Celebrated filmmaker and screenplay writers Rajkumar Hirani, Juhi Chaturvedi and Anjum Rajabali have invited young scriptwriters to be a part of Cinestaan India’s Storytellers Script Contest. This will be the second edition of the contest announced by actor Aamir Khan.

The contest follows a transparent process of accepting only those entries that are registered either with the Screen Writers Association (SWA) or with any other organisation where registration is considered valid.
Rajabali, who is also the jury chairperson, says, “We are currently shortlisting the scripts from the first edition. The winners will be announced before the year-end.”
The filmmaker of Sanju, while sharing the details of the contest adds: “I understand the struggle of writers. This is a wonderful opportunity for them and I am happy to be a part of the second edition of the contest.”
