I went to La Martiniere Girls College, Lucknow and right from school, I was interested in Art and Images. My interest was furthered during my Masters in Mass Communication at MCRC, Jamia. And it was then that I knew for sure that I wanted to be a Cinematographer.
I started my professional journey as an assistant to Aseem Bajaj on the feature films Golmaal and Teen Patti. And then with Binod Pradhan on the features (Delhi 6 and Puli) and on numerous TVCs.
In 2010, I stopped assisting and started on my own independent journey. I have shot and teamed with amazing directors like Shlok Sharma, Onir and Vikas Chandra to name a few. Some of my projects are listed below.
• DoP for Amazon Prime’s web show Chacha Vidhayak Hain Humare, created by Zakir Khan • DoP – Feature Film Kuchh Bheege Alfaaz, for Director Onir. Produced by Yoodlee Film, SAREGAMA • DoP – Anita Dongre’s Bridal Collection, Fashion Commercial, Directed by Onir • Additional Cinematography on Hansal Mehta’s award winning feature “Shahid” • DoP Shlok Sharma’s award winning Short film “Sujata” • DoP on Tanuj Bhramar’s short fim “Maat” • DoP – Promos for NH7 Bacardi Weekender Music Festival 2011, produced by Babblefish India.
