BlueCat: What aspects of the writing process do you struggle with the most?

SK: Creating multidimensional characters and unique dialog.

BlueCat: What movies do you watch to remind yourself that you love screenwriting?

SK: Avatar and 2012.

BlueCat: What do you feel you do well as a screenwriter?

SK: Science fiction elements.

BlueCat: Do you feel that screenwriting is different in your country than it is in Hollywood? If so, how?

SK: Yes. In my country I think budget is a bigger problem than it is in Hollywood. I also feel most Hollywood films are primarily character driven to their detriment. Lastly, in Indian films comedy elements are compulsory regardless of tone or genre.

BlueCat: What screenplay have you written which you feel most proud of and why?

SK:   The Era Of Mars. I’ve gotten a lot of feedback that the science fiction elements in that script are very vivid.
