Director's Bio

Pulkit is a writer and director with over 5 years of film experience. Because he is not from any film school, Pulkit opted to practically study film and the filmmaking process by getting involved with several projects as an assistant. But he always wanted to be a story teller. With a dream of telling stories, Pulkit came to Mumbai in 2010 and never looked back. Along with assisting, he also managed production for a commercial company in Mumbai. In 2013, Pulkit directed a short film – Bombay 1992. This film was based on the highly controversial topic of India’s 1992 religious riots. The film, appreciated by many, was screened and won in competitive sections of more than a dozen of film festivals around the world. After his successful short, Pulkit started his first feature film, Maroon.
