     Bhatti goes 'MAD' with film school

Mohali, August 24th 2007

Satirist, comedian, actor and director Jaspal Bhatti has now ventured into something new - a film school near here called MAD, short for Media and Digital Arts.

Bhatti says the filmi keeda, or cinema bug, in him prompted him to set up the film school at Mohali in Punjab, 10 km from here. In typical Bhatti style, the faculty and staff wear T-shirts with the filmi keeda logo inscribed on the back.

He said his film school would offer courses to youngsters on acting, comedy, direction, cinematography, editing, film and television production, animation and radio jockeying.

"We have confidence in certain areas of acting, animation for films, cinematography and filmmaking and want to share this experience with youngsters who want to get into any of these lines for professional reasons. So far there has not been a full-fledged film school of this kind in North India," Bhatti told IANS.

Bhatti had himself shot into prominence with his 'one-of-a-kind' "Nonsense Club" in the early 1980s when he was still doing his engineering degree in the Punjab Engineering College.
