He was there to shoot a commercial for a motorcycle brand
Bike rides, fresh air and adrenaline rush – those are the three words that bring a smile on actor Dishank Arora’s face. He is now seen as Shivam on Balika Vadhu. The actor is also going to be seen on the experimental film, Missing On A Weekend.
The actor tells us, “As someone who is transitioning and juggling between television and Bollywood, life can be stressful. Shooting for 10-12 hours at a stretch can isolate you from your inner-peace.” When stressed, Dishank believes in going for a spontaneous long bike ride, all by himself, to connect with nature in a solitary manner. The Kaisi Yeh Yaariyan actor did the bike shoot in Kashmir and is over the moon after the experience.
In the ad, we see Dishank traveling to different parts of a hill-stations, through steep, hilly roads and forests on his bike. Every time he stops to check his phone, he sees that the connection is getting weaker. The deeper he divulges into the woods, the weaker the network becomes. There comes a point where his phone finally shows ‘No Service’ and that’s wherein he finally connects with himself.
The shoot was to happen on the steep, hilly roads of Kashmir and in the woods that were unadulterated and unexplored for many.
“The concept was amazing because I believe in the idea of ‘connecting with your inner self’ and since it involved me traveling to Kashmir, there was no way I would ever say no! In today’s world, our lives are dictated by our phones and social media. Being on a detox is very important at times to get some sanity and calmness back in life! The experience was exhilarating. I have done a lot of bike rides in the past, thanks to Squadron. But this was a different experience altogether. The view was mind-blowing. The rugged look and the style that they gave me suited me too. This project will always have a special place in my heart!” says Dishank.
