This also positions her in a unique place to bring a sensitive, profound and insightful point of view towards many socio-cultural constructs in the country. Having served in this industry for nearly 18 years now, Deepmala has experimented with various non-fiction films on different subjects, catering to a plethora of clientele, ranging from corporate to government to developmental sector.
She started her journey in fiction films with a 2017 release ‘Ek Koshish’ which was recognized at New Delhi Film Festival. This added fuel to her fire for fiction films, and led to the writing of another short film, ‘Ek Jhalak (A Glimpse)’.
Featuring the versatile and popular Bollywood Actor Amit Sadh in the lead role along with the veteran actor, Sushma Seth and narrated by the talented actor, Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub, Ek Jhalak (A Glimpse) is one of those rare Indian films which feature a trans woman on screen and talks about love and relationships in today’s India.
As a writer and director Deepmala believes in telling stories which have never been told before. As a female director, she also wants to tell the stories of women from a new perspective, which does not see the light of the day usually. Bringing her own unique voice to these stories, Deepmala believes in taking the road less travelled. She also maintains that her journey has just started, “Picture abhi baaki hai, mere Dost!”
