I am a filmmaker based in Doha, Qatar.

Born in the remotest village of India, I had to bunk my school and travel around 50 kms to the nearest cinema hall every time I wanted to watch a film. Grown up in a place where watching film is considered nothing less than a sin, I had to travel another 2000 kms to Mumbai to participate and learn film making. After editing many bollywood feature films in the beginning, for last one decade I have been involved in making numerous documentary films.

My main claim to fame are ‘Daughters Of The Brothel’ (a 25 minute documentary film featuring the crisis and revolution in an east indian brothel) and ‘My Sister Laxmi’ (a feature length documentary film following a 12 year stray, Marappa in his expedition to find his lost kid sister Laxmi). I also directed/produced a series called ‘Indian Hospital Revisited’for Aljazeera Network in 2014. My latest has been an investigative documentary called ‘The Burning City’.

While I claim to be a filmmaker, my villagers won’t take it. They will believe only if they can see my films in the nearest cinema hall, which is still 50 kms away and will never show a documentary film!

    1. Thanks Mohammad,

      After this film went on air on Aljazeera, Bangladeshi embassy in india got into action. They took Roma back to Bangladesh. Naseema is in constant touch with her. I am told she has been accepted by her family now. But for any further query or help you can contact Naseema at –
