V. Shantaram

Mention the word V. Shantaram and cinegoers across the country start thinking of films steeped in Indian culture, stories emanating from Indian values and costumes distinctly traditional. V. Shantaram and his companions were essentially artistes which helped them project Indian culture so well in films. He gave absolute attention to detail and patiently went through the exhausting process of pre-production, rehearsals and workshops, etc. He took no short cuts while preparing for a film which later helped him while shooting as things would almost naturally fall into place.
