Saloni is a more than a triple threat - actor, writer, director and producer (and has discovered even more skills while putting this film together).
Her journey began with a move from Adelaide to Mumbai to work as an AD in Bollywood. She then went on to play the lead role in Girls on Top, a BBC/MTV India joint production. Saloni also featured in ‘Maya’, a short film which was part of the Official Cannes Selection 2013.
When Melbourne was in the throes of one of the longest pandemic lockdowns in the world, Saloni skipped sourdough and created Coconut instead. This is her first film as director, writer, producer - and protagonist.
Saloni strives to be a filmmaker who highlights the stories of women, especially women of colour, and hopes to continue to use her voice to elevate these stories, so that their lived experiences can be shared with the world.
