Avani Soni is one of the top casting directors who have set a benchmark in the Gujarati film industry. Her career took a massive jump in almost a decade. Based in Ahmedabad, she started her career at the age of 22 and she is leaving no stone unturned in promoting exceptional artists from the industry.
She has done films like ‘Tamburo’ and ‘Chhutti Jashe Chhakka’ which were the hits among everyone. Before she became a casting director, Avani worked in the corporate sector after which she explored herself beyond doing the monotonous 9 to 5 work. Moreover, she also owns FATC Entertainment which was founded in 2011. With a career of almost 10 years, she has worked with many biggies of the industry. She believes that talent should not be hidden and the world should know about it. Being into the casting process, Soni has also had a tough time in finding the apt people for some particular roles.
The biggest challenge Avni has perhaps faced until now is the fact that many families restricted their children to get into acting thinking about the casting couch. However, at FATC Entertainment, life has been made easy and people are given the right opportunities to try their luck in films and shows. On the professional front, Avani Soni is currently in the news for her upcoming film ‘Love Ni Love Storys’ which is all set to hit the screens on January 31, 2020. When asked about her further plans, she chose to not reveal much and said that she will officially make announcements. Template:Source Wikipedia
