I am a UK based screenwriter/filmmaker. M introduction to cinema and the passion to become a filmmaker took hold at 8-years-old after seeing Akira Kurosawa’s Seven Samurai. Started out as part of an ongoing and productive screenwriting partnership with my brother Shalinder. Following an unplanned hiatus, I followed up his 2006 award winning short film ‘The Fairy who Stole Eyes’ in 2012 with his second short ‘Faux Départ’, which went on to win the Best One Shot Movie 2012. I was one of the five winners of the Bombay Sapphire Imagination Series Competition with the screenplay ‘THE MRS.’ In 2013, co-wrote and directed the multi-award winning short ‘No Love Lost’ kicking off the 2014 festival campaign with a Cinematic Vision Award at the Amsterdam Film Festival. Entrenched in visual-story-telling, I aspire to make good feature films that travel the globe.
