with Swayam Khanna
Filmmaking: Lights. Camera. Action.
Swayam is an aspiring filmmaker with a vision of bending the notions of mainstream/commercial works to bring out the actual power of cinema by subconsciously allowing ideas to percolate and using the power of the medium to entertain as well as educate, especially Indian society at large.
Swayam is not a stranger to the show. He’s been part of 3 episodes now where we’ve discussed two tv shows – Normal People and I Know This Much is True – as well as a documentary on Netflix called the Social Dilemma.
In this episode we talk about Swayam, his filmmaking journey, his passion for films, and how he got into working on them as well as his recent projects – Mom, a crime thriller starring Sri Devi which is now on Netflix, Aarya –an Indian crime series on Disney Plus Hotstar that stars Sushmita Sen and Mirzapur – which needs no introduction.
In Part 2 of Filmmaking, we continue from where we left off. Enjoy!
