Born and raised in India, Aastha (she/her) has always had a great passion for cinema. She graduated from the University of York in England with a Bachelor of Science Honours in Film and Television Production. Since then, she’s worked on many different formats of content in the UK and India. She has been an assistant director on over half a dozen feature films in India, including the very successful and national award winning Andhadhun by SriramRaghawan, and on projects for studios like Viacom 18, Netflix, RSVP, and Dharma Productions.
Her journey to become India’s first certified intimacy coordinator started while she was designing a workshop for the lead actors on a feature film with intimacy work. Upon realizing that the Indian market did not have a trained expert in the field of intimacy coordination, she jumped at the opportunity to train under IPA in order to learn the trade herself and bring about a revolution in the standards of safety on sets in India. She hopes to share the much-needed knowledge and expertise of intimacy coordination across the different Indian film and television platforms. Aastha’s most recent intimacy coordinator credits include the upcoming projects Cobalt Blue, Penthouse, The Actress, and Elite India for Netflix India.
