Physician finds reward in directing a movie

Troy resident and physician Sarab Neelam, a practicing Sikh, always wanted to make movies.

He became a medical doctor, but he still wanted to be involved in films. When he attended medical school in Toronto, he volunteered to be a production assistant on an Indian film being shot there that featured huge stars from India.

During his residency in Michigan, Neelam met Kurt Luedtke, who wrote the screenplay for the film “Out of Africa,” and Jim Bernstein, then an aspiring writer who at that time taught Shakespeare to U.S. Army recruits. Bernstein, who wrote the screenplay for the film “Renaissance Man,” became a mentor to Neelam.
