Like a lot of Indian kids Smita too wanted to follow in the footsteps of her parents & become a doctor. But a chance discovery of a prospectus for a film course put her onto her real calling in life.
She went on to study film & television production & her final film landed the Satyajit Ray Memorial award at Kshanik, a student film festival in Kolkata.
After assisting various directors on films, television shows & advertisements she went on to make her first independent short film Kaassh (If only..) which was a part of the official section at the Karachi international Film festival in Pakistan & The International short film festival in Detmold, Germany.
From direction she also graduated to writing television shows & also penned dialogues for a Hindi feature film.
Coming from India, the land of diversity, culture & magnificent progress she hopes to tell stories that are unique & global & just like her favorite directors Steven Spielberg & Satyajit Ray she too hopes to be able to capture with equal mastery both the worlds of fantasy & realism where human emotions reign supreme & hopes to tell stories to remember for a lifetime.
