About me
British Indian producer, director and screenwriter, interested in developing meaningful stories that have the potential to make a cultural impact on society. A bit of background about me: I was born and raised in London, to a working-class family of Indian immigrants. My grandfather, a Hindu priest, moved from India to live and work in Tanzania, before finally settling in the UK. I was raised in a very cultural yet moderately religious household; spoke Punjabi at home, English at school and Hindi when visiting relatives in India. In 2012, I graduated with a BA Honours Degree in Animation Production, from Ravensbourne University. I moved to India soon after that, developing experience as a runner and assistant director, in Bollywood. Whilst there, I produced my first short film, 'A Letter from my Father', which gave me the opportunity to attend the Cannes Film Festival. Since then, I worked as a videographer in a full-time permanent and freelance capacity. However, I wasn't creatively satisfied in this very technical focused role, so I decided to move forward as a producer and director with the intention to develop exciting projects, build solid teams, and tell meaningful stories. www.abs.london

  • Black Lives Matter Protest in London
    I marched at the Black Lives Matter protests in London in response to the death of George Floyd. I wanted to experience the event in person and to get an accurate picture of what this movement was about. Whilst I was there, I became aware of many other cases of racial injustice, for example: Belly Mujinga, Shukri Abdi, Ahmaud Arbery and many others. Here are some photos I'd like to share of the event.
