Description

‘Shinjyuu’ means lover’s suicide.

The texts on the lovers’ skin are quotes from a report on suicide chatrooms found on the internet.

They read ‘I feel the same as you’ and ‘Goodbye forever’.

Equally at home choreographing a big commercial set as he is traveling around Pakistan with Imran Khan, has revealed in adapting his work as the industry has changed although his stylistic swagger has remained constant. His work has won several awards, including three Cannes Lions, and still makes time for personal projects too.
