Keyrun Rao

Author: Keyrun Rao

A dreamer and an aspiring filmmaker, Keyrun Rao started his career as a glorified peon at a Company Secretary’s office. He then graduated to dotcom marketing in a city where nobody had heard of the internet. After a short stint as a crime journalist, Keyrun shifted to Mumbai after getting a job at a BPO here. Having spent four years there, he realized the pointlessness of his existence and joined an advertising agency as a trainee copywriter where he earned a fraction of what he made as a call centre employee but rediscovered his love for words. Initially Keyrun wrote display classified ads, obituaries and eventually stepped up the ladder to write ad campaigns for prestigious brands like Hyundai and Tata Indicom. He is now penning his own film scripts at nights, and writes for BollywoodLife during the day. Keyrun has a very soft corner for indie cinema and Old Monk rum.
