Pearl Open Lab organized by School of Contemporary Media 

When some of the most disruptive Indian film industry voices discussed the future of contemporary Indian cinema - trends driving it, innovations bending it in ways unimagined before and narratives shaking it up. Because there's a (successful) life beyond Bollywood! Anant Mahadevan Mahabanoo Kotwal Kaizad Kotwal Tejas Shah Cyrus Dastur Viveck Vaswani

Between them, they hold accolades like Emmy & National Awards and titles like 'Most Influential Women Around The World' - all with work that straddles commercial - non-conventional balance exemplarily. And having them in conversation with our media students was a master study in unlearning and reimagining Indian cinema for generation next. Engaging yes, eye-opening and thought stirring yes definitely!
