People discouraged me from stepping into production; I want to prove them wrong, says Shakti Anand
Tellychakkar.com caught up with Shakti Anand to know about his new venture and much more. Says Shakti, “Yes, our show is presently in the pre-production stage. This is a whole new experience wherein we are learning the art of making a serial. From choosing actors to directors, meeting channels, deciding on the costumes, it has been a good experience so far. All I can say is that we are making stars today (smiles).”
Talking about his hidden passion the actor turned producer tells us, “I always wanted to get into direction. I wanted to provide a story to the audience which is being told by the director. But now that I have turned producer, I get an opportunity to diversify.”
Ask him whether it’s easy for him to turn producer as he has the experience of being an actor, and Shakti immediately corrects us and says, “It’s not easy at all. There are a lot of big fishes in television (smiles) and we have to pace our steps amidst some big competition. There are people who have discouraged me from stepping into production, but I want to prove them wrong.”
Talking about the extent of their involvement, he states, “The story will be ours, and we are in charge of the creative stuff. All I can tell you about the show as of now is that it is a social drama. Our expectations are high, as there are many who are looking forward to this maiden venture of ours. And to top it all, our show is on the major GEC, Star Plus. We need all your blessings to gain success.”
Last but not the least, Shakti credits his daughter Nakshatra for all the recent developments in his life. “Our baby Nakshatra has provided us with this luck. The decision of producing a show was taken after she was born. So I would like to say that she has brought us luck (smiles).”
All the best, Shakti!!!
