Evening Shadows

My first film as a producer – Evening Shadows – is a journey of a gay son’s mother, the only person who can transform even the setting sun into a rising one… as much as it draws from my own life, it is more of a hope for the future.

Synopsis

Under the Evening Shadows, truth often plays hide and seek. Set in South India and Mumbai, Evening Shadows is a tender heartwarming story about a mother-son bond that has to withstand the ravages of time, distance and truths.
