TheDC. What inspired you to want to become a mimicry artist?
Sidhant: Watching Bollywood films was the biggest inspiration for me to Mimic them. I was amazed by the versatility of our actors, their voice ranges and their mannerisms and pecularisms so much so that I wanted to imitate them. As they say, “imitation is the greatest form of flattery”, I think by mimicking them, I am paying all of them a tribute.
TheDC: Were your family supportive of your decision?
Sidhant: Yes, thankfully my family have been very encouraging and is very supportive to me in this field.
TheDC; How did you prepare? What were the hurdles, how did you overcome then?
Sidhant: I prepare myself for imitating others by watching movies and by watching other mimicry artist from our country. I didn’t experience much hurdles except for when I was in a competition, and I was out after being in 10th position. That inspired me to keep on pushing myself and perfecting my art.
TheDC. Where do you see yourself, five years from today?
Sidhant: I see improvement in myself as a mimicry artist, my contents, my writing skills, and my imitating skills. I hope that people across the country will know me for my mimicry skills by then.
TheDC: What suggestions would you give those who want to follow on your footsteps?
Sidhant: If someone wants to follow on my footsteps or is already starting to mimic others, I would suggest them to learn by watching movies, work hard on your skills, and work even harder in your content. There is no short-cut to success, so practice-practice-practice every opportunity you get.
