    nice :). I like the list and the idea of imparting and learning. Though the would have liked if the ratio was a little better than 1:61.

    These special training sessions cannot help these fools from Indian cinema because the talent sucks and the story sucks as well. Ever wonder none of these so called directors or actors can make it in Hollywood "NO TALENT"
