RECOMMENDED BY: Manoj Yadav, lyricist for Piku, says, "Vishal has the ability to create music which will remind a couple of one of the most significant day of their lives. There’s magic in his composition."
On the one hand, you have wedding DJs, and then there is Vishal Punjabi. The Ghanaian filmmaker, who now lives in Mumbai, not only photographs big, fat weddings, but also composes music for them. He’s the man who made guests groove at Anushka -Virat Italian destination wedding. Identifying a market for well-made wedding films, he set up The Wedding Filmer in 2010. Entry into the big league happened when director Ayan Mukherji saw his work and asked him to direct the wedding sequence for Yeh Jawani Hai Dewani, with Deepika Padukone and Ranbir Kapoor. He has also created the opening title sequence for hit web series Made in Heaven by Zoya Akhtar. And now, he’s also giving back. Punjabi is touring the country, holding training seminars in 15 cities on ethical and sustainable filmmaking practices.
