Abrid Shine is a well known Indian Fashion Photographer and director, from Kerela. Photography has always been his interest, even when he was doing Bachelor of Commerce, at Thalayolaparambu a place in Kerala. He is a huge fan of cricket and an admirer of the legendry cricketer Sachin Tendulkar. He has keen interest in cricket and always keeps himself updated with anything happening related to cricket. He was doing wedding photography in Poothotta and was completing college at the same time. Once he graduated, he became more involved in Photography, and made himself professionally busy.

He started working in a publication at Kochi and planned that it would be his permanent income driver. While he was working for a women’s publication, he assisted Lal Jose for an ensemble film, Kerela Cafe. Abrid expressed his deep intentions to make a film, Lal Jose differentiated him the advantages and risks he was thinking about. He mentioned his friend ‘Martin’ is his inspiration and how slowly he turned into a filmmaker, who gave ABCD. Abrid also has a son named Bhagath Abrid.

He gave up his job in 2011 and created himself a space from all the distractions. He penned the script ‘ 1983’ from his known version for the love of cricket. The story was so much related to his life, and he could only match it with his language of cameras to express it better. When the writing part was over, it came to life with the acting of Nivin Pauly. The story is about a boy, who understands the basic of cricket when he was studying in fourth grade, and his dream progresses with the battles of life increasing by the years. The young boy’s role was played by his son.

The director says with a touch of emotion that, every achiever in the sports had someone who had given up something for that person to come to that phase. He won ‘Best Debut Director’ in ‘Kerala State Awards’ and ‘ SIIMA Awards’ for the movie. This year his second movie, ‘ Action Hero Biju’ essayed by Nivin Pauly was released and had a good response. The flick was pushed into box office collection from the second week after it went public. After this film, he is working on scripting a college story and cast which is yet to be finalized.
