‘A good beginning of any process paves the way for it’s grand success. AtGulshan Kumar Film & Television Institute of India, every good beginning means inspiration to develop another round of innovative ideas to raise the bench mark created by itself in the previous batches.

The sixth session was formally inaugurated by renowned Sangeet Guru & Music Director Mr Sanjay Vidyarthi from Bollywood in presence of Mr. Hitesh Ralhan, Director, Gulshan Kumar Film & Television Institute of India.
