Tiktok Sensation Awez Darbar got into a fun and interesting conversation with us at India Forums and he spoke to us about his Youtube Journey, bringing back Dance with Awez, passion for dancing and much more.
Awez spoke to us about spending his time in the quarantine period. He said, “Apart from making videos, I am just watching netflix. That’s because we create stuff, we need inspiration. When I see something on netflix, the way they shoot and direct is mind blowing. Few of the series are too good, so I am seeing them and getting inspired.”
Awez talked about his passion for dancing and how he got into it, “I started off with music, my dad wanted me to become a music director. I wanted to tell him that I am not that interested in music and I’m more into dance. I used to wake up at 6 in the morning and play piano because of my dad’s fear. I learnt piano and drum for a year and gave the trainee exam and scored 87-90 percent. I told him that even though he is happy with this, I feel dead inside. I am not able to bring up my creativity because of this. I am not made for this, I am interested in something else. I told him that I gave you one year, now even he should give me sometime, let me do something but if it doesn't happen then I’ll come back to music. So I left my house, I joined Shaimak as an instructor, after gaining a lot of experience, I decided to go solo and started to make my dance videos. I started by posting on facebook but there were many issues there, so I came to Instagram, then I moved to Youtube.”
Awez also talked about bringing back Dance with Awez, he shared, “I started off musically with Dance with Awez which got very famous, people used to do a duet with me, like they used to copy the hand gestures that I used to do and I am starting all of this again. I want to relive the old memories. I am gonna get the stars on my live, I’ll make them do Dance with Awez, I’ll mostly start with Hardy Sandhu and then get Jannat Zubair. I am going to do it with all the people I know and then make them dance live, so ‘dance with Awez’ is going to be a live thing on Instagram.”
Talking about his Youtube journey, he shared, “Youtube journey was stuck because as I mentioned I underwent an accident. Then when it got better, I got a lot of fame on Tiktok, people started loving me for what I am. That’s when I decided to start my dance again because I started with it. That’s the reason I made ‘BYou’, it means Be Yourself.”
Talking about getting the support and words of encouragement from celebrities who are already established in their respective fields, Awez said, “It is encouraging but mostly it is the fruit of all the hard work that you are putting in. Do not wait for the result, let it come on it’s own, let it come all of a sudden, the feeling of surprise is great. If you are uploading something, don’t wait for it to become viral, keep making something else.”
Awez also shared about his marriage plans by stating, “Marriage is a big responsibility, you need to understand that if you have not reached a certain goal in your career and if you get married then your responsibilities get divided. Because of that, your mind is not at peace and things will fall apart.”
