Kanakavalli’s June Vignette, Archana Kalpathi, discovered a love for film in childhood, but never imagined she would one day make a career in cinema. Now the CEO of AGS Cinemas and Creative Producer of AGS Entertainment, Archana continues to delight in movies—in the way they transport her to other worlds, offer her an escape from reality, and draw her into stories she can find herself in. In this breezy conversation Archana reminisces about her journey, from the mistakes she made and lessons she learnt, to the moments she will never forget. For Archana, work doesn’t feel like work anymore because she has found her passion, a rare and valuable thing.
As you continue to stay home and stay safe, we hope that this conversation and Archana’s picks for films and web series to watch this season of lockdowns offer you a moment of distraction; a brief escape from the uncertainty to inspire hope and positivity.
In the midst of rescheduling projects, managing deadlines and, of course, catching up on the latest films, Archana takes the time to curate a selection of fine saris from the Kanakavalli repertoire. Shop the curation right here and read the entire conversation on the blog.
