Hi there! I am Joe. I was born in Mumbai, India and moved to England with my parents when I was two. I grew up in Cambridge but moved to London when I was twenty-one for a film internship and now work as part of the studio production crew, responsible for organising the tours / activities in the studios.
I was motivated to pursue a career within film after the passing of my Grandfather. He is still well known in the film industry as a Bollywood director. He spent most of his life filming on location and in the studios across India. When I used to visit he would always make time to take me with him, and so growing up I was surrounded by the workings of Bollywood (even if sadly I didn’t begin to appreciate the impact of his work until after he passed).
This inspired me to follow in his footsteps and become a part of this world myself. I am fascinated everyday with this amazing industry. It is far beyond ‘entertainment’ and is an integral part day to day Indian culture and a powerhouse in global film culture.
