  • I am all off 20 years old and I have been acting since the past 19 and 1/2 years or so.

  • Yeah, you heard that, right?

  • I was the Johnson's baby 2000.

  • So in many ways, you could say I was born to do this.

  • My grandfather wakes up one morning, he season out in the papers, and he tells my mom that they're looking for a fresh chair up for the new campaign on my mom decides to not be lazy about it.

  • She takes me for the audition amongst us 200 other wailing babies and I land the part on the basis of me being the happiest baby of the Lord, which is a lie.

  • Let me just tell you that I just had a good appetite.

  • So that's my story in a natural, a little bit of initiated, a little bit of persistence and a whole lot of good fortune.

  • By the age of five, I had done over the 100 commercials and a feature film with the big B on.

  • I was about to do another one with Ahmed Khan and Casual that from being funner by the age of Dana had done nine feature films, which included a pompom partner, Spatula and my friend Ganesha Toe, which wasn't exactly a box office smash at the time.

  • But I can tell you one thing.

  • It has a card falling off its own, so it works fine for me.

  • Ah, I was preparing for a large scale.

  • So prepare a four star plus and in my own tiny way, I had experienced everything that stars get to experience.

  • You know, I heard a cut ribbons.

  • I had danced at birthday parties.

  • I had compared the reality show I was affiliated with Mattel Toy Brand, and I was also fortunate enough to be invited as a chief guest for some charity functions.

  • So life was really good and it all just come my way or I had it see, maybe, just maybe, it wasn't by dumb luck, you know, maybe I had landed up where I was for a reason.

  • Being a part of the movie's was undeniably special, exciting and extremely educative.

  • I learned so much about life and waste sooner than a lot of others my age did, but it wasn't just about being a part of the movies.

  • I had a very personal connection with stories, irrespective of my involvement with acting and cinema.

  • I grew up listening to them, you know, from the silly old stories my grandparent's to remain Gujarati to the eeriness off Raskin borns, tiger in the tunnel told to me by my father to the spectacular and fascinating sod off Harry Potter and the Visiting World and all that pop culture has to offer in superheroes, cartoons, princesses and kingdoms.

  • I had absorbed every bit of it at a very early age.

  • Perhaps that's why, in my second grade, when I would have a free period, I would be ruminating on these improbable, bizarre crossovers between Shrek, Superman, the Ninja Turtles and so on.

  • So maybe it wasn't by accident.

  • Maybe my affinity to wanting to tell stories brought me that I waas.

  • It was the unrealized truth within my personal character arc in the screenplay of my Life, but they're often must be a plot device.

  • Your lower plot devices.

  • It's so it's something external, which triggers the realization that is Ah, very internal.

  • And it happened to me on the sets off.

  • Gullible.

  • I was 11 years old on the show hadn't been doing as well as we had all imagined it would.

  • And one day the writer called in sick and we had to shoot an entire episode and we didn't have a script.

  • It had to go on air.

  • So what happens then?

  • One of my co actors, So Sean, sing off volunteer to write an entire episode, and he did, and we shot it and the T R.

  • P.

  • Rose and it was that simple.

  • And I phoned me, asking myself if he can, Why can't do cheeky little 11 year old?

  • I was convinced that I could have done a fine job, too, and it just stuck.

  • And suddenly all the years of listening to stories made sense because I realized that I wanted to tell stories through movies and still people in the same way that I had been stirred growing up.

  • So I set up my own little film school.

  • I picked up the dusty screenplays off Fun on Tara rump.

  • I'm lying in my bed, and I began writing my own stories in the same format as those screenplays, and I learned most of it myself.

  • With time.

  • Syd Field, Robert McKee, Blake Snyder Ah, lot of articles a lot of video aces and a whole lot of cinema consumption eventually made me feel like a reasonably able screenwriter.

  • And then I was introduced to the term networking in 2015 on a social media application.

  • If you'll have heard of it, all the millions in the room ask FM, remember asking him through asking him.

  • I met some really cool people, and we made a very bad shortfall.

  • That was, to this state one of the best learning experiences of my entire life.

  • And suddenly I had made for such short films, each getting progressively better the following year.

  • In 2016 I co produced and co directed to really successful plays with Big Casts and Big Cruise and All That Jazz I have now a deed on a film called Gold On have since then written and directed six short films off Richer.

  • Three have been this year on.

  • I've also had three feature films that I acted and released this year.

  • It's been a fulfilling yet emotionally heavier because along with growing up and finding my calling, I also found myself getting exceedingly obsessed with what I do.

  • I live in my stories and it seems I've spoken enough about my work.

  • So now I'm gonna talk about a team delusion of knowledge, and I'm gonna elaborate on this one time that I thought I was trapped within my illusion of knowledge.

  • See, somewhere around two years ago, I discovered that I have a problem.

  • Okay, On it is a bit of a strange problem tohave on.

  • I mean, this very literally.

  • Not figuratively.

  • I can't live a single day off my life as I go about my proceedings without thinking that my life is a movie.

  • And I don't mean this in a way that my life is eventful and dramatic.

  • I legitimately see every single moment of my life as a scene in a film or as a part off a film.

  • And it makes me take reality very lightly.

  • It makes me Reverend.

  • I'm gonna use an example to highlight how grave my problem is.

  • You see, my friends and I, we often talk about conspiracy theories like the Mandela effect of the Bob Lazar area 51 for your regular intellectual masturbation.

  • And sometimes we all seem driven to know the truth, you know?

  • How does the world function?

  • How does the universe make things happen, Which is good, because, I mean, it's insightful.

