Neeraj Ghaywan is the National Award-winning director of the critically acclaimed Indo-French co-production Masaan. He has previously assisted filmmaker Anurag Kashyap on films like Gangs of Wasseypur 1 & 2 and Ugly. Receiving wide acclaim from critics, mainstream media, and audiences alike, at Cannes Film Festival, Masaan won the FIPRESCI prize in the Un Certain Regard section and the Promising Future prize (Prix de l’avenir), in addition to several other awards and nominations around the world. Neeraj directed the widely popular Vicks commercial #TouchOfCare, which won hearts all over telling the touching story of a transgender woman and activist who came to adopt a young girl whose birth mother died of AIDS. His latest award-winning short, Juice, subtly tackles patriarchy and misogyny in the Indian household.
