Known for exploring the wonderful ‘TAMASHA' called love in JAB WE MET, SOCHA NA THA, ROCKSTAR, LOVE AAJ KAL and hailing the girl power in HIGHWAY, Imtiaz has just had an intimate relationship with the digital medium.

The director has made INDIA TOMORROW - a 5-min short film which shows a conversation between a sex worker and her customer, leading to a powerful message of hope. Speaking at the special screening of his short film, Imtiaz is ready to explore the digital medium and is planning a web series.

We might be divided over issues but all our combined dreams, is going to make India tomorrow. And nobody, no matter what he or she does, is below the purview of that. There is no one who can't afford a dream.'
