Are you a script writer who is looking to sell his script to production houses in Mumbai? If yes, then we suggest you begin with these three production houses first – Excel Entertainment, Dharma Productions, and Aamir Khan Productions. These three production houses not only accept scripts from outsiders but they also have a streamlined process for script evaluation and assessment. In this article we’ve explained how you can get in touch with these production houses.
1) Excel Entertainment
Probably the best production house to begin with since it gives a lot of respect to writers. This production house has a three-tier process for script submission. Before you send them your script make sure it’s registered with Film Writers Association (Screen Writers Association). You can email them your script (email id given below) or you can also hand it over yourself. If you want to hand it over yourself then we suggest you call them beforehand. We have explained the script submission process below.
- Email Your Script and Synopsis: In the first step you have to submit the synopsis and full-script to email@example.com. Your script would then be evaluated by a team of four members.
- 2nd Round: If your script passes the 1st round then it would move to the next stage where it would be evaluated by a three-member team.
- 3rd Round: If your script passes both these rounds then it’ll be shown to Farhan Akhtar or Ritesh Sidhwani. You’ll receive a call or mail regarding the same.

You can email them regarding your script submission query (email given below) and they will probably revert with the email address of the designated person whom you have to send your script to.

3) Aamir Khan Productions
Another production house that accepts script submissions from outsiders is Aamir Khan Productions. They receive close to 20-25 scripts every month so their process is really stringent. We suggest you mail them regarding your script submission inquiry and they’ll revert back with an email address where you can submit your script. You can also call them to ask about the process (we have given the number below). If that doesn’t work then you’ll have to go to their office where you can submit the script by hand and will be required to fill in some forms.
Script Submission Process
Your script is first evaluated by a small team. If they like it then it moves to the 2nd round. Those who make it to the 2nd round are informed about the same by email or phone. In the 2nd round the script is assessed in detail by another team. After it passes this round, it reaches Aamir Khan’s inner circle which includes his wife Kiran Rao. If she also likes the script then Aamir gets to read it. So it’s a long process but it’s a streamlined one. We have given the complete contact details below.

So, if you want to sell a script we suggest you begin with these three production houses. Be patient because these production houses can take weeks to assess your scripts. Make sure you rewrite as many drafts as possible before submitting your final script.
