The world’s largest travelling film festival received an overwhelming response in Dehradun and Meerut. In-conversation with Divya Dutta was extremely interactive and filled with anecdotes on how she landed some roles. Inaamulhaq’s Inconversation highlighted how he broke getting type-casted and his journey on his writing and acting roles. An engaging and house-full Masterclass by well-known actor Parul Gulati was organized which witnessed a discussion on why it was worth refusing the roles that she did that allowed her to reach at a higher pedestal today. In-conversation by Mr. Rajesh Tailang in Meerut was a packed audience show and advised aspirant actors to prepare themselves before landing up in Mumbai. You get in action mode & don’t really have time to work on yourself when in Mumbai. India premiere of international award-winning short film Zoya received extremely good response from the audience. In Meerut, Shefali Shah also talked about how the audience was always mature but risk appetite of content creators has increased and edgier content is coming across.
