All eyes are on her next productions, Exclusion, that recreates the real life tragedy of Komagata Maru in 1914 and the adaptation of Shilpi Somaya Gowda’s Secret Daughter for the big screen.
Success Mantra: ‘Honesty for me works.’
Thought Filter: ‘All art is political, it’s not personal. Somehow it reflects on the politics of our time.’
