(We address Glamstr Representative as GR and Mr. Vikram Sachdev as VS)
(GR) You are a writer precisely. So how this start?
(VS) It was all started from my diary. I used to write from childhood, pages after pages and when the last page remaining, then I realized that I can really pour down my thoughts and can keep writing continuously for hours. I write about spiritualism and philosophy too.
(GR) Tell us about your talent apart from being a good writer?
(VS) Well, I am a good singer too. I used to hum and sing at any time except when I write. This habit gradually made my voice strong and got a good quality of a singer. I was also fond of photography since college years but I was not able to learn it in those years as it was costly, at least for me. But then I visited Mumbai, bought photography reel at a reasonable price and made a dark room for myself to learn and for my own development. The desired of wanted to learn and the practiced what made me who I am today.
(GR) Is it because of your profession that you stay here in Mumbai?
(VS) We shifted to Mumbai for my daughter’s career, Miss Kiran Sachdev. She is a Bollywood playback singer and an International performer.
(GR) When did you start taking interest in acting?
(VS) I was an engineer in DCM group, Shri Ram Company in electricity department. I handled the lighting work of cultural function and theater play and love to watch the play. Then one day, I asked our company theater group to let me participate in plays and I was awarded and got a compliment for my best acting performance from Mr. Ravi Shankar who was the head and the judge of the play. I even used to write cultural plays and theatre plays when I was here.
I am an associate with Act Cool Atharva Film Production and also teaching the student about acting and filmmaking.
(GR) How you defined ‘Art’?
(VS) Once I tried to know about ‘ART’ from a saint, spiritualist and philosopher but I was not able to get a satisfying answer. Then I started to do research from books and compared with all circumstances included of what I heard of and from what I witnesses and from self-experience then I come to the conclusion to myself that ‘Art is a suffer of himself’.
(GR) How do you learn in FilmMaking?
(VS) Like I told you, I love to learn and explore so age doesn’t really matter to anyone who wanted to earn knowledge and explore their ability. I turned 60 in 2015 and retired from my post in Railway Civil Engineer and did a certificate course in Film Direction. I learned about editing from Youtube and all my short movies are edited by myself and most of the filmmaking techniques I learned from Youtube itself.
(GR) Are you still continuing your journal writing to date?
(VS) Yes, very much. I remember once upon a time, when I was so much involved in my journal, then one day I realized all of my colleagues already ahead of me and in better position, then I completely stopped interacted with my journal but soon enough, I felt like there is no life without my precious diary so I get back to it.
