Filmmaker Guneet Monga is consumed by films and filmmaking and it should come as no surprise that earlier this year she became a member of Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences. We caught up with Monga earlier this year in San Francisco Bay Area to find out how she became a filmmaker and what keeps her motivated and inspired to make films.
In this highlight from our upcoming extended interview we spoke to Monga about the success of The Lunchbox and how Bollywood filmmaker Karan Johar helped market the film in India. The Lunchbox was director Ritesh Batra’s directorial debut. The film was a huge success at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival, and Monga sought Johar’s help in marketing the film in India.
