Chani, is aimed at exposing our students to the personal gains and experiences of renowned film makers, said Dr Gurmeet Maan, HoD of Journalism and Mass Communication. This is the second such workshop in a row as earlier one-week workshop on Film Production was conducted by another noted film maker, Mr Utpal Chowdhry two months back, he said.
