Priya Anand, a Communication and Journalism graduate from the University of Albany, played a journalist in her debut film Leader directed by Sekhar Kammula. She says, “I think journalism, films and all other media go hand-in-hand. I always wanted to get into films and I studied journalism to get to know the technical aspects of production. I also worked as an assistant director for a TV channel.”
Actress Shraddha Das, whose last film was Nagavalli, holds a degree in Mass Media and Journalism. Shraddha feels that her education stands her in good stead in a tinsel world where actresses have a short shelf life. “Journalism is my Plan B. I took up the course after I had joined films as I was interested in it and it is a related field. In the glam world, nothing lasts forever and after my marriage I do not want to do films. I’d love to be an anchor or a news reader.”
