Director Statement

I, being very creative & innovative thought of expanding my creativity further from writing, poetry & painting. Film making I believe is the highest form of creativity and it encompasses all other forms. Also, me being a trainer at heart, I wanted my work to be message driven but entertaining at the same time. This logically led me into making short films & PSAs which are a very apt medium of achieving this target.

I sincerely hope that through my short films & PSAs, I can expand my reach of communicating with the society at large manyfold and much more than I could through my writings & training sessions.
