RJ NUDE (Chitraa) 30X40 B Small.jpg

'Nude' is the journey of a single mother. Like any mother, she too dreams big for her only son. She determined to do anything to see him as an educated and successful person in life.

'Nude' is about the mental turmoil of Yamuna, who starts to think of being a nude model is not just a job; she realizes that she is an integral part of the art school, she is the one to help the students, to guide them to understand the anatomy of a female body.

The only available option for Yamuna to see her son well human being in life is by shedding her inhibitions and her clothes to become a 'Nude model' for the art students. Fearing the society, she keeps her profession a secret.
