The Showman Back in Action
Director, producer, actor, educationist Subhash Ghai has a new feather in his cap. He is now the Chairman of Media and Entertainment Skill Council of India (MESC). The MESC was founded in 2012 and since then it has been creating a distinct skill set in the Media and Entertainment sector in the country. The man who has made classics like Saudagar and Ram Lakhan, will surely add value to MSEC, which is aiming at creating 11.74 lakhs skilled workforce by 2022. “I believe for a skilled India, major emphasis needs to be put on the quality of trainers provided to the trainees. It is the need of the hour and collaboratively working with the members of MESC for the betterment of the quality of our trainers is top on my priority list,” Ghai said as the new Chairman. On the films front, the filmmaker is joining hands with Rome-based Navala productions to make a biographical drama on the late godman Osho ( Osho, Lord of the Full Moon), also known as Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh. Fuelling his penchant for socially driven subjects, Ghai is back on the sets after a long hiatus, even though he isn’t back to wielding the microphone just yet. Osho, Lord of the Full Moon, which was announced at the Cannes Film Festival this year, will be directed by Italy-based Lakshen Sukameli.
