Director Statement

During school days i was involved more into the cultural activities. After writing and directing one sit com play in 9th class i got inclined towards the performing art and eventually cinema. But following the tradition of my rural locality I enrolled to study the science. During my studies at Pune i switched my course to mass media from science.
This field was totally unknown for me. During initial days I had to struggle just to learn English. My photography teacher Mr. Sandeep Dongare was the reason I started thinking critically about filmmaking. After his departure only library and free film screening at NFAI became my source to learn more about cinema. After assisting my seniors i learnt few basics. In 2017 i made my first short film which was rejected due to technical inadequacy. But i continued making films with available budget and resources. Finally this year my documentary got nominated in competitive category at ‘’ Swatantrata ka vigyan filmostav”. Also i got selected as one of "75 Creative minds of tommorow" felicitated at the IFFI 52, 2021. I look forward to embark towards my dream of becoming filmmaker through this initiative.
