Learn how directors land themselves the best actors for their films

Most aspiring actors who come to Mumbai with dreams to make it big in Bollywood, get disappointed when they don't manage to bag a role in a film. At White Wall Screenings (WWS), we wanted to throw open a discussion, where upcoming actors understand the process of filmmaking from scratch," says Pratik Rajen Kothari, filmmaker-actor and co-founder of WWS. While WWS usually organises film screenings, they are now expanding their portfolio by hosting a series of insightful sessions led by those in the movie business.

In a new masterclass, casting director Paragg Mehta will discuss how a casting director identifies talent and works creatively along with the director to choose the best people for the best part. "He will also talk about how the role of the casting director has evolved and become so significant in the last couple of years," says Kothari, adding, "As moderator of the event, I'm most excited to find out how many people are considering a future in the casting business."
