One of the most important panels at The Collab was that of Oscar-winning film producer, Guneet Monga who shared her views on the art of generating content with a vision for young Indians.
Speaking at Yuvaa’s Business of Gen Z event, The Collab, the Oscar-winning film producer Guneet Monga remarked, “As a young, brown female producer, I want to make something globally successful; our own Brown Panther instead of a Black Panther.”
On its 5th year anniversary, Yuvaa brought together 150+ industry experts, changemakers, influencers and key opinion leaders like Guneet Monga, Rohini Nilekani, Sameer Nair (Applause Entertainment), Divya Reddy Shah (L’Oreal India), Chandrasekhar Samiappan (YouTube India), S Venkatesh (RPG), Navya Naveli Nanda, Niharika NM, among others, to participate in conversations around Gen-Z issues.
India’s fastest growing Gen Z-driven media, impact and insights organisations launched India’s first business of Gen Z event, The Collab, to mark its 5th anniversary in working for and with Gen Z across online and offline platforms.
Yuvaa also released its first insights report ‘Not All Gen Zs, and had a ‘Gen Z board review’ panel where young folks from various industries came together to talk about both the report and the event.
When asked what are the kind of stories that should be told to and for Gen Zs, Guneet said, “The dream is to tell our stories to the rest of the world, how we talk, how we feel, what we do. We’re constantly trying to break stereotypes through our films. For me it’s really important how women are represented on screen because it impacts us. It becomes a living room or bedroom conversation and affects communities. It is our absolute responsibility on how we show women on screen. Also, one doesn’t have to underline the emotions. If you let the story tell itself, the emotions will travel, they will be felt. As a young, brown female producer, I also want our films to travel globally like Black Panther, Avatar, or Titanic. And on some level I have experienced this with The Lunchbox, which had positive international reception, competing with our superstar films outside of India. There is a possibility of taking our stories to global platforms. We will get there soon.”
