Gujarat Tech Univ Felicitates Nandita Singgha on her birthday

Everyone is not blessed with a silver spoon, there are only a handful who create their own destiny. Nandita Singgha is definitely one of them who was born on  this planet on 27 th July.
Gujarat Technology University(GTU) as a Technology entrepreneur and Youth Voice Worldwide to motivate the Youth of India .
She was highly appreciated in school in U.S at the age of 5 itself for making a dummy radio station to communicate with her group of friends.Thus at the age of 5 years the spark was ignited within her to make her mark in the field of technology ! It was only at the tender age of 13 when she won the World Debate Competition at Durban and received scholarship of 30,000 US Dollars she convinced the Sponsors 3M (VSD Division) and MOTOROLA Wireless Communication to train her to become a Technology Entrepreneur.She believed that if Michael Dell, Founder of DELL Computers could start his business venture at 14 Years then why not her .
The child prodigy became one of the inventors in the field of Video Conferencing technology in times to come.There was no looking back as she went on to receive various technology awards worldwide including the Best in Marketing Technology solutions.Then she made her mark as an ad filmmaker by doing 430 ads in the Digital Content Sharing space starting from 2005. Trained by inventors, Nandita Singgha rose up to become another inventor but added cloud computing , webcasting, which was ahead of US and JAPAN and even others worldwide.In fact she had advanced 4 years ahead of their technology . She customised Audio 4K to make audio more crisp and this is still not available by any inventor worldwide in the field of Video Conferencing. She focused on customised solutions as per the organisation applications and solutions on their network. Being ahead of time with others in the race she received an award from IDG Media group of magazines worldwide,a US based company for the “BEST IN ENTERPRISE” solutions last year in 2014 in INDIA. Nandita Singgha’s parents who are from creative theatre and direction field wanted her to start movies in English and Hindi and create the same impact . They always wanted her to be in this field but Nandita Singgha believed that she should first focus on preparation and then churn out movies so she parallely started delegating her work to her CEO and CFO along with the company’s expansion plans and started focusing on only launching new products as a technologist and inventor.

The young actor got a chance to catch up with the entire Fukrey crew. Both Fukrey and Bangistan are Excel Entertainment films and hence the same team has worked on the production of both films.

Pulkit has closely worked with them and so this time around the shooting process was more comfortable for him .Infact, Pulkit knew most people by names and they often used to go out to post pack.

It is a young team and the AD’s and other teams are an enthusiastic lot.

 On and off sets they used to discuss sports, food joints and other idle chatter.

 In addition Pulkit’s co-star Ritiesh Deshmukh also has a spontaneous sense of humor.

Bangistan is a quirky film about two blunder terrorists and the fun the team had on sets has got captured and translated on screen

Pulkit shares "Working with excel never feels like work. It's home to me and will always be. Feels great to greet people on the set who actually are your buddies!