  • But I only want to know this truth because it would make for a goddamn, engaging movie, that's all for me.

  • The lines between fact and fiction are very blood, and that's God's honest truth.

  • I have background score in my head all the time, even with my relationships, when the going is good, I have almond fuzzy montage music in my head, and when it's bad, it gets kind of a devilish, kinda edgy Tish.

  • Sometimes it goes all the way to Jeet Singh and the Suffering Brothers and all that.

  • But let's keep that aside.

  • Uh, even with my relationships, I have often been with someone that I believe wasn't exactly the best for me.

  • But I nevertheless stayed in that relationship because I, stupidly enough heart that one day our story would be a romance for the ages.

  • Yeah, on a lot of days when I don't have motivation to get through, I just keep telling myself that one day your life will be made into a commercially successful and critically acclaimed biopic on I'm Like, Okay, Cello that's got a nickel.

  • So that's me.

  • I can't tell the difference between what's real and what's the movie and off late.

  • You know, this year my thoughts really began to bother me.

  • William Shakespeare, anyone?

  • That damned playwright.

  • I love him and he said something.

  • He said All the world's a stage and the men and women merely players.

  • Now I don't have to give what he said too much thought because he said it and I was like, Okay, whatever.

  • But there it struck me.

  • But if all the world is a stage and the men and women merely players, then where do we as artists fit in?

  • We are the were the actors and the creators within a larger stage right?

  • That means the people that run countries and maintain order in the world.

  • They're the real players.

  • They're running the show.

  • So what are we?

  • Are we just Philip performances?

  • Is it like we just exist to sell impractical dreams and distract people by buying, making them buy into the illusions of emotions that we manipulated?

  • Lee tailor.

  • It can't be that because I have spent my entire life in this field and here I am believing that you know my life is a movie or everything in my life should be made into a movie.

  • And to think that my choice of lying on my means to voice my thoughts may just be so fickle and it relevant in the larger scheme of things is horrifying.

  • My illusion of knowledge, me finding relevance in my universe.

  • Through the stories I write, the pictures are making the people I plea.

  • But what if none of that matters at all?

  • You've heard you've heard the saying theater imitates life.

  • But if the world is a stage, what if we have been living life imitating the tater around us?

  • You know, when you've dedicated all your life to a certain feel and you've grown in it and you've grown with it and you've been known and loved for your contributions to it and you know that they couldn't be any other way for you to possibly express yourself and then to ponder over whether it is important at all or not is a big rejecting because art, for me, is a mirror to society.

  • But if I'm simply holding up a mirror to the observable truths around me, am I making change?

  • That's the question.

  • You know, doesn't my short film hitting 25,000 views on YouTube matter?

  • My art, however well intentioned, are honest I may believe it to be?

  • Is it making a difference to the lives of people, like somebody that is an inventor or a leader?

  • A change maker, maybe an activist?

  • These are no fracking three AM thoughts where I feel optimistic, Lee nihilistic.

  • I feel purposeless.

  • I feel like a speck in the universe that will just get lost into oblivion, and I don't want that to happen.

  • So I such a search for an answer.

  • And that's when I find it because Great Scream place too often have something called a logical loophole.

  • And I cracked it and it baffles me how I didn't see it all along because the answer lies in the question.

  • So let's go really slow now.

  • Okay?

  • William Shakespeare said all the world's a stage and the men and women are merely players would say that one more time.

  • All the world's a stage and the men and women are merely players.

  • So I as one off the men and women, I'm playing a part, too, which means that I ought to have a designated audience because I am on the stage.

  • Do and that is a full 360 in perspective because that's when you realize that your work matters maybe not millions, but to hundreds, ends or tow that one person that you can deeply effect your art matters because you're on the stage doing simply by that logic, you have an audience doom.

  • Every time I wanted to make a short film, I was questioned, and when the short film didn't do as well as I wanted it to do, I question myself.

  • But I know that I couldn't have possibly been standing here today without all the failed short films that didn't do as well as I wanted them to do.

  • Me.

  • Standing here is proof of that.

  • So does everyone that has, ah, lot to say, but fears over whether that's what someone needs to hear or not.

  • Say it nevertheless, make that short film start your YouTube channel right that block post go for that audition, get that portfolio may just play your part and don't ask too many questions because you are very you are for a reason, and that's what I believe you know just the way I found my calling and filmmaking the same way every artist out there is doing what they're doing because of the way they gravitate towards their form.

  • And that process is the best part.

  • That connect the artist has with his form is magical, you know, it's where fact and fiction gets blurred.

  • For me, it's a transcendent trip.

  • So if we're all on the stage as Billy believes, then let's play a part with sincerity.

  • Let's be methodical and lets you know, really embrace the process of honing our respective crafts.

  • And if we do so, will not only be satisfied, but we'll also be lauded by our respective audiences, no matter how big or small on artist.

  • Holding up a mirror to society is also making change by having people reflect on themselves.

  • I don't know how I seem to miss that, so we may not be in renters, but we have a part to play, too.

  • So let's do it right.

  • Let's internalize are part.

  • Let's understand what we're seeking on.

  • Then let's express it with sheer conviction and get it right, because in both later on in life, there are no retakes but There are three takes and movies, which is why I will continue making them for as long as I'm around.

  • So, ladies and gentlemen, on a closing note, I would just like to say that your knowledge matters.

  • Don't be disillusioned by yourselves.

  • You are an indispensable part off the artist's food chain.

  • And lastly, always remember Rihanna upset.

  • It's not the art, but not We are apprehensive.

  • Thank you.

I am all off 20 years old and I have been acting since the past 19 and 1/2 years or so.
