Recently, Ishwak Singh clinched the Best Actor award at the Stars Asian International Film festival for his role in the film Berlin.
He describes the moment as a “mosquito-ridden moment.” He feels life doesn’t fail to surprise you. He cooly stated, “I had broken sleep, woke up in the middle of the night, hating the mosquito that was biting me and so irritated. There were several messages from my director ‘Call me, it’s urgent’ because he is in the US attending the festival. I called him, and he told me that I’ve won the award, and the event is in the next hour. So, it was a surprising news in the middle of the night.”
He happily stated, “I want to dedicate the award to my director mainly because he was really inspiring for me. He lets you soar and fly.”
To give you more insights into Berlin, he plays a deaf character. Learning the intricate sign language was a big challenge for him and he feels “humbled” by this victory on a global platform.
He shares, “it’s sort of a gateway to more possibilities, but you can’t really put a finger on it. I didn’t know that Berlin would reach this point. In our line of work, you can never be calculative in that sense.”
