Director Statement

Seeing environmental and societal issues has always pained me and made me want to do something about it. I chose films to do my part. So, when I heard about the alarming rates at which air pollution was increasing in the capital city (New Delhi) of my own beloved country India in 2019, I knew I had to write about it. Up until that point, it just seemed as another long-term problem we’d deal with later but when it was advised to wear anti-pollution masks even at home, it became very real and very scary. Not just that, 2019 was a year full of incidents related to climate change which made me think about my own life and choices. The kind of the world we’re living in, our contribution to it and how it’s going to affect the present and future generations. That’s how this story was born. It’s a very personal film for me since the lead, Eva, is pretty akin to me. Moreover, now in retrospect, this film hits home even harder, given the catastrophic pandemic we've been dealing with since the past year and a half.
Hence, Imprisoned is a thought provoking film that makes you introspect. My aim is to always make movies that stay with audiences long after it’s over.
