+++ In addition to this Feature Film Screenplay Workshop, we are also organizing a special new batch of our 3-month Film & TV Script + Direction Course on Sundays in Andheri (W) designed by Rajashree..This certificate course is very popular because of the great teachers (National & Filmfare Award-Winners), the reasonable fees (Rs 14,900, all-inclusive) and the students getting a lot of hands-on practical experience, including making a short film. Many student films made as a part of this course have been screened at the prestigious International Film Festival of India, Goa.

*** "Fulfill your celluloid dreams, every Sunday... Did you harbour a dream of becoming a filmmaker, but end up pursuing an entirely different profession? Are you one of those who buried their dreams, while trying to realise more pressing responsibilities? There might be good news in store, for such readers... sign up for a Sundays-only course conducted by National Award-winning filmmaker, Rajashree." - MID DAY, Mumbai Newspaper ***
*** “Rajashree taught me how to create 3-dimensional characters, structure the plot, and direct actors, which helped me tremendously when I was writing and directing my movie.” Rakesh Mehta, Rajashree’s ex-student, whose debut feature film, ‘Khuda Kushi’ has won 3 international awards. ***
*** ""To me, Rajashree is like the energy drink Red Bull! She motivates you to spring into action and pushes you to deliver beyond your limits. Without her encouragement, I dont think I would have been able to transform my idea into a screenplay. And with her encouragement came the right dose of constructive criticism. Also, it was of great help to share and brainstorm ideas in the presence of other students and see where your idea stands. It is a relief to see so many people sailing in the same boat as you are and trying to get better and getting there. I was actually groping in the dark when Rajashree came as a ray of hope..." - Priya Saraiya, Rajashree's ex-student. ***
*** "This programme gave me the mechanics of writing for features, along with the confidence. But what Rajashree really did was crack the whip, pushing us constantly to keep writing and keep exploring. The lively discussions were the best part of this programme." - Satish Desa, Rajashree's ex-student. ***
*** "The next best thing to a course at FTII." - Bharati Hemmady, Rajashree's ex-student. ***
