Ishwak Singh, who has been a part of ‘Tamasha’ and ‘Veere Di Wedding’, had a rather eventful 2020. ‘Paatal Lok’, a web series, proved to be a game-changer for him. His performance as a badass cop from the heartland won him a lot of praises and he has emerged as one of the most promising names in showbiz.
Recently, he was also seen playing a pivotal part in Nikkhil Advani’s short story titled ‘The Apartment’ which formed a part of ‘Unpaused’, an anthology film. He captured the attention of many with his performance as a young man who goes out of his way to help a neighbour.
Singh is now excited to be a part of the big league. He is going to headline Advani’s upcoming web series. Talking about it, the actor says, “I have always admired Nikkhil sir’s work. He is the kind of filmmaker who allows artistes to be fluid. The project came my way right after Paatal Lok. Telling a story in sync with a director’s vision and the writing is the greatest high for an actor. Beyond that, one should be able to add his personal dimension to the character.”
Grateful for 2020, he says, “Last year has been life-changing. The series put me in the spotlight, and the industry finally opened its arms to me. I wanted people to know what I represent, and now, I have an identity.”
