About Rachana Parekh

After acquiring a degree in commerce, Rachana Parekh enrolled in journalism at Xavier’s Institute of Communication, Mumbai. And within no time the Gujju gal was reporting for a weekly suburban newspaper by Mid-Day. But the magic and masti of movies lured her to take up a job that required spending endless hours outside film studios, chasing the earthly celestial bodies and trying to demystify filmmaking with the moviemakers. It’s been over a decade the curly-haired has been passionately reporting and writing about the Hindi film industry. She learnt the ropes of film journalism at Cine Blitz, enhanced her skills at BollywoodLife dot com and, now, is determined to make good use of her experience for www.pandolin.com to create a platform for the little known heroes of the glitzy world. When she isn’t thinking about films, she’s indulging, sometimes overindulging in food, travel, books and people.
