I admit I was forced to refuse some huge offers from the Tollywood, but losing my mother in September 2017 caused an intense trauma to me. This was a totally unexpected loss and was unbearable to me. I’d be not wrong if I say it was the biggest loss of life to me.”
The interviewers paused due to the heavy emotional statement. Later, one of the interviewers curiously asked,
What sparked your journey towards entrepreneurship?
I was associated with the Digital Media very passionately since it became almost an inception in India and missing this out bursting opportunity wasn’t my plan. I saw the emerging era of Digital media as the future path, and now I’m working as “Digital Media Strategist”. I have registered my own Advertising and Digital Marketing Company known as “D.K. Advertising and Branding” and we have numerous clients from India and even abroad who are taking wholesome benefit of our uniquely crafted creative marketing strategies. Various brands reached out to me for their branding and video Advertisements. But I’m not really planning to stop there itself, and therefore I’ve also commenced my latest business venture of Super Delivery App, ‘Spoons 11’ that we’ve launched in Hyderabad almost a month ago along with my partner Imtiyaz.”
Why do you want to work specifically with newcomers or the new talents?
To be honest, during my struggle period, I played quite hard to grab an opportunity to bloom. I visited several people in order to achieve my ambition but big guys just fake promised. I know the feeling of not being given a chance even when you’re deserving. I don’t want that to be suffered by other strugglers. I respected each and every new entrant, and new talent and strongly feel that everyone deserves being given a chance.”
You are among the few one who helped YouTube to grow in the beginning in India by introducing the concept of Short length films, why didn’t you start your own YouTube channel?
I never looked on it as a need. We lacked cameras, editing suites and even we couldn’t really afford a dubbing studio. I was bothered about shooting short films to which I issued a right to release for YouTube channels, who in consideration promised to provide us with free editing and camera. By this technique, my films helped variant media channels to grow in Hyderabad. They never used to have content creators, and even after a long span of eight years, the scenario is still the same. They still lack quality content. But now I’ve planned to launch the most anticipated YouTube channel soon which will produce selectively useful, informative and sensible content for all age groups.
