Unluclass, the edtech arm of Unlu, a Gurugram-based celebrity and fan engagement platform, on Wednesday, announced the launch of its new class led by Shashank Khaitan, Indian film writer, director, former actor and recently turned producer, widely known for his work in Hindi cinema.
The course is tailored by Khaitan himself to help learners find direction whether they are industry-working directors or aiming to pursue a career in filmmaking – backed by his own personal experience like how his twentieth script ‘Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania’ attained success. According to Khaitan, his unluclass warrants practical learning and not lesser than an internship for the learners.

“I’m so excited to share my Unluclass with every friend out there who wishes to create their spot in Direction.
