At Sharda University, students can not only let go of their shackles, but also have the birds of their creativity fly high. Most importantly, the Sharda School of Media, Film and Entertainment (SMFE) provides budding actors and aspiring filmmakers the platform to express their talent, hone their skills and learn to innovate and improvise with the assistance of a world-class Film Studies course. At SMFE, students can also develop their skills to deliver creative projects that can make a positive impact on the media and film industry nationally, as well as internationally. Moreover, with outward exposure, including selection to side roles as background actors for upcoming Bollywood movies like ‘Atrangi Re’, students at SMFE are bound to receive a wholesome education experience in the fields of media and entertainment.

Sharda University welcomes the star cast of ‘Atrangi Re’

Prominent Bollywood director Anand L. Rai has shot parts of his next romantic drama ‘Atrangi Re’, which stars Akshay Kumar, Sara Ali Khan, Dhanush, and Nimrat Kaur, on the campus of Sharda University in Greater Noida, Uttar Pradesh. SMFE welcomed with grandeur the entire cast and crew of ‘Atrangi Re’ to the university campus. Further, Sharda University feels delighted to share that many of its students were selected to play locals and other extra characters in the upcoming film. Certainly, this offered a great learning experience to SMFE students that will further inspire them to do better and bigger.


India’s biggest film city in Noida

Uttar Pradesh’s Greater Noida is all set to get India’s biggest film city soon. And, this is of great significance to Sharda University because there will be more number of learning and professional opportunities at students’ disposal. Recently, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath announced setting up the country’s “biggest” and “most beautiful” film city in Greater Noida. The proposed 1000-acre site in Sector 21 will be developed as the best dedicated infotainment zone of the country. It will have a high capacity, world-class data centre, pre-production and post-production infrastructure, sets, processing labs, and a VFX studio. Notably, it is likely to see its first film shooting by early 2021.

As the proposed Gautam Budh Nagar film city is most likely to become one of the biggest hotspots of Bollywood film shooting activities, the students of Sharda University are set to play a major role in this development. Indisputably, this soon-to-be-opened film city has set high prospects for students at Sharda University’s School of Media, Film and Entertainment.
