Jis din se chala hoon, meri manzil pe nazar hai… Aankhon ne kabhi meel ka patthar nahi dekha! Yeh phool mujhe koi virasat mein mile hain? Tumne mera kaanton bhara bistar nahi dekha!

But at the end of the day, art in all forms is a form of expression. It can be anything. It could be paint, you sing, you cook, but we all find ways to express ourselves.”

“It could be through Excel spreadsheets that you find a way. Maybe you colour-code everything. You should never doubt that you can’t pick something out. I think that there are things that you must learn early. And it will be a lot harder if you do it later. But that doesn’t mean it’s impossible,” shared Arin.

Santosh Singh opens up on fickleness of entertainment industry

Mumbai, July 22 (IANS) Director Santosh Singh, who recently helmed the streaming series ‘Ranneeti: Balakot & Beyond’, has shared his thoughts on the fickleness of the film industry.

Santosh has experienced both the highs and lows of an artiste’s career.

Reflecting on his journey, the director shared that change is an intrinsic part of the job.

Santosh was praised for his work on the streaming series ‘Broken but Beautiful season 1’, which starred Vikrant Massey and Harleen Sethi.

However, despite the show’s success, he was not involved in the subsequent seasons.

Santosh accepts this as a common occurrence in the industry.

The director told IANS: “Directing ‘Broken but Beautiful season 1’ was an incredible experience. The love and appreciation I still receive from fans is heartwarming. Although I was offered to direct season 2, it didn’t work out due to date issues. But that’s just how our industry operates. Interestingly, I ended up directing ‘Apharan season 2’ even though I wasn’t involved in season 1. As directors, we often find ourselves on both spectrums, and you can’t really complain about it.”

Santosh shared that from his early days as an assistant, he realised that one is only as good as their last release. It’s all about the quality of your work. This understanding has shaped how he approaches his profession and career.

The director firmly believes that if your film and its promotions are good, it will succeed.

“I am just happy about the opportunities I have been receiving so far. I am super excited for my upcoming comedy film ‘Nausikhiye’, starring Shreya Dhanwanthary, Abhimanyu Dasani, and Amol Parashar. It will be released in theatres soon, and I can’t wait for the audience to watch it,” he added.
