ayoob Khan is an Indian film editor who is known for his contribution to Keralite cinema universe. He progressed to the big screen as he became an independent editor for the critically-acclaimed Drishyam starring Mohanlal.

As a result of its success, Drishyam yielded remakes in regional languages. On 22nd September 2013, he got engaged. In 2015, he edited Saaradhi. Once again, Ayoob got united with Jeethu Joseph for the light-hearted project “Life of Josutty.” Dileep played the protagonist’s role in this family entertainer.

In the same year, he was the principal editor of Papanasam, the official Tamil remake of Drishyam. Ayoob contributed his skills to 'Swargathekkal Sundaram' which received a lukewarm response from the movie buffs. In February 2016, Ayoob’s next venture “Hello Namasthe” released to good reviews for its humor. Working with Jeethu for the fourth time, 2016’s much-anticipated film “Oozham" got screened in cinema halls. Superstar Prithviraj plays the character of Surya, a demolition expert aiming for avenging the deaths of his loved ones. Oozham earned 30 crore rupees at the Box-Office. In 2017, he agreed to edit Kamboji, a dance drama which released on 31st March. On 6th May, he took the job in Anzar Khan’s Lakshyam.
