Director Biography - Rishiraj Agarwal

Born in the pink city of Jaipur (Rajasthan, India) I always had an urge to see and do things in a different way. The interest in numbers, drawing, graphics and paper-craft soon let me choose Architecture as my career. After practicing it for an year, I felt that its not enough for me. Somewhere I felt the need for something more.
Studying Architecture has broadened my imagination and induced a design based approach in me, while studying film goes deeper. It has been a self-reflective and emotional journey till now, which has influenced my way of thinking and living to a certain extent. I believe that film-making in its true form is nothing but a reflection of your own soul.
