Soleil Spotlight

The name behind critically acclaimed film titles like Paan Singh Tomar and Neerja ( both produced by two major production companies Foxstar Studios &  UTV Motion Pictures)   This week from the land of Bollywood, we have with us Rucha Pathak, a multi-faceted Indian film and TV producer commemorating an eventful Women's History Month. In this episode, we're in Mumbai, India ( which produces the largest number of movies in the whole world) for a conversation with Rucha who walked us through her upbringing living everywhere from Nigeria to Ooty,  South India to Toronto, Canada. And takes us through her journey of feeling inspired to create more real story-driven films like critically acclaimed Paan Singh Tomar and Neerja, challenging the same stereotypes of Bollywood, and her desire to see more women in front and behind the scenes of films across the seas.
