Dakssh Ajit Singh: Even should you bag a movie, you may lose it to groupism


Actor Dakssh Ajit Singh believes the proverbial hole between the film and tv industries, which has usually prevented the filtration of expertise, has been correctively diminishing over time.

Recalling the early a part of his 15-year-long performing profession, he says, “I was content with modelling gigs when I was offered a TV show. Fortunately, my character was much lauded by the audience. I felt as if things will be alright from that point on and therefore, I started trying to bag roles in movies. However, like several other actors, I was also labelled as a TV actor by a few makers and casting people and was on stand-by for them.”

He provides, “Filmmakers would tell me — aap TV se ho, mushkil hai. If, at all, I landed a role, there was always the fear of losing it due to groupism and uncertainty. This was despite my doing some realy good roles during my career in the TV industry. Somehow, I was unable to cash in on the praise I was getting for my TV roles. It took me four years to break the jinx.”

The actor shot to fame with TV exhibits like Maryada: Lekin Kab Tak and Laado-2. Singh has additionally dabbled in penning lyrics for exhibits and Punjabi movies. When requested about OTT platforms, Singh stated, “OTTs are giving several good actors their due. Before the web revolution, many good actors, artistes, and technicians had negligible or no work. Thankfully, OTT happened and took the entertainment industry by storm. While the pandemic was disruptive for all of us, a number of makers, actors, and technicians achieved success during the time when the consumption of OTT content skyrocketed. I am also among those actors.”

Singh says he’s at the moment having fun with his new-found success and is elated with the type of work coming his approach. “Some roles change the course of your career, my character Laadi from the series CAT is surely up there. The show has been a game-changer for me. It gave me better control over my career. I am glad that my hard work has been rewarded. The series took time to release but it was able to win hearts. Next, I’ll be seen in a multilingual film that has a huge canvas, along with a series titled Gangs of NCR and another project Brown Boys in my kitty,” shares the actor.
