Referees


I have known Rajesh Rajilal for a few years now. I first met him when he was selling computers at a shop. His incredible knowledge and willingness to educate me into the complex world of computers led me to recommend him to everyone I know. I soon found that most of the stars from Bollywood were constantly calling Raj to help them out. Even world-class composers like A R Rahman would not purchase a single piece of equipment without consulting Raj first. Since then I have worked with Raj in the edit department of my new film Golden Age. He is quick to pick up things, works extremely hard, and does not differentiate between night and day. He is one of the most willing workers I know. I can call him in the middle of the night and he will be there with a big warm smile on his face.
If I was going into producing another film in the UK, I would certainly like to have people I can trust like Raj by my side.
