Let me introduce you to my new feature film project, Arunoday (Sunrise).
Sunrise, to be shot in Mumbai, stars Adil Hussain (Life of Pi) and Tannishtha Chatterjee (Brick Lane, Hava Aney Dey). It tells the story of Joshi, an embittered Mumbai cop who has been searching for his missing daughter for ten years since she disappeared one day after school. Joshi’s quest is used to reveal the horror of child trafficking and exploitation in India, a taboo subject which nonetheless affects a huge number of the children in the world’s most populous democracy, a country where lives are often cheap.

I am here in Berlin for 3 months researching for my new film project. My partner A is here too working on her new book. This is going to be a new experience working with my 6 month old daughter on my lap :). I just hope the weather is going to be nice at least. I like Berlin a lot and this will be my first long trip here.
