    Before setting off for a career in film making please evaluate yourself if you have that creative ability (natural flair) in you and sufficient strength to sustain loss and if you are mentally prepared to accept rejection the masses.

    Hi Arun,
    Film making is a very creative domain and needs a lot of patience, creativity and funds. In order to become a good film maker you have to understand the viewer choice as in which sort of movies are like by the them.

    Hi Arun,
    Supporting to what Mr. Nikhlesh Mathur has rightly said! I would also say that before entering the Media world you need to prepare yourself for the pros n cons.
