How Oscar-awardee Guneet Monga raised money

Friday, March 15, 2019

The Oscar win for Guneet Monga is evidently a validation of her years of hard work gone into backing films she believed in by raising money through social media to selling her only house.

Though she received the Academy Award for her documentary short "Period. End of sentence", Guneet has also been associated with critically-acclaimed films like "The Lunchbox", "Masaan" and "Haraamkhor". "For every film, we have raised money individually. Our process is almost like 'kar guzarne wala' (passionate). We raised money on Facebook and made 'Peddlers' and 'Haraamkhor' under Rs 1.5 crore because one could not get money by raising funds in traditional manner here.

"One raised money from France for 'The Lunchbox' and ended up raising some equity here. For 'Monsoon Shootout', I sold my house, the only house I had. It's a bit crazy story," Guneet said.

The gritty Guneet also said each project comes with its own challenge and she has learnt a lot over the years.
