Director Statement

Since my childhood days I’ve been interested in cinema and somehow I found myself in it. I think it is simply because it’s the most attractive way of telling a story. I’ve worked on various short films, stories written by me.

. ” A natural component of filmmaking is to struggle to find money. It will be an uphill battle for my entire working life”

I said this quote because it simply describes every independent filmmaker’s problems those who want to bring a pure art.
