It’s usually only actors and singers who have platforms like reality shows where raw talent can be spotted. For the other departments of films making it’s still a struggle to get noticed. To provide a platform for all the aspirants in showbiz, Bollywood actor Suniel Shetty and Mukesh Chhabra, one of the best known names in the casting fraternity, have joined hands to start an online venture called ‘F…the Couch’ (FTC).
Suniel and Mukesh will be looking for actors, singers, dancers, aspiring writers, directors, cinematographers, assistant directors, production designers, choreographers, composers, models, art directors, editors, animators, location hunters and even pets through FTC, which will later get a chance to make a place for themselves in Bollywood.
Speaking about FTC, Mukesh Chabbra says “Not everyone can come to the ‘maaya nagari’ to fulfil their dream. Some may manage coming but sustenance is tough & it hurts the most when the struggle is to no avail.”
On the other hand, Suniel Shetty said, “I decided to step in having seen newcomers often being misled by miscreants. On FTC, technology enabled us to bridge the gap between the job seekers and providers. And we strongly believe that ‘Talent kahin bhi dikhta hai’ and it can be displayed from anywhere in the world.”
