My journey started with becoming a part of a filmmaker's group where I shot my first 7-minute amateur short film as a writer and director and was actively involved in the making of the co-operative Hindi feature film HUMNE JEENA SEEKH LIYA (2007).
I did my post-graduation from the Film and Television Institute of India (FTII) and was selected for a foreign exchange programme between FTII and FAMU in Prague, Czech Republic.
In 2016, my short film as a writer and director, Nagraj In Mumbai, won first prize in a 50-hour filmmaking challenge, India Film Project (IFP). After that, I wrote and directed a 23-minute Hindi short film, Doranga, which was also selected for 3 Indian Film Festivals.
Recently, I creatively contributed to the Malayalam language Indian film Paka, which had its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF).
Currently, I am working on my first feature film, Hiaranyakashipu (The Enemy Father), which was a part of the Script Lab organised by Film-City (Mumbai) along with NFDC (National Film Development Corporation) and pitched at the NFDC Film Bazaar 2021.
I was also selected for the Kyoto Filmmakers Lab masters session 2021-22.
I have currently completed a shoot of the 14-minute Hindi short film THODI SI KHUSHI (A Bit of Happiness).
I have completed Sundance Collab's mobile filmmaking course and Sundance Collab’s Directing-Visual Storytelling program.
I wish to continue my zest for storytelling in the coming future by making feature films, short films, and documentaries as well.
