From hobby to job
Jeet Matharru presents his latest project “WOMAN FROM THE EAST” (KUDESSAN).
Jeet Matharru’s passion towards movies made him join the Indian Film Industry at a very early age when most kids of the very same age group are busy in enjoying their carefree, playful youth years. Coming from a non-filmi (movie) background, the starry eyed teenager, smitten by the glitterati and hyper blown dreams of the silver screen started at the basics of filmmaking as an apprentice.
Jeet’s association with the Indian Film Industry dates back to well over than 30 years and during this span he so far has been creatively involved in about 35 feature film projects. In this journey he has professionally interacted with several legends and has been associated with many landmark projects.
His Punjabi ethnicity just adds flavor to his personality, as over all he has a command in English, Hindi, Marathi and can converse in Russian as well. Loves to travel and reading is one of his cerebral past times. Staying connected with people via social electronic media is also one of his favorites.
Apart from being the creative head of two Asian television channels, he has directed close to 500 episodes for television which vary from fiction, non-fiction, religious, music based, interview based, anchor based and many more.
I myself have had the honor of not only meeting him but also interviewing him during his last visit to Ontario – Canada where his (first Punjabi horror movie) Sikka was being showcased at a local film festival, seems to be a genuine person who can easily be termed as a straight talker. One of his desires is to create and make a joint venture (Punjabi movie) representing both Indian and Pakistani Punjab and he thinks such a project might help rejuvenate relations between both countries as he claims a lot isin common amongst us which yet has to be fully narrated.
He currently is involved in the promotion & release of his Hindi feature film targeted for the worldwide audience, WOMAN FROM THE EAST …KUDESSAN.
We wish him best of luck in days to come and our good wishes are always with him.
