Bollywood producer Siddharth Roy Kapur says it is very important take child steps whereas restarting the leisure business as soon as the lockdown is over. Post pandemic, the producer feels everybody must be “extra careful” — failure of which can solely result in a “worse situation”.
“Coming to the post-pandemic situation, we have to take baby steps and go very slow,” Siddharth stated. “Because in filmmaking we need a lot of crew and we have to be very careful with that, because lives can be at risk. If we don’t be extra careful, we will be in a worse situation where we won’t have an option even to restart,” he added.
Talking about his love for films, Siddharth stated: “I was obsessed with movies from my childhood. I used to always participate in theatre. Being from a non-industry background, it was a kind of unimaginable dream but I was always engaged in the entertainment field — be it creative writing, acting, directing or producing.”
“At that time, I used to enjoy being in the production team and I used to like the fact that a producer is involved in the journey from start to end, and brings all the talent and creativity together to create magic on screen. That’s how my journey started. When I finished my first year B.Com, I started my internship with UTV Productions. It was a small production house but with a big ambition. I used to like the passion and energy in the environment and that’s when I met Ronnie Screwvala,” he added.
Siddharth continued: “I was always in touch with him. Later when I was in Hong Kong, working with a leading production house, I got a call from Ronnie and he asked me to be part of his dream. I thought it was an amazing idea and we did some amazing work together.”
He expressed his views throughout a dialog with actor Kiran Joneja within the digital version of her chat present Insider Talk. Along with the present, Kiran can also be internet hosting free performing workshops on social.
