Nad plays the protagonist, the male lead named- Neel (codename: Alpha), who is a master of disguise, a con artist, when asked about the USP of his role, he comments “Uniqueness of the role is that I get to have 3 disguises with unique characteristics and also speak Hindi, English and some French”

“The core of the story is Indians standing for India” says Nad about the film Alpha Venus which deals with a familiar problem in India at the core i.e. corruption and mixes it with elements of action, adventure, comedy so as to be a complete entertainer. Major chunk of the film is shot at the exquisite locations of Mauritius and India

I hope that with endeavours like Born To Shine, our society starts accepting artforms as a career option soon!”

Rupak Mehta added, “In today’s dynamic world, ideas like BORN TO SHINE are the need of the hour because these young talented minds need a professional setup and mentoring to sustain their art in the longer run. This scholarship and the mentorship program are like a blessing!”
Talents have been revered and celebrated for eons in our culturally rich nation. But, not many have come forward to champion a cause for girls, especially for the ones who show immense promise at an early age. Born To Shine is indeed a harbinger of hope for the aspirants of our society.
