FullSizeRenderWhen Shekhar Purohit recently launched Talent Next, a talent scouting website, everyone from Karan Johar to Ashutosh Gowariker, Salim Merchant, Sameer Nair and Sameer Pitalwalla were present to support this new venture. Here’s what they said at the launch of the website:

Karan Johar, Filmmaker
Young vibrant youth is always welcomed in our industry. The entire online talent hunt concept is a first in our entertainment industry. This website is going to open a lot of doors for talent which would have otherwise gone unnoticed. This is now just a click away from one on one contact.

Ashutosh Gowariker, Filmmaker
I think this is an outstanding model that is created and it is going to solve many problems which I always thought existed but didn’t know how to solve. The detailing is quite surprising. For casting directors this website will make their work much easier. Mumbai is a hub for casting and if we are looking for a person who is not situated around Mumbai, it makes it difficult to coordinate and call them all the way here and then we had no choice but to lock people who were based in Mumbai itself. So now this website will make things easy for all of us.

Salim Merchant, Musician
As a matter of fact every time I go outside India there is so much of talent out there, especially Indians and Pakistanis who are great musicians and great singers. Many of them want to come to Bollywood, that’s their dream they want to do something in the music industry but who do they connect with? They are fantastic singers and play the sitar too. They don’t speak a word of Hindi but they want to sing. So for them a portal like this is just phenomenal. They don’t need to come to Mumbai and instead just post their audio and video clip. So this portal will solve a lot of problems.

Sameer Nair, Group CEO, Balaji Telefilms
It’s a brilliant idea and I was surprised that nobody has done it yet. It’s really nice and detailed. It’s a great opportunity despite the geographical boundaries and barriers. It has actually opened doors to all talents. There are hundreds of shows and movies and this website will allow people to reach us and vice versa and it will also help us watch auditions online.

Sameer Pitalwalla, Entrepreneur
There is a lot of noise as everybody wants to get cast and it takes a lot of efforts as people keep sending a variety of content from different parts of the world and it gets difficult to choose. So this portal is a good way to filter out selected people.
