Author Tahira Kashyap's love for cinema is known by everyone. Besides directing a short film Toffee earlier, she has also directed brother-in-law Aparshakti Khurana's music video Kudiye Ni too. Now, she will once again romance the camera but from the director's point of view.
The prolific author will soon direct a short film called Pinni. The film is a slice of life story which is being produced by Guneet Monga's Sikhya Entertainment. Interestingly, this short film, which stars Neena Gupta in lead roles, will have a complete women's working crew. From the director to production to the camera person, it's going to be only women crew.
Tahira is really excited to be part of this. She says, "I am really excited to direct this film. Not only do we have a very talented crew, the story as well is very interesting. Neena ji is a prolific actor and directing her is going to be a joy. I didn’t realise it till the time someone pointed that it’s mostly a woman crew! And that’s the best part, it should be the new normal. It was such a pleasure working with Guneet Monga, the producer, Neha Parti Matiyani the DOP and Neha Thakkar the creative producer. Lovely energies!”

She further added, “We shot at Ghatkopar in Mumbai, we shot from 27 till 29th. It was a 3 day power packed schedule . Neenaji is a veteran. She has more experience than all of us put together, and she did a fabulous job. So many years of being in front of the camera and yet good roles and scripts excite her as if it’s her first. She is truly honest as an artist and that’s something I want to emulate from her."
