Her schedule shows no sign of slowing down in 2017; current documentary commissions include Earth’s Natural Wonders (BBC1), Hunt for the KGB Killers (C4 / Brian Woods), The Ganges With Sue Perkins (BBC1), and This Woman’s World (BBC).
Nainita is also currently working on two feature film commissions; the BFI psychological horror Darkness Visible (Dir: Neil Biswas, co-creator of Sky 1 drama Lucky Man), and World War 2 thriller Ni’ihau, filming in Pinewood Malaysia.
