Everyone is well aware of the power of social media. In the digital era that we are all in, social media reach is the key. It is the easiest way to connect with the whole world. Almost the whole world is on social media. Agree on it or not but you can not ignore social media.
The power of social media is such that it has given overnight stardom to millions of people across the world. With the rising popularity of social media, many personalities have been successful in achieving tremendous popularity. Among all the famous faces that are on the rise now, Tanuj Sapra is one of them.
Recently, Tanuj Sapra was in conversation with The Filmy Charcha where he opened up about his journey of becoming a social media star.
Very little is known about your journey of becoming a social media Influencer. How and when did it start?
To begin with, I never thought social media would actually help me build my career. I was always into modeling and fashion. My career started in 2006 in modeling. After that, I did try acting too. I eventually did land a few small roles. Besides, I have also been the host of a few shows. But it was during the lockdown that I started posting more regularly on social media and received a lot of love from all around. Since then this journey has been phenomenal.
Other than modeling and acting you are also a Tarot card reader. How did that happen?
Well, that was again completely unplanned. A friend of mine actually recommended this to me. It did excite me so I did enroll in Tarot card reading and now I am a certified Tarot card reader.
When millions of people lost their jobs and several businesses were shut down, surprisingly you saw an opportunity in the whole situation. How did that happen?
The COVID pandemic did shake the world. It was indeed one of the worst phases of everyone’s lives. However, with me luckily things were a little different. Since the country or the world at large went into lockdown, people started going online more than usual. That was the time when people started consuming more and more online content. Although it did affect the brand deals of the Influencer’s community people started seeing us more.
What do you think about your content makes you different or popular?
I feel people find my content very relatable. From my side also I try to keep my content simple and very relatable. Even with brand deals, I am very honest. I will only take up the brand deals that I have personally used and loved. I would not go for fake promotions ever. I think more or less this has worked in my favor of me.
What do you have to say about your journey so far?
I was always aware of the hard work and efforts that I have to put in to reach where I am today. I knew my career would not grow overnight. I had to struggle a lot to achieve whatever little I have today. When I look back at my journey, nothing but I feel overwhelmed by the love that I get from across the world.
