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.
