Beenu Rajpoot

Beenu Rajpoot (Hindi: बीनू राजपूत) is an award winning documentary film maker who received multiple awards for her films. BeenuRajpoot's few notable films are "Born to Dance", "Kaba-e-Hindostan", "Wall of Valour", "BhaktBhagwat" and "LAMA MANI". Her story is an inspiration for aspiring filmmakers, especially women, demonstrating the power of perseverance and the impact storytelling can have on society.

 

Beenu Rajpoot, a name rapidly gaining recognition in the Indian film industry, is not your typical filmmaker. Breaking away from conventional narratives, she weaves stories that challenge societal norms and celebrate the strength of the human spirit. Her journey, marked by resilience and unwavering passion, is an inspiration to aspiring storytellers. BeenuRajpoot's career is on an upward trajectory. With her unique storytelling voice and unwavering commitment to social change, she is poised to become a major force in Indian cinema.

 

Beenu Rajpoot was born and brought up in a small town in Punjab. She hails from a small village in Punjab, where pursuing career in filmmaking was not a common practice. Furthermore, at the time, her family and society found it difficult to understand her career choices. Today, she is an established filmmaker and has made more than 40 documentary films. Since childhood, she has been passionate about films. She used to watch "Lekhu" and "Udaan" regularly and tried to learn filmmaking and composition techniques like an excited kid.

 

Beenu Rajpoot shared with us her experience and everything about RDC – the moment of pride. The basic objective of the Republic Day Camp is to inculcate the spirit of patriotism, discipline, and leadership qualities among the cadets. She shared with us her life's success mantra. "She learned about 3D's in her life when she attended the Republic Camp in college," she said. Discipline, dedication, and determination are the core of a successful life. We all want to be successful. The word has a simple meaning: determination. It refers to the capacity to persist in a task, regardless of its complexity. Dedication: the quality of commitment to a task is critical. A single-minded focus on the target is our ultimate goal. Let nothing interfere with or divert your attention or focus. Discipline: One must train oneself to exercise self-control in setting and adhering to rules. 

 

Beenu Rajpoot's life changed completely when she participated in the Republic Day Camp in 1996. She won many awards there, and this boosted her confidence further. Till now, she has been living a disciplined life. There are six months of rigorous training in this camp. Where, she learned so many things that could not have been possible elsewhere. When they selected as the ‘Best Turnout’ of the Camp and later the ‘Best Cadet’ of Punjab, she was ecstatic. Beenu was filled with pride when she received an award from His Excellency the Governor of Punjab Lt. Gen. BKN Chhibber on 16th July in 1997.  She also received the National Award (Gold Medal) in Aeromodelling at the 1994 National Level VSC for Control Line Speed.

 

Today, BeenuRajpoot is a highly respected documentary filmmaker in Indian cinema. She has won many awards for her documentary films. Most of her films are based on Indian art, culture, and literature, with thought-provoking messages for society. To preserve these elements, sensible and informative films can do wonders. She has worked with many superstar Bollywood actors, comedians, and other respected dignitaries like DharmendraDeol, Akshay Kumar, Ranjeet Singh, the late Tom Alter, GautamGambhir, and many more. 

 

Social Advocate


BeenuRajpoot consistently champions Indian literature, art, and culture. She established the Delhi-based "AGRIMAA Society of Arts" in 2019. Precious Planet Charitable Trust (PPCT), Delhi was founded by her. 

 

Rajpoot's films are not mere entertainment; they are agents of social change. She uses cinema as a platform to raise awareness about critical issues and inspire action. Her work has sparked discussions on social injustices, making her a voice for the marginalized.

 

From Literature to Lights, Camera, Action!


Rajpoot's background in literature wasn't a detour but a stepping stone. Her keen eye for detail and ability to craft compelling narratives translated beautifully into the world of cinema. She began her career as a writer, collaborating on scripts and honing her storytelling skills. However, the desire to translate her vision onto the screen propelled her towards directing.

 

Bold and Unconventional Stories


Rajpoot's films are distinct. They delve into complex social issues, often focusing on the struggles and triumphs of women. Her debut film, "Born to Dance: A Glimpse into the life of a dancer", tackled the sensitive subject of Kathak dance. The film garnered critical acclaim for its poignant portrayal and unflinching honesty.  In 2016, the movie had its premiere at the India International Centre in Delhi. This film was also screened in the Government Museum and Art Gallery in Chandigarh, Patna. She devoted two hard years and a great deal of research to shaping the movie. "Born to Dance" was inspired by the life of Shovana Narayan, a Kathak dancer.

 

Breaking Stereotypes and Empowering Voices


Rajpoot's characters, particularly her female protagonists, are far from one-dimensional. They are strong, flawed individuals navigating societal pressures and defying expectations. Her films empower women, sparking conversations about gender equality and social change.

 

Despite her strong vision, Rajpoot values collaboration. She fosters a creative environment where actors and crew members can contribute their ideas. This collaborative spirit is evident in the powerful performances and nuanced storytelling that define her films.
