We supported this studio where people can enjoy and party here. This is like a social activity and the mall actively supports such people-centric social activities. We had gone to a friend’s place to record and the idea germinated. When we have the necessary space and resources, we decided to take it forward positively. We will add more courses on dancing, singing, choreography, editing etc and will accommodate new ideas. We will focus on training the talent and take help from premier institutes like FTII to groom young talented individuals in Pune. This studio is the celebration of life with the spirit of positivity, love and happiness.”
