I am grateful to the jury who gave full attention and appreciation to our attempt. I am sure that independent short films will grow with festivals like the International Cultural Artifact Film Festival as the makers come and network with industry professionals.”

Coming from a theatre background, Sandeep started acting at the age of seven. “I am sure 2020 is going to be an exciting year for me and my fans as they would get to see me on different platforms apart from television. I always wanted to surpass the boundaries of the medium and focus on good content. For me content is the king, the medium could be anything – television, digital, theatre, films, etc. I will work harder to break the stereotype and ‘Method Acting Ka Bhoot’ is a small step in that direction.” said Sandeep as he signed off and headed for a yoga retreat to Goa for the new year.
