CLIENTS

TEAM

IMRAN SHAMSI

Founder, Director and Idea Hunter

College Dropout turned Corporate Slave turned Entrepreneur. Multitasker with singular agenda of finding what works. Works on vacations and takes imaginary trips at work! Loves wordplay and practising witcraft. Accidentally walked 3kms while pitching on the phone!

AKSHIT CHOBISA

Business Director

B.COM, M.COM, MBA – Basically has more degrees than a thermometer! Fits creativity into a budget. Never smokes, drinks or eats non-veg yet manages to be interesting. Doesn’t spend a day without playing a sport, or being one. In-house cameo king.

VIBHAV AMETA

Creative Head

Freelancer tricked into full-time. Manipulates technology to propagate his vision. A hopeless insomniac who experiments when he should be sleeping.

Loves cuts on the edit and knives in real life.

Has risked his life to get an out-of-focus shot!

DEEKSHA TRIPATHI

Writer and Director

Writer turned Costume Stylist turned Writer (for good!). Though she loves contemporary writing, her eye for all things ‘desi’ enables her to paint with words. Chai fuels her conversations that are often about Gulzar and Manto. Got arrested doing a guerilla shoot!

SEEMA MAURYA

Accounts Head

The principal of the office. Bills, Vouchers and Spreadsheets are her Roti, Kapda aur Makaan. Goes through a personality change after a couple of drinks. Part-time accounts consultant to everyone in the office. Knows more about GST than Mr. Modi.

KIYARA HIREMATH

Associate Director and Writer

BMM pass out. Has a great penchant for writing, referencing and research. Wants to try everything before deciding what she specializes in. She actually believes that her jokes are funny. Hardcore Mumbai Indians fan who had to make content for Kolkata Knight Riders.

INZA NAQVI

Associate Director

A Chef at TAJ Hotel who got tired of cooking food and switched to cooking stories. Obsessively talks about Old Hindi films, Urdu poetry, Football and Current Affairs. Loves driving her CNG car around town while boasting about the savings.

SUNNY DIXIT

Production Manager

AD turned Line Producer. Street smart, sweet-faced hustler who can talk his way out of any situation. A vegetarian who craves for chicken dinner in PUBG. You will rarely see him without AirPods. Hung up during a conference call thrice because he couldn’t control his laughter.

KARAN SONI

Motion Graphics Designer

Began working while he was still studying graphics in college. His animations are more expressive than he is. His graphics move more than he does. A man of few words with the most sarcastic silence. Clicks a mandatory selfie at every celeb shoot!

NIRANJAN BHARTI

Associate Director and Illustrator

Dropped out of IIT to pursue filmmaking. Jack of all trades, master of puns. A Skilled Artist who thinks sleeping is a waste of time, often skips meals and walks because he hates traffic. Can solve a Rubik's cube in less than 42 seconds.

GOPAL CHAKRE

Office Controller

One man army and ultimate jugaadist. Carrom champion who also owns the coolest bike in the team that he uses to peddle Hard Drives across the city. Knows where to get the best ‘Shev’ Puri and Vada Pav. Loves dancing to Zingaat – Marathi version ONLY.

AUDITION

Street Hustler

Named after the many people who knock our doors looking for auditions. The

MOODIEST cat EVER! Loves making a grand entrance, which is no lesser than a WWE player. Hates her Whiskas and loves our chicken.
