Astey Ladies!

So glad that things like this are finally happening. A dream come true. Been working on “Project Bring Abhijit Chowdhury to Drexel” since 2019. I’d invite you all but it’s only for our Westphal Film & TV students. Abhijit, Drexel University’s first Fulbright Scholar-in-Residence, will be screening the first 3 episodes of his (writer-director) hit streaming series Astey Ladies!, known in some Indian markets as Salon de Paris, followed by a Q&A moderated by yours truly.

I first met Abhijit while acting on the set of his film Manbhanjan in 2019 while I was a Fulbright-Nehru Scholar to India.

Welcome, Abhijit

Congratulations, film director Abhijit Chowdhury, on becoming a Fulbright Scholar-in-Residence at Drexel University’s Westphal College of Media Arts & Design in the Department of Cinema & Television starting in September. We couldn’t be happier to be hosting him.
