WATCH MY SHOWREEL

Hi, I’m a storyteller from India.

I made my first film at the age of 11 while strolling through the walled city of Old Delhi laden with my father’s Nokia smartphone. That evening while filming the long-withstanding food culture of Delhi, my love for cinema blossomed.

At 23 now - I have written, directed and edited over 50 films: for myself, for brands and for social media.


What cinema means to me is an amalgamation of every human sense. I observe what is happening around me - lending ears to the unheard and feeling the warmth of the world as I taste the truth. I offer a whiff of emotions in everyday life with stories that need to be told.

Who Asks For It?





After a seemingly long day, a woman returns home, and as she finally finds herself in her own space, free to move and express herself at ease, a rumination begins 

It is this account which forms the body of the film, introducing the viewer to the dynamics of dating, from the point of view of the protagonist, in a heteronormative world.

It soon progresses to question the location of women in a society where they are often reduced to simply their appearance.This precedes engagement with the idea of love, relationships, happiness and the manner in which all of them interact with each other to constitute life and existence, while also allowing the film to raise its eventual question that serves as the primary motivation of the plot.
