Dhreeraj Jindal

Dheeraj Jindal, at a very young age got attached to questions. Questions about the measures of good and bad, the society and its inequalities. Questions that hit the prism of curiosity but got lost in its colors. Not too enthusiastic in academics, he soon got introduced to his favorite quote “travelling is the best way to get educated.”

 He travelled, observed and looked for his answers, and soon a sheer coincidence introduced him to an art of telling stories, filmmaking.

He first entered the film scene around seven years back as an associate director, after his formal training in Masters degree specialized in film making, and very soon he moved on to directing films independently and got a number of social, commercial, corporate and documentary films to his credit, that won awards, and more importantly, hearts of his audience.
