"Our first production, Darlings got so much love that it was exciting and overwhelming at the same time. And just a little over a year later, we are ready to launch our second production—Jigra, a beautiful story of courage, passion and determination. I hope to consistently support compelling narratives that are authentic, and enduringly timeless and work with brilliant creative minds to bring them alive," she said in an interview.
