The actor has an alternate career apart from acting
‘Thapki…Pyaar Ki’ actor Ankit Bathla has a hidden talent.
Apart from being a very talented actor, Ankit is also an event manager!
Sharing details about his alternate profession, Ankit said,”I would give credit to my friend Shefali Saxena for this. She got me on stage as an anchor and I guess I did well. After that, there was no looking back.I branched out to setting up and conceptualizing entertainment capsules for weddings and other events. I think it’s fun as it gives you the freedom to create the world all by yourself. I can make my guests feel like they are in Paris while sitting in Mumbai.”
The actor detailed his skills, “I specialize in creating Employee Engagement and Development modules for corporates. We have recently branched out into creating installations and fashion shows.
In fact, God has been kind and we are setting up a fashion show featuring the designer wear of the upcoming film ‘Bahubali 2’ where Tamanna Bhatia and Rana Dagupatti are walking the ramp along with other celebrities. Events are someone’s life memories and that’s how I look at it.”
But what do you have to say about artists having an alternate career option?, we quizzed Ankit to which he replied, “As an actor, I feel it’s important for one to do something which can help him or her to get out of the skin of a character before getting into another one. I am lucky that I am following both my passions as an actor and also as an event manager.”
Speaking on the uncertainty of success in the field of acting, Ankit averred, “Acting is not a regular job. Monotony may be dangerous for an actor. Having said that, if one knows his job there is nothing to be insecure.”
Way to go Ankit!
