Arun A. K.
Corporate Communications professional in Mumbai by the day tries to sneak in time at the workplace to write about movies.
Good food and a good movie are enough to make Arun’s day. He writes short stories once in a blue moon but enjoys writing about movies that excite him on a regular basis. There is no particular genre that he likes the most and has recently developed a fancy for experimental cinema. European art-house cinema and Indian regional films form the bulk of his viewing library but Arun doesn’t mind the occasional indulgence in mainstream/popular cinema to de-stress himself.
