In a recent interview, Sanjay Patel (Writer/Director) and Nicole Paradis-Grindle (Producer) sat down with Wall Street Journal’s, Christopher Farley to chat about their upcoming short film, Sanjay’s Super Team. Along with the interview, three new looks at the film were also revealed showing Sanjay with his father, another look at the Hindu Goddess, Durga, and an additional view of Hanuman.
The interview focused on topics that have previously been discussed (i.e., that it’s a personal story from Patel’s youth and how the film is a culturally rich story that gives viewers “a small appetizer of what another culture is like”, as Patel stated).
It was a pleasure to hear the sincerity in Sanjay’s voice as he told his personal story and expanded on how Nicole and Sanjay came to work together. Watch the video below or click to watch it on the WSJ YouTube page.
