Kris Alin was drawn to the creative arts fairly early in life. As he says, "Cinema has attracted me from the childhood. I have always had great fascination towards music and art, but having been brought up in a business oriented family, moving professionally towards an artistic field was tough."
Over time the urge to create something of his own became stronger and Kris began writing a few scripts that he thought he would sell to producers. However, later he decided to strike out on his own instead. In order to bring his dreams closer to fruition in a practical sense he acquired a Diploma in Film Studies from the Asian Academy of Film and Television, Noida. As he explains, "though I had less professional experience, there was a powerful urge coming straight from the heart that inspired me to make my directorial debut with Last Breath Beautiful."
Interestingly, Kris has chosen to use the pseudonym Kris Alin as his pen name and screen name, "because I like it that way. I also chose the name because it contains Krishna, Christ, Allah and my original name in it".
Having found making the first film a satisfactory experience, he says he is now sure about his calling in life and will continue to make "more films in the style dictated by my heart and mind".
