FILM Experience :
I do not have any formal training or a degree on film making. Watching different human beings in different environments, conditions, and situations has been a lifetime interest and probably attributed to the itch to make a film. My upbringing in an musical environment helped me developing an individual with sense of music along with literature and Acting. Cinema is the medium where I can amalgamate all three. The habit of watching world cinema has slowly given birth the passion of making cinema in an anticipation of telling my stories to the world .
