Director Statement

In my films, I aim to authentically represent the South Asian community by bringing real issues to the screen and challenging stereotypes. I believe it is crucial to showcase the diversity, depth, and complexity of our experiences, moving beyond the narrow portrayals often seen in mainstream media.

Through my storytelling, I strive to shed light on the multifaceted aspects of South Asian culture, highlighting the triumphs, struggles, and everyday lives of individuals within the community. By delving into real issues, I hope to spark conversations and foster understanding, while creating a more inclusive cinematic landscape.

My films serve as a platform to address social, cultural, and personal challenges faced by South Asians, exploring themes such as identity, family dynamics, societal pressures, and more. By humanizing our narratives and offering nuanced perspectives, I aim to break down stereotypes and dismantle preconceived notions, ultimately contributing to a more accurate and diverse portrayal of our community on screen.

Through my dedication to authentic representation, I aspire to create stories that resonate deeply with audiences, evoking empathy, sparking dialogue, and inspiring positive change. By amplifying underrepresented voices and showcasing the richness of our culture, I hope to contribute to a greater understanding and appreciation of the South Asian community in the realm of filmmaking.
