Message from Our Founder
The destination always inspires the path. But it’s the way you live that path is how one can determine how much the destination will be cherished and nurtured. Sitting in the beautiful lush green meadows of Queenstown (NZ), crisp sunshine healing and rejuvenating my body and soul. Fresh cold breeze conditioning the aura around – and the brain now relives the entire journey of MEERA – the sell-out stage production on the Gold Coast. The conception, the build up, the threatened miscarriage , the rescue , the joy of feeling the first kick, enjoying the turns and rolls within as it grew, and then feeling the growth with in to a point that the ribs started to ache. The baby (Production Meera – a cast 300 strong) was ready to take on the world.
Yes, it was like a full-fledged pregnancy, where I had responsibility of all the 300 people who believed in me, the idea, the passion. And when I conceived all of them together what a mammoth task it was to make sure all of us shined together on that spectacular stage of HOTA, Gold Coast on the 4th November 2018. To achieve so, like a mother does, like a father does, like a teacher does- had to do it all so that the time, effort , love that the entire Gold Coast has put in doesn’t go waste. But what amazing team we had. The support, respect and continuous unjudged affection I have received from everyone, makes each one of them a real star. Despite of all the responsibilities and pressures I had as a director, Producer (a completely self-funded project), Lead Actor and many other roles, the entire community came together and worked with us, for our commercial entity (Wild Dreamer Productions), selflessly and tirelessly.
Meera Flash Mob 2018 (Gold Coast)
I salute each one of you. In the history of Wild Dreamer Productions each one of you will be loved forever for all your contributions. Gathering all the love, strength and belief in humanity that I have received from the Gold Coast, I now spread my wings across the oceans all the way to Auckland, New Zealand and all across the globe, so that I can make you all proud of something you all have so passionately supported.
Keeping the mottos and ethos of Wild Dreamer Productions in mind, we are all geared to harness, nurture , collaborate and enjoy the journey of known and unknown in the world of arts and creativity by making this a sustainable career option for many and yet stay a commercial entity. Taking all the affection and blessings from everyone and sending loads of love to all from the Wild Dreamers of past, present and future.

From the 17th-19th of January, Wild Dreamer Productions held auditions for Meera the Production, at TAPAC Performing Arts Centre, Western Springs, Auckland.
It was an exciting three days where Team Meera anticipated witnessing over 100 talented individuals embracing the TAPAC studios with their dancing, acting and singing abilities – and they did not disappoint. With auditionees as young as 7 years old, there was an overall sense of exhilaration and eagerness in the waiting area for individuals to display their treasured flair.
Splits, cartwheels, twirls and jumps were left unscathed as Team Meera witnessed an abundance of dancing talent that Meera the Production will be honoured to display on our stages. The emotions that stemmed from the actors drama consultant Chamkur saw, left an impact on Team Meera where individuals who were nervous and new to acting inspired us all with the amount of emotion and connection with the character they possessed. Beautiful vocal chords flooded TAPAC and Team Meera left with full satisfaction and glee over the talent witnessed.
