Shruti was raised in the bursting-at-the-seams cultural explosion that is Mumbai and has been fascinated with stories from the first time her grandmother told her a bedtime story. She explored every possible medium of storytelling: classical dance, theater – on-stage and off-stage, journalism, and marketing before landing on screenwriting and fiction. The film Love Goes Through Your Mind, for which Shruti received a co-writer credit, premiered at the Austin Film Festival 2018, and her short story Invisible Walls was nominated for the Pushcart Prize in 2017. Armed with an MFA in Screenwriting from UCLA and currently working towards an MSt in Creative Writing from Oxford University, Shruti actively works towards telling stories that bridge the gap that divides people.
