"Stories are what make us. They have the power to shape our lives and change our narratives. Stories can invoke inspiration, build bridges and shift consciousness.
At Tiger Baby, we tell stories.
Helmed by Zoya Akhtar and Reema Kagti, our film studio aims to create content that addresses our social context and transports our viewers into another persons reality. We strive to constantly stay alive to what surrounds us and effectively retell the stories that moved us."
