I am also one of the first few to have shot a VR (virtual reality) short film in an Indo-British collaboration.
I love playing with light and images and try to tell a story with my craft. After all, I deal with one of the world’s most glamorous tricks of the eye. Apart than that, I like to enjoy life and have fun. Take in all that life has to offer. I’m also a trained classical dancer and I paint. I like reading books, contemplating about random things and having a good time when I’m not busy with work.
Cinema is something I love and I want to spend the rest of my life with this ; getting closer; making it more intimate.
