TINA THAKRAR GETS A LESSON IN POSITIVE STORYTELLING AND MAKING MEANINGFUL FILMS FROM TAIRA MALANEY, FILMMAKER AND FOUNDER OF GOA-BASED CREATIVE VIDEO PRODUCTION AGENCY EMAHO FILMS
TINA THAKRAR

There’s also always a connection to nature and wildlife, which is one of her childhood passions, developed as a result of camping trips with family and friends.
