My Story

I wrote this script while I was a struggling actor. I learned about film making by watching as many films as I could. In 2017, I got the opportunity to go to NYFA (Burbank CA) and took a two month crash course in film making. In 2018, my wife Melinda Dogra received $180,000 from her accident settlement. We decided then to make this film. We poured this and all the savings we had. We don’t even have any funding left for the Trailer, Posters etc. But we are determined to continue our cause to save girls lives and fight for their rights in India.

Director Statement

I don’t know what is the meaning or purpose of life, but after my wife’s near death car accident we decided together we would make our life’s purpose. We chose this subject for India to educate, guide and help them understand that a female can be as successful as a male if they are given love, care and nurturing. Our goal is to save as many lives as we can in India. We also dubbed this film in the Hindi language so that it can be shown all over India, including remote villages.

” I’m Sinner ”

Over ten million female fetuses were aborted in the last two decades after prenatal gender checks in India. Every day there are many female infanticides committed by various methods. Due to this, there is an alarming sex-ratio imbalance between male and females in India. This story is about a father and his family that desperately want to raise a son, but had four daughters instead. It also follows the daughters’ journey as they try to grasp why their father doesn’t love them. Through a series of events, the father realizes his mistakes, recognizes his duty to raise them, and becomes a very proud father.
