Drama-Rajya for Aniruddh Dave
Who would have thought that while practicing at the National School of Drama, Delhi, someone would have fallen in love with writing too Yes, that’s where it all started for Aniruddh Dave. He says, “The inspiration (for writing) came when I was in Delhi doing theatre. I used to go to National School of Drama for practice, so there I saw many people, who used to read and write, and it inspired me.”
“I have read approximately 200 to 250 books, so when you have a flair for reading, you automatically gain an interest in writing too. So, from there I got the inspiration to write,” he added. The Raajkumar Aaryyan actor has been jotting down his thoughts in a book since the past 12 years and has not only written poetries but also stories. “My flair for poetry is very old not only poetry but I have also written stories.”
“There is one hashtag called ‘jeevani’ the meaning is biography ‘jeev’ mean life and ‘ani’ is for Aniruddh, I have been writing for a long time and have created this hashtag also. I even thought of writing blogs but couldn’t do it. I still write my thoughts in a book for the past 12 years,” he added.
His poetry consists of satire and sarcasm and he says that he writes political satires too. “Right now how the condition is whether it is related to our field or the situation of the world, basically I would say, social political satire is the type of poetry I write.”
Talking about his favourite poets he said, “Ghalib, Urdu Rekhta, Murid, recently I liked Manoj Muntashir Ji’s work, he writes very good lyrics, poetry, and he has a very good knowledge of literature.”
The actor has penned some stories and scripts too and confirms that he will begin shooting one of them once things get back to normal.
“Yes I have written stories and script and by the grace of almighty, very soon, after lockdown, when things get back to normal, we will be going to shoot also and that will be on a very good scale so that the whole world can see it, because we have already spoken to the platform where it will feature,” Aniruddh said.
However, the actor admits that it’s his personal interest and said, “This is my personal interest and if it changes professionally then it is a different thing because writing is very much personal but if we write it professionally then nothing is wrong in it.”
