Matteo: Hey Ajay!

Ajay: Hello Matteo!

M: You have a studio inside a movie theater, how did this happen?

A: I have my studio inside of an art deco theatre called Regal Cinema. This cinema opened around 1933 and was probably the only air-conditioned cinema of its time in Asia. My earlier studio was in a film studio called Famous Studio and then under a flyover in Mahalaxmi. Let’s just say that I seem to find these interesting places. I was lucky to have found this space through a friend and jumped at this opportunity. The fact that Regal is the original downtown of Mumbai, I love that there is a charm to building and places around here.
