In her words - "Visuals have always fascinated me and I want to tell stories through films. Film has such infinite ways to engage the world and make a change. At the same time, creativity is like a puzzle to me and I enjoy cracking that puzzle. I am very passionate about Direction, much more than other filmmaking disciplines because being a Director I will be the commander of my creative thoughts. I am imaginative about installing of lights in a room, placement of properties and other details, which could embellish the surrounding and offer space. The visual dimension and aesthetics gives me immense satisfaction."
