1. Tell us about your background and journey

I have studied media only, I am a pass out from trinity (BJMC) and you know, it was a project which I submitted for a practice dedicated to food and it's all started there. I started a Facebook community as Galliyo ka khana rozana then my girlfriend was really supporting about it so We both came together and started this journey full of food in 2016.

2. When did you first decide that you wanted to create content and how did you start?

It's like, I love food and I felt a day that I should be telling the others as well where to eat! Let's make it easy for the people as well to explore food and then I started making it.

3. Is vlogging and Instagram content creation a financially sustainable career?

Well, it is if you keep on doing so and don't let the negativity coming around your way. Its a struggle and everything is a struggle. You gotta do the hard work and anything can be your career. The world is a big workplace right now and there is a career for every passion.

4. Who is your favorite creator and why? 

So I really admire Khau Gali foodie for his amazing street food posts, I just love food styling from dawatehind and adatewithlife. And I see so much potential in young creators like TheFoodVlogger

5. How and where do you find inspiration to churn out content? 

Hahahaha! You don't really need to get inspired when it's food blogging because you see content in everything being edible. you always try to make a better version of the food which you have tried before and that is what Inspired.

6. What does your typical day look like?

Well, the days start with brainstorming that what should I be making today, what really the people would love to eat, and try at home since most of us are at our places because of the corona. Well, the day is kind of busy, cooking and recording then editing.

7. Which is your favorite book and why? 

The Art of Happiness by Dalai lama. I am sure you haven't met him if we do you will just fall in for the Dalai lama. He is a blessing. His teachings are just something that inspires me a lot. I have done a documentary on Tibetans where I and the team covered Dalai lama so I kind of really liked him.

8. What piece of advice would you like to give to future and aspiring creators?

Just keep going, don't stop. Try to find and explore the unexplored. Don't just stay in your comfort zone. Keep fighting, don't run. for the followers but for the content.
