Parabola Screening Event !

My first ever public screening event ! It was exciting to see the audience appreciating our talent and efforts. I believe its one of the nicest coincidences of my life that Akshat Sharma and I have found each other to work in his project. I had a opportunity to do great things exploring the actor and musician in me.

This event was organized at Annapurna Studios, Hyderabad, where the two films Parabola and Silence involving months of efforts by various artists and technicians were going to be facing the audience for the first time. The films were screened through the day in three shows, attended by public and eminent personalities of film and theater - Amala Akkineni, Rajesh Touchriver, Ram Mohan Holagundi and few others.

Visit this link for snaps from the event:

The screening occasion was graced by chief guests who have been embodiments of finest talent themselves in the South Indian film industry & theater and hearing good things from them and receiving appreciation was a humbling experience for me and has encouraged and motivated me to do more.

Surreal Cinema

Surreal Cinema is a great art form in exploring this strange and simple, beautiful and bizarre world of humans. If not none, may be few pieces would have made it to the screen in this thoughtful and mysterious style in India. Akshat Ajay Sharma an upcoming film-maker made a humble attempt at telling us two of his surreal stories - 'Parabola' and 'Silence' with eye-catching imagery and was kind enough to involve me in various roles in the process of making these films. 

Parabola is a short film written and directed by Akshat Sharma , for which i am contributing to tell the story by doing what i can with the best of my creative skills in acting and composing music. This project presents a good scope of experimentation as is the nature of the subject - Surrealism.

Greatest Honor !

The much sought after 'Oscar Moment' !! With our VFX Supervisor Mr Bill Westenhofer - the person who is responsible for winning the Oscar twice for R&H (Golden Compass & Life of Pi). He has inspired the team of artists at R&H and directed them to create such great imagery through his vision, standing to be the best in the world and yet, so humble that he has spent time with each of the hundreds of artists who have been on the team. It was such an honor to hold the Oscar standing next to Bill himself and a great timeless moment indeed.
