The award-winning director has another interesting project in the pipeline, titled Nabhamsi. Majorly shot in the US, the Sanskrit language film showcases the different dance forms and the cultures that prevailed a thousand years ago in India.

The conversations and the dialogues in Nabhamsi will be in Sanskrit and English. The director says he could narrate the story with deeper emotions and since the subject is universal, he is confident that the film would catch the attention of wider audiences cutting across regions and culture.
