Shraiyash is a dynamic professional with a Level 7 MBA, who seamlessly blends his passion into 9-to-5. As someone who enjoys exploring the world through various lenses of life, Shraiyash truly embraces the vibrant tapestry of being Desi. As a culture that strives to celebrate life, what’s the other best way of reliving it through our movies. He believes, a film with a gush of emotions, lots of drama and typical shadi songs can brighten anyone’s dull day. He is a huge admirer and fanatic of parallel cinema and art films especially from the 70-80s India. He believes the big screen has immense power to change the world but it all starts with one viewer at a time.
