Anusha Rizvi

Directors_portrait_kleinBiography
Director and screenwriter Anusha Rizvi was born in 1978. She studied history at St. Stephens College, Delhi, and Human Rights at the Jamia University, Delhi. As she says, I am an accidental filmmaker. I neither trained, nor ever wished to make films before the story of Peepli [Live] came to me in a flash. She worked as a television producer for four years at New Delhi Television (NDTV). Peepli [Live] is her first feature outing as writer and director. Over the last five years, she has helped revive Dastangoi, the dead art form of story-telling in Urdu.
