The craft of filmmaking stands essentially on manipulative techniques but finally the made film reflects the filmmaker's mind only, and that is also quite nakedly, no one can hide it. So, I keep myself completely open while making films.

Started creative life with theatre and then shifted to cinema to explore the abstractions in moving image along with sound.
