He has a dashing similarity with Lucifer. His handsome persona, carelessly tossed mane, his quirky sense of humour and of course the unmissable green eyes that look into your soul... Gaurav Chanana is also one person who wears many hats, each suiting him. "The pursuit is of sheer happiness," he reveals. This all-heart feel was evident in the candid interview with RJ Aakanksha on Fever Digital, where Gaurav spoke of his venture Lucifer Circus that has made some of the most memorable films recently. The model-actor, in a candid interview on '100 Hours 100 Stars', talks about everything from work, home, family, life et al.
Gaurav took to social media to speak about his familial poetry-shayari recital that encourage a successful lockdown during these trying times! He speaks about the familiarity of his locales and how he is happy reminiscing about it. He explains that there is not much to go forward to but that life is flavourful. Compared to his escaping childhood that lies hidden in these familiar lanes, all of life's problems appear to be minuscule when the aged and wrinkled faces of parents smile at you! He adds that he misses his parents the most during the lockdown.
Gaurav also speaks about the adaptability of the human race! Speaking about the novelty found in new experiences, he reminisces the times when he had newly moved into a sea-facing apartment and he would relish the breeze every day! However, fast forward to today, he doesn't give much importance to it. “Humans survive. We get used to things. During lockdown, I sleep at 3 am and wake up at 12 in the afternoon. When lockdown is over, I will adapt.” He discloses that he is a mountain person as he lives near the beach! He also shares an instance of a man living in a palatial house and a man living in a 6x6 room!
Participating in a fun round of rapid fire, Gaurav discloses a fun fact that he doesn't really read! “People find it odd for a writer to not read,” he laughs it off. He also lauds Shikha Malhotra, an actor turned nurse, who has been helping out as a frontline Covid-19 warrior. He also adds that the frontline Covid-19 warriors deserve a non-stop tribute while the RJ concurs the actor-model's statement!
On the professional front, Gaurav Chanana, who is also an avid writer, is currently working on projects for Lucifer Circus, his production house. He avers, “If I don't feel happy doing something, I don't do it! Even if I lose money. Story-telling, if told from the heart, always works its charm!” Lucifer Circus also has path-breaking achievements to its credit, including a short film where a kid from the slums learns the language of a deaf and mute kid in order to communicate with him!
“The Prime Minister has done a great job so far! We need to do whatever we can and I urge everyone to donate,” signs off Gaurav. The funds raised will go to the Prime Minister’s Citizen Assistance and Relief in Emergency Situations (PM-Cares) fund.
