Guneet Monga is part of film-maker Anurag Kashyap’s production house, and has always supported the young breed of writer-directors as one of Bollywood’s leading producers. She recalls an incident when she actually sold her house to finance a movie directed by debutante Amit Kumar, three years ago. “I sold my home to produce Monsoon Shootout. It hasn’t released yet. It has a nine-year long journey of raising finance.”

She adds, “I took it to producers, but no one was interested. Then I went ahead and did what was required. It’s the cinema bug which gets to you... I just wanted to put that story out there and that’s all I could think of.”
