Mr Rabeehashmi, Registrar, FTII and Mr Milind Damle, Executive Head, CFOL, FTII extended wonderful support in arranging this course. Our course Director Prof Jijoy and his team worked on making the required changes to the course material suitable for people with locomotor disabilities. And he also took sessions and introduced us to fundamentals to acting. It was an honour for the participants to attend his sessions. He invited highly qualified and experienced faculties to take sessions to us. Total 23 candidates were selected for this course from around 90 registrations based on certain essential factors like passion for acting, commitment to attend all the sessions, availability of mandatory technical facilities as advised by FTII and future plans in this field.
