 “The general awareness and media coverage about animation get the job done is fewer, and unlike  the  rest  of  the  entire world,  animation  is  dealt with as  kids’  movies  in  India. I nonetheless have a tough time convincing  half  of  my family  that  I  make films for a residing and I  have credit rating for doing work in  10 critically  and  commercially  acclaimed Hollywood movies”.
