Bollywood film industry is considered to be one prominent sector in India and by grasping that opportunity with immense amount of hard work for atleast a decade Mr. Uday Dongre embarked on establishing an individual company named as ‘The Rental House’ in year 1999. The company was started with India’s first Jimmy Jib Triangle Crane (USA Made) and a ARRI 435 Camera. Success of an organisation depends on Risks, Innovation, Opportunities and Marketing skills. By adapting all these factors with high level of motivation Uday Dongre kept on growing the business gradually.
