Named after Monica Seles, Tennis was her first love and also where she learnt teamwork, discipline and many other skills that moulded her personality. Monica played professionally in the Junior Circuit but soon was introduced to the beautiful world of filmmaking. She joined Symbiosis school of media studies where she specialised in Audio Visual and started assisting Cinematographers and directors during semester breaks. To start with assisted Binod Pradhan on 2 states after which the chief AD suggested her to be in the direction department.
After getting a direct client for her first commercial as a Director, opportunities started to come in and eventually Monica went to Prague to study cinematography, mostly because she realised that she needed to grow and revise herself.
Monica Sanghani is an experiment filmmaker who strongly believes in the power of films and poetry in a visual form to alter the world. As a filmmaker one holds many responsibilities and the strongest of them is to challenge social stigmas which has always been my purpose.
