The post screening discussion with Suketu (Mehta) and the audience was candid, stimulating and insightful. Right from its inception, Between the Lines has been an incredible journey, and I am glad to get so many opportunities to share it. The next CinePlay is at Yale, in New Haven and then in Chicago. For the latter, Subodh will also join me.”
