Nalini by Day, Nancy by Night is a 2005 documentary film by filmmaker Sonali Gulati.

This film explores business process outsourcing in India. Told from the perspective of an Indian living in the United States, the film provides us with a glimpse into India’s call centers, where telemarketers acquire American names and accents to service the telephone-support industry of the U.S. The film incorporates animation as a way to build in personal narrative in a doodle-like manner. It also includes live action footage which takes the form of cinema verité and innovatively edited interviews, and archival footage that provides contextual analysis to the socio-political history of globalization and capitalism. The film is a commentary on identity in the new millennium that intersects diaspora with global outsourcing. It was first shown at the 2005 Margaret Mead Film Festival.
