He won the National Film Award For Best Choreography at 61st National Film Awards for his work for song "Masthon Ka Jhund" from 2014 movie "Bhaag Milka Bhaag". When Ganesh was 10, his father, a dancer and a choreographer Mr. Gopi, died, which plunged his family into financial crisis and forced Ganesh to give up his studies. He later moved on to Cuttack, Orissa. Then he started learning the art of dancing from his sister. He later assisted famous choreographer Kamalji, until he died. Ganesh started his own dance group at the age of 12, became a choreographer at 19 and worked in his first film, Anaam (1992) at 21. In 2002, he was nominated in Screen Weekly Awards for best choreography for Badi Mushkil song from Lajja (2001).

In 2007 he won Filmfare award for best choreography for the song Beedi from Omkara. Following this, Ganesh decided to make a stand in film direction. His first film Swami (2007), which is also produced and written by him, stars Manoj Bajpai and Juhi Chawla. It does not have any song and dance. The film is about the journey of a man called Swamy (Bajpai) and his wife Radha (Juhi). In 2008, Ganesh Acharya made Money Hai To Honey Hai, a comedy involving a dead man, a will, lots of money and a way. In 2011, he played a villain in the Tamil film Rowthiram. The famous item song Chikni Chameli from 2012 film Agneepath featuring Katrina Kaif was choreographed by Ganesh Acharya.
