Casting Director & Acting Coach
Mukesh Chhabra is at the forefront of a new breed of casting directors in India. After training for two years to understand the craft of acting from Sriram Center (receiving a diploma in Acting), and seven plus years in Delhi teaching for NGOs and children with Theater In Education (TIE) in tandem with the National School of Drama, he joined the film industry in Mumbai in 2007.
After assisting several film crews with the job of casting, Mukesh made a name for himself as a casting director with films like Chillar Party, Kai Po Che, Haider, Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Gangs of Wasseypur, Dangal and so on. Today, the biggest names in the industry like Anurag Kashyap, Vishal Bhardwaj, Aamir Khan, and AR Rahman all choose MCCC for their casting needs. Smaller-budget filmmakers whose films target the festival circuit also rely on his unique talent to find them the correct ensemble cast. Mukesh and his team pride themselves in bringing the same attention to detail to all projects in their care.
In recognition of his outstanding work he has been made a member of the Casting Association of America (CSA).
