MOVIE PODCAST - Dhruv Jani PODCAST - June 18th 2009
Primarily a prose writer, Dhruv Jani was asked to co-write Knuckleball by Thomas Marchese (the two met and became friends while working as Customer Service Representatives at Bell ExpressVu), and to bring authenticity and dimension to the screenplay’s Indian content. Dhruv was delighted by the concept of portraying Toronto’s Indian community in a realistic and alternative manner.
Like the protagonist of Knuckleball, he is currently juggling the existential conundrums of the artistic Indian by working full-time in a corporate job by day, and attending the Film Studies program at Ryerson University nocturnally.
Dhruv has been writing from an early age and had a short story, Morning in South London, inspired by an actual terrorist attack in London, England, published in the Seneca College Anthology of 2003.
