Wift in conversation with Anupama Chopra and Zoya Akhtar

MUMBAI: The name is Chopra, Anupama Chopra. Yes, if you are a movie buff then you know whom we are talking about.

The author, journalist and film critic has written several books on Indian cinema and the latest addition to this long list is ?100 Films To See Before You Die?. With Indian cinema completing hundred years in 2013, it is a perfect guide for cinema enthusiasts.

Wift Mumbai Chapter, a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to providing a dynamic platform to facilitate the exchange of ideas, accelerate the professional development and recognise the achievement of women in film, television and other screen based media, is giving an opportunity to such enthusiasts to have conversation with the author herself.

The event is a networking evening for women who get to interact with other professionals from the industry. ?They get an opportunity to meet Anupama Chopra who has written the book and director Zoya Akhtar. The biggest challenge is to meet the right people. Wift gives them the opportunity through workshops like these with leading industry professionals,? says founder Petrina M D?Rozario.

The organisation aims to have one such event every month. It also has an initiative called SNF (Saturday Night Fever) which is a relaxed evening one Saturday of the month with a theme over vino and cheese!

Unlike some of the other events held by the organsiation which are only for the members, today?s event is open for all but will come with a charge of Rs 300 per head. ?Only to be fair to our members who pay for the events and to pay for the F&B served at the event do we charge people,? clarifies Petrina.

So, on a Friday evening head out to Le Sutra (Khar) to mingle with the industry professionals as well as to get an insight on the biggest churner of entertainment - Bollywood - from 6.30 pm onwards.
