Director Biography - Aakansksha Nimonkar

Every woman can become an inspiration for other women. And that is what Aakanksha set out to do, by telling real stories of a woman's strength. Her stories are inspired from societal issues and the films her production house Art & Soul Entertainment makes, become her mouthpiece to send across a message. Her critically acclaimed short film ‘Main Tamanna’ that went on to make a strong statement about child abuse is one such film. The idea for the film came about after Aakansha interacted with a woman who was a victim of sexual abuse as a child. And this woman, unlike a thousand others, raised a voice against it. Aakanksha wanted to bring her inspiring story to every woman. Child abuse is a crime that conveniently goes unreported and more often than not, the perpetrators are family members. Main Tamanna brought this issue at the forefront. The film has already received over 3 lakh views on YouTube and has been awarded by the Bangalore Film Festival. It has been screened at Film Festivals in India and abroad, winning applauds all over because of its honesty towards the subject. But Aakanksha believes that this is just the beginning of her journey. She’s taking ahead her task of inspiring women with her next project ‘Dancing Doll –When Darkness Follows Light’, written and directed by her. This film too has been inspired from a true story about a woman and her fight with a bad relationship
