Casting in Mumbai

Under the wings of dedicated Arshiya in the Mumbai Studio, casting for short films, features and ads is picking up. If you’re a BJAS grad and looking for work, we get (or seek!) requests for actors of all genders, ages and “types” – so drop by the Studio or email us photos and and updated CV, and we’ll add you to the hot list.

Our new web site will be up soon, and we’re posting as many working grads as we can – with a short bio and a good pic. If you’ve acted in anything, let Arshiya know and we’ll slap your face and story on the Internet.

Our Summer Kids Workshops in Delhi NCR has opened.
