My name is Saadia Khan. I am a social entrepreneur and the founder and host of Immigrantly. Immigrantly is a weekly podcast that deconstructs the archaic stereotypes of what it means to be an immigrant, a child of immigrants, a person of color, and everything in between. Each episode brings a fresh perspective on the issues we address. Our conversations are complex, challenging, and oftentimes messy. But I wouldn’t trade the messiness for anything, because what we have created instead is a new, ongoing dialogue full of rich nuances.

Welcome back to Season 7 of Immigrantly. Our today’s guest is Shruti Ganguly. She is an award-winning filmmaker whose work has been featured globally, at festivals like Sundance, Venice, and AFI. Shruti recently launched her own production company honto88 and its clients are just as impressive, including media outlets like MTV. Behind the glitz and the glam is just your neighborly, city girl with intense wonder and drive. Shruti believes in creating art that is brave and purposeful, which shows the strength of women and other minority communities. She is no doubt making a huge wave. Her journey to this present moment is like ours, complicated and far from straight. Check out her story!
