He wanted to be a novelist, but Sudhir Mishra became a filmmaker instead. These days, he’s anchoring Master Class series for the FOX History and Entertainment Channel.

“I talk to some of the best filmmakers and look at their craft, inspiration and vision on the show and record it for prosperity,” he says. Danny Boyle, Shyam Benegal, Ramesh Sippy, Mira Nair and Shekhar Kapur are a few people Mishra has interviewed.

“I enjoyed them all. Mira Nair is a good friend. I admire Shyam Benegal; Ramesh Sippy is a great filmmaker. They are the masters of cinema,” he says.
