Students at IMI
I was so lucky to get admission in IMI, as I found it the best school for beginners who want to make a mark in the film industry. It is because of IMI, I could join the Rajshri Productions as an assistant director. Today if I am able to have Mr. Rajkumar Barjatya's faith in me and able to work confidently, all credit must go to IMI's easy to understand and practical approach in imparting professional training in filmmaking which comes handy in day to day professional world.
