WALK THE MEMORY LANE
A bright scholar, I was good at oratory and creative writing. My skills and talents were honed at the school and what chiseled out from that raw, novice amateur is a well known, Writer - Director in theatres and cinemas!
I graduated in English Literature from Kirori Mal College, Delhi, and found inspiration in the works of Woody Allen, Quentin Tarantino, and Patrice Leconte. I am better known by the alias, Victor Acharya. Quite early, during my school days, I learnt that there are two ways to look at life – One is by jest and other by seriousness, and the former not only wins appreciation but also hearts.
My participation and victories at the School level oratory and writing competitions helped me choose my career as a writer. The rungs I climbed at school level, made me gradually come up at the top and carve a niche for myself.
Directing the Movie ‘ Dhoom 3’ , and contributing to the script of the movie Guru, Tashan and Ravaan were certain milestones in my career that have given me the boost to strive for the better.
I am just so thankful for my years at SAJS and I owe it to my alma mater, in all earnestness. Currently, I am busy in back-to-back directorial ventures as well as judging a renowned Tele Show on Zee TV, along with my co-judges, Ayushman Khurana, Parineeti Chopra and Sonali Bendre. I proudly say that my success and my perks are a prestige that I have gained through Seth Anandram Jaipuria School, Kanpur.
