"A Nice Indian Boy" to premiere at SXSW 2024!

"A Nice Indian Boy" is set to make its world premiere at SXSW 2024! I had the opportunity to work as the first assistant editor on this film. Additionally, this marks my first credit as an additional editor on a feature film, which is incredibly exciting! Collaborating with editor Stephanie Kaznocha was a fantastic experience, and our entire editorial team was exceptionally solid. I'm truly excited for audiences to see our work!

Self-effacing doctor Naveen Gavaskar meets Jay Kurundkar, a white man adopted by two Indian parents, when Jay takes his picture at the hospital. Despite initial skepticism on Naveen’s part, the two quickly fall in love. Naveen avoids telling his traditional family—parents Megha & Archit and sister Arundhathi—who accepted his sexuality years earlier and are close to him but increasingly don’t know much about his life. Eventually, inevitably, Jay, with no family of his own, has to meet the Gavaskars, who have never met a boyfriend of Naveen's. What follows is the comedic & heartfelt collision between the family, Jay and Naveen, caught between the versions of himself his family and Jay know.
