Students at IMI
With a huge responsibility to carry the film legacy of my grand father- legendary Guru Dutt, I joined IMI. Amazing thing about this film school is that it encourages its students to make mistakes and gives them space and time to find their own style. IMI does not dampen student's enthusiasm with rules and technicalities of filmmaking; and yet put them through the rigour and effort needed to learn necessary skills. Today I'm confidently working in the direction team of Anurag Kashyap.
