Excited about the Asian premiere of Sindhustan at MAMI, Sapna said: "My documentary started its journey with MAMI's TalkDoc in 2018. This gave a first-time filmmaker like me a chance to speak with the who's who of the international documentary world before embarking on my edit journey. Venice Film Fest 2019: Mick Jagger and Donald Sutherland Blasted on Donald Trump Over Global Climate Change.

"Since my documentary is all about questioning home and the absence of roots nothing gives me more joy than bringing it to sweet home Mumbai on a platform like MAMI. With a wonderful curation of films and an incredible audience and ambience, there is nothing more a filmmaker needs. I am proud to have my Asia Premiere here at home," she added.
