9 From Brows to Box Office with Film Producer Nisha Parti
This week my guest is BAFTA award winning Film Producer, Nisha Parti, the lady responsible for bringing Harry Potter to the big screen.
In this episode, Nisha tells me all about how she made her mark in not one, but two, highly competitive industries. From working with her sister Vanita Parti, building the beauty empire Blink Brow Bar, to producing the "brownest BBC drama ever made", The Boy with The Top Knot.
Nisha shares the magical moment she discovered J.K. Rowling's manuscript for Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone and why she feels it resonated with so many people. We also discuss diversity in the film industry and the unique ways in which Nisha works to make sure her cast and crew are diverse. I felt inspired hearing all about Nisha's incredible career and her motivation to make British South Asian films that challenge perceptions.
