Bio

After completing my MA in English Literature, I worked as a journalist with Indian Express, a Lecturer in Royal College and assisted senior artists and practitioners – Kamal Swaroop, Madhushree Dutta and Chetan Datar. Later I joined the Film and Television Institute of India, Pune as a student of film direction and won two National awards – Special Mention in 2012 and Golden Lotus for Best Direction in 2015 for my short films made in FTII. After graduating I got the Early Career Fellowship from the Tata Institute of Social Sciences, SMCS. Through this fellowship I completed, my first long duration film, a 4-hour video chronicle – Many Months In Mirya.

Currently I work in and around Mumbai and Ratnagiri, on western coastal Maharashtra.
