New York: An Indian-origin animator in the US will debut as a director in theatres on November 25 with his short film, a media report said.

Working as an animator with Pixer since 1996, Sanjay Patel made his first project that revolves around Hindu deities who are like avengers, Variety.com news portal reported on Tuesday.


Sanjay’s Super Team, the first Pixar film on Hindu deities and the first Pixar toon by an Indian-origin director, is a short superhero movie that will be attached to Pixer’s another animated film The Good Dinosaur.

Premiered on June 15 at the Annecy International Animated Film Festival in France, the seven-minute short film will be played before The Good Dinosaur when it hits the silver screen.

Patel’s film revolves around a little Hindu boy who prefers cartoons of superheroes while his father wants him to join the morning prayers, the report said.

One day, the boy sees Vishnu, Hanuman and Durga as the avengers who save him from a problem.

While he was researching about the characters of Hindu mythology from the comic books of Amar Chitra Katha (Immortal Picture Tales), he did not actually draw according to them, he said.

Patel said the story of the film is as much about Sanjay’s relationship with his father.

“I was a late bloomer in my parents’ culture,” he said, adding that after working for 10 years at Pixar he discovered Indian art and mythology.

“It helped me understand why my parents said ‘Sita Ram’ when I sneezed,” Patel joked.

Patel has worked as an animator on films like Monsters Inc., Ratatouille, Cars, Monsters University, Toy Story 2 and The Incredibles, and has been a story-boarder on the latter two films.

Phishing attacks targeting organisations rose up considerably during the pandemic.

Phishing attacks targeting organisations rose up considerably during the pandemic, as millions of employees working from home became a prime target for cybercriminals. A large majority (83 per cent) of IT teams in India said the number of phishing emails targeting their employees increased during 2020, according to a report by UK-based cybersecurity firm Sophos on Monday.

"It can be tempting for organisations to see phishing attacks as a relatively low-level threat, but that underestimates their power. Phishing is often the first step in a complex, multi-stage attack. According to Sophos Rapid Response, attackers frequently use phishing emails to trick users into installing malware or sharing credentials that provide access to the corporate network," Sophos' Principal Research Scientist, Chester Wisniewski said in a statement. The findings also reveal that there is a lack of common understanding about the definition of phishing. For instance, 67 per cent of IT teams in India associate phishing with emails that falsely claim to be from a legitimate organisation, and which are usually combined with a threat or request for information.
