The 27-year-old Delhi boy, Shashank Arora made his debut with the critically acclaimed flick 'Titli' written and directed by Kanu Behl, where he played the titular character. His second 'Brahman Naman', directed by filmmaker Q (Qaushiq Mukherjee) Is soon about to surface on Netflix. Shashank wanted to be part of the film because comedy was one of the genres he wanted to know. 'I might never do [a comedy] again,' he said jokingly.
Set in the '80s Bangalore chronicles three teenaged boys' pursuit of sex, Shashank feels 'Brahman Naman' is an experiment gone wrong. 'I'm not saying it's a bad movie, it means we learnt' It's an experiment and that's about it,' he said in an interview to a national daily. In fact, he hardly expected anything much from the film. 'I had no intention other than experiencing making this film. I didn't think it would be pushed the way it's being pushed and I didn't really care when I was shooting it. I loved making it,' he said.
When asked about stardom, he said, 'It's fickle and I've seen many a sad soul go mad with it. It's like chasing gold at the end of the rainbow and sometimes the rainbow disappears.'
His first ever film premiered at Cannes and the next at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival and the actor, who aspires to becomes a musician and carpenter, has his hands full for the moment. His upcoming films are 'Rock On 2', 'The Song of Scorpions', 'Lipstick Waale Sapne' and he just got done with his own untitled film alongside 'Haraamkhor' director Shlok Sharma. 'It's India's first film to be shot on an iPhone 6s Plus. Let's hope it gets into Cannes and Sundance so I can continue living this travel-happy life,' he said.
