Film Producer Guneet Monga Narrates How Her Mother Fought Patriarchy Every Day In Thread

Guneet Monga’s journey has been nothing but inspiring. The woman who has produced popular Hindi films such as ‘Gangs of Wasseypur’, ‘Masaan’, ‘Pagglait’, etc. had no connections in Bollywood when she arrived. She was an “outsider”, as they call it. Thanks to her networking skills, she built connections and produced work she could be proud of. And today, she is a successful film producer.
