By introducing them to industry experts and offering them the opportunity to upskill themselves, the initiative gives them recognition in their respective industries, worldwide.”

“BAFTA Breakthrough India is a unique, ‘breakthrough’ opportunity for practitioners of the screen arts to be supported by the world-renowned organisation," said acclaimed actor Ratna Pathak Shah. "I am elated to be working with a programme that will help amplify our country’s brilliant new voices and emerging talent across genres in television, and offer them learning, networking and growth opportunities on a global level.”
