FilmInstituteEventsYeh Ballet, now streaming on Netflix, is based on a true story of two men pursuing their ballet dreams. Directed by Sooni Taraporevala, the film is already making waves for its raw portrayal of dance, ballet and ambition.
Based on the lives of two ballet dancers, Manish Chauhan and Amiruddin Shah, it is a fictionalised version of their struggle in mastering a dance form that wasn't accepted by their families. The story of these two dancers came to light when Sooni Taraporevala shot a documentary on them back in 2017. And three years later, she recreated the magic of their story on Netflix.

Director Sooni Taraporevala also added: "We’ve all been very gratified by the response to Yeh Ballet which seems to have connected with people who have been moved as well as entertained. You know I’m sure that our time at Abbey Road was the unexpected highlight of this film. I never in my wildest screenwriter dreams would have imagined that."
