About the Director
Ritesh Batra created a world sensation in 2013 with his wonderful film, "The Lunchbox", a bittersweet romantic comedy, as well as a sensitive portrait of the city of Mumbai, torn between tradition and progress. Born in Mumbai in 1979 and raised there, Batra moved to New York where he studied cinema. In 2009 his project then titled "Story of Ram" was selected by the Sundance Screenwriters and Directors Lab later to bloom into "Dabba" (The Lunchbox).
