Some actors are born and others are trained, but when it comes to making a film about pigeons, how do you get these avian creatures to act?

UAE resident Len Prasad found the answer to that and more on the set of Malayalam film Parava, which is soaring high at the box office. Prasad was assistant director to filmmaker Soubin Shahir.

After living in the company of pigeons for over a year, this Dubai resident is back home. He certainly misses the cooing of his roommates. Prasad remembers it as a fascinating learning experience.

Prasad will next work on the sets of Trance with director-producer Anwar Rasheed, whom he calls his mentor. Rasheed produced Parava.

And, one day, he intends on making his own film.
