Early life and education
Natashja Rathore was born in Singapore to Vipulroy Rathod and Purnima Rathod. She spent the formative years of her life in Mumbai and did her schooling at BD Somani International School. She graduated from The Puttnam School of film, LASALLE College of the Arts, Singapore with a BA Hons. in Filmmaking with a major in directing (non-fiction) in 2012 and moved to London in 2013 to pursue an MA Filmmaking at London Film School from where she graduated in 2016.
Over the span of her academic career, Rathore directed and crewed on several short films that have made it to prestigious festivals. Her first documentary was Marionette Song, her graduation project at LASALLE. The film, currently distributed through the short film website Viddsee, is a short poetic documentary that observes and perceives the fate of Singaporeans caught up in the ceaseless rat race of urbanization.
In 2016, Rathore made a documentary on the iconic Indian film Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge in collaboration with Yash Raj Films. The project involved crew members from various nationalities and gathered a huge following of Shahrukh Khan fans from all corners of the world pledging their support. The film premiered at the 9th Annual Jaipur International Film Festival in 2017.
In late 2016, Rathore teamed up with renowned social activist and theatre personality Smita Bharti to create socially relevant communication through the medium of theatre, film, television, poetry, workshops and campaigns that strive to reach deep seated attitudes within cultural contexts in order to trigger social and behavioural change. She has produced two plays, Amavas Se Amaltas  and the national award winning play, Jug Jug Jiyo.
