6 IIT Engineers in BollyWood.

6 IIT Engineers in BollyWood.

 

This is my second turn on IIT (Indian institute of technology ), India’s most reputed technical institute run by central government. My first post  (Quick facts about IIT) got few negative reviews from my readers. So here i am with a new post again about IIT to improve my reputation. Well, Its true that Students passing out from this prestigious institutes ventured into many business establishments and successfully hoisted victory flag. But i never heard any one telling about IIT ians contribution in worlds second biggest film industry Bollywood.You are   surprised about relating technical professionals to entertainment industry right?..But much to my excitement i found few IITians working in Bollywood. .”Eureka i found it”.

 

This is the second time i am writing about Bollywood. The reviews about my first blog post “50 SHOCKING DIVORCES  IN BOLLWYOOD” really boosted my confidence and helped to come again with the topic Bollywood.

 

Ok well I believe IITian entry is purely path breaking and their intelligent technical skill set contribution , definitely gonna up lift the boll wood industry to next level sure.In a time where Hollywood directors spending 5 to 6 years to research and investing billions for technical perfection ,the demand for technical experts into this domain is ever increasing.

Recently i wrote an article about  “27 Engineering graduates in kerala cinema” in India’s most literate state Kerala.I was so happy to see over whelming replies for it.Even though the list here is less.What makes it unique is the brand name value of IIT.
