Senior Assistant Editor

Suparna Thombare hates being put in a box unless of course its made from film reels! A cinema lover -- she spent most of her childhood writing lyrics, singing Hindi film songs, reading movie magazines and watching films. So it was natural that after dabbling in news features and music journalism she decided to marry the movies. Sometimes she is also seen bouncing off the walls over rock music or an animation movie or fussing over a poem she is writing or indulging in her other favourite activity - talking! After over 12 years in the media industry, her enthusiasm for film journalism and the online medium is only peaking!
