ANKIT TEWARI-THE YOUNGEST FILM DIRECTOR OF INDIA
What makes someone special is not only the skill, intelligence, hardwork, and luck but brutal relentless passion (or madness) to follow one’s dream in the face of all adversities. The study of most successful people in the world tell us just one factor which is common amongst all of them- they never had it easy and toiled hard to achieve where they are.
Similar is the story of Ankit Tewari, a student of class XII at Delhi Public School Ghaziabad, Meerut Road an ordinary boy from a middle class family, until he fully utilized his energy to follow his dream to become “ The Youngest Film Director In India”
With no connections in media, TV or Bollywood, at the age of 15 years, he decided to make a movie of 1 hour. He received resistance and criticism from the family who continuously asked him to concentrate on his studies, to which he assured them that he will not compromise with his studies (the truth is he never cared about his studies, not even now, because nothing can come between him and his dream while making the movie. Thus, started the process of making- “THE CHASE BEGINS”, an action-romantic-drama feature film, which was released on YouTube in Nov.2015. While the plot of the movie was loosely visualized by him, he discussed it with his family to complete it and at some level, convinced them (mainly his mom, mama and nani) to act in it. It was sponsored by his family, including the equipments, recording of songs, dubbing and editing. Once it was completed, he was interviewed by Aaj Tak, Navbharat Times, DNA India and Dainik Jagran. After tasting success, he launched his own YouTube channel – “Ankit Tewari Films” . Then he also danced to Shah Rukh Khan’s Bollywood numbers- Jabra Fan RELOADED and Love Mera Hit Hit, and uploaded them on YouTube.
Continuing to pursue his dream , he decided to make his next movie on a much larger scale, technology & theme. Thus he started working on his dream project- ‘Ishq Shuda’ that consists of a huge cast. The film has been shot across Delhi NCR & Mussorie. The plot of the movie revolves around the dilemma of teenagers choosing their country over their love. It is likely to be released in theatres soon. He is probably the only teenager in the world to have achieved this feat and should hopefully go all the way to become “The Prince Of Bollywood” in years to come.
