He is a master filmmaker of his generation who has successfully connected to audiences in India and worldwide with touching, human stories. Imtiaz Ali now experiments with smaller screens with his short film #IndiaTomorrow.

As part of an initiative to build resonance around a message of positivity and progress for all, this short film explores an unpredictable theme of quasi-role reversal where a sex worker teaches a few stock market lessons to her stockbroker client. It’s core argument is that in #IndiaTomorrow, anyone can bring change and achieve success. The film was presented at the recent India Today Conclave.

With this short, Imtiaz explores a new form of narration- for the Internet. Keen on looking at more ways to make films for this medium, Imtiaz said, “With this short film, I am opening up the doors to the digital world, to conversations with interested people and organizations. I have these powerful, shorter stories that must be told and now can be. That they are on the Internet, makes access easy and gives them longevity. I think web series, short films are exciting forms that hold potential to bring about change in storytelling and entertainment.”
