The film starring Swara Bhaskar was Tiwari’s directorial debut
Writer-filmmaker Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari goes down the memory lane as her debut film as a director, Nil Battey Sannata clocks 6 years today. Tiwari used to work in the advertisement industry before she decided to pursue her passion and love for cinema. She made a smashing debut with Nil Battey Sannata, 6 years back and today marks one of the most special dates in her journey which she cherishes for life. The film was loved by the audience and critics alike.
Aswhiny took to her social media and penned a heartfelt note and shared it with her social media family as she cherishes her journey so far. The director wrote, “In 2014 I made a small ad film for Sony KBC called Mubarak ho ladki hui hai. This story came up right after that. I left my comfortable highly paying, globe trotting Advertising job to make this story I believed in. Survived on my gratuity and savings. Not an easy decision when you are top of your game from a working class family, heading an agency and leaving everything to start from the beginning. But I had to fearlessly follow my passion with the over a decade experience I carried along with me. 6 years of #nilbatteysannata Thankyou for the unconditional love even today. Thank-you for making me believe that telling stories that matter does impact lives. Thank-you for the encouragement & for accepting me as a storyteller & constantly believing in me. No matter who you are or where you come from, you have the right to dream. For many more stories to tell. I am because of you. Gratitude.”
The director has recently wrapped the shoot for her web series Faadu. Apart from that Ashwiny is co-producing Varun Dhawan and Janhvi Kapoor starrer Bawaal, apart from co-writting it. She is also co-producing Tarla.
