UNHIDE played to rave reviews at the December 2020 Dance & Music Film Festival.

1. What motivated you to make this film?

The existing environ and the sexual intimidation propelled me to pick up this very important topic. Isn’t this world common for all the sexes.

Less than a month, I guess

3. How would you describe your short film in two words!?

Very relevant

4. What was the biggest obstacle you faced in completing this film?

Creative complexity. A profound topic in a limited time.. since truth is strong and deep, I realized finally time isn’t a factor.

Was happy that the thought had resonated well with them.

Indian music ( diverse), western, blues

10. What is next for you? A new film?

Yes. A feature film that would picturize my present take on the immediate world around me in a aesthetic way with the filmic acumen I have imbibed over the years.
