There are ample opportunities for budding actors and technicians in TV, theatre and cinema.

Filmmakers and producers are also on a lookout for new talents in acting and technical departments.

Realizing this problem. actors Shashank Shende, Shantanu Gangane and director Makarand Mane have come together to start a new platform that will bridge the gap between filmmakers and actors. The new academy named Bahurupi Manch, situated in Pune, will have various courses for acting, dancing, music, sound design and photography, and screenplay writing. The acting course is due to begin from February.
