He wants to bring these ideas to the implementation and he says that he is working to get the region into a global stream.

“When I come to Middle East, I get inspired by the beauty and culture but it is has not represented in the cinema globally” he said that it would be a wonderful opportunity to do this and he would be delighted to be a part of such a thing.
