In 1980, Broota exhibited his works in Japan, Bangladesh, Cuba, Iraq and Geneva.

The artist is known for his paintings of muscular male bodies. After painting these bodies, he vigorously scrapes them with the help of a sharp knife, to give them a luminous, almost translucent look. Over the years, he has perfected the technique in which he first applies paint layers of different hues, and then scratches and scrapes away the upper surface of the painting with the help of a sharp knife.

Broota won the National Award presented by the Lalit Kala Akademi in 1980, 81 and then 1984. Since 1984, he has been the head of the department of art in Triveni Kala Sangam, New Delhi.
