When Shiva Shukla, a resident of Phaphund, a small town in Auraiya district UP, expressed his desire to become an actor, everyone around made fun of him.
Last seen as the protagonist’s friend in the web-film Sitapur: The City of Gangsters, the actor recalls, “I didn’t even have a TV at home and would watch the serial on a black and white set at a friend’s house. Was. I used to tell people that one day they would get to see them on the same screen, people used to laugh at me, including family members.”
Elaborating more about his journey UPite says, “During my school days, I participated in a few plays. After passing intermediate I joined theater. A year after my father passed away, that incident made me more determined to prove myself. Initially, I was into mimicry and started going to places within the state to act. So, from my city I reached Kanpur, then Lucknow, Delhi and finally I reached Mumbai. Theater was not paying me well but when I joined event companies. I was doing commercial plays and stand-up acts which earned me better money.
“Shiva Shukla has been a part of a show made for a channel. And also did quite a few short films, “I tried my hand at acting and producing with the short film Sorry Mom (2018), which was based on de-addiction. It ran extensively in the De-addiction and Rehabilitation Center. Then I got an opportunity to work with Govind Namdev ji on a film project. But unfortunately the film got shelved. Meanwhile, I launched my start-up called Bollytimes which helped me stay in the city. Now I believe that extra income is necessary to realize the dream of acting. It’s a very tough world out there.”
Apart from acting in the film Sitapur, he also played the role of an executive producer. “I am next working on the film project of Sagar Pathak, the director of the film “Cypher Shoonya Se Shikhar Tak”.
