Suchita Bhhatia @Metaphysical Lab is a filmmaker, Podcaster, and Mental Health Advocate.

Her first feature film KHAPE as a director had its world premiere at the UK ASIAN FILM FESTIVAL (May29th- June 7th 2021)- where it won the Ray of Hope Igniting Flame Commendation award. KHAPE is inspired from the true story of a 9- year- old boy who fights to build a school in his village .


Suchita has directed numerous corporates, commercials and brand films, featuring talents like Anushka Sharma, Manoj Bajpayee, Priyanka Chopra etc…

Currently, her various projects (feature and series) are in different stages of development and release.

Her interests lie in a wide range of subjects from Neuroscience to the subconscious and the difference between how we define things versus how we experience them. She aims at using her varied interests in telling complex and simple stories and hopefully bringing a new perspective to things.

Suchita has also briefly indulged in the luxury of directing a play called Entropy.

Suchita truly endorses the mental health cause and has made a series of short documentaries  with women living, fighting, and thriving with mental health issues that released on a popular short film platform – PROJECT JOY

She does two amazing podcasts, both running in 100 plus episodes: THE ARTISTS(Arts, culture and cinema) that has some amazing guests from Academy nominated to Culture shapers. The podcast has been featured on Apple, Feedspot and Thinkers360

And, as Shakespeare constantly reminds her, “the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune…. ” She is slinging her way to becoming an alchemist:)
