Bhavya Bengani, an actor and a Youtuber is a budding artist who is trying to create a balance between his acting interests, desire to become a cricketer, and his daily school studies.
In an interview with Sonalika Singh, Bhavya’s mother Manasvini explained the tiny tot’s journey from an expressive child to becoming a Youtuber and an actor.
‘Bhavya was always an expressive child and his expressions were very lucid, cogent and sharp’, says Manasvini.
After noticing this she decided to enroll Bhavya in a summer course for film and television acting when he was just 8 years old, where he learned how to face the camera and deliver dialogues in different situations. According to Bhavya’s mother, after attending the course Bhavya’s acting skills showed a marked improvement and the course also helped him to get rid of stage fright, which was his mother’s main motive for enrolling him in that course.
Besides, Bhavya also started participating in competitions like the poetry recitation and storytelling competitions where he bagged medals due to his expressiveness. His quest to give vent to his articulateness, led him to YouTube, a social medium, which he felt could be gainfully utilized to gain access to a wider audience and used as a tool for spreading motivational
In pursuance of this noble endeavor, he found his mother on his side, who especially learned editing for one month so that she could help her son to make and edit the videos he uploaded on his YouTube channel. ‘We made motivational videos to inspire other children with them’, she said. When asked about Bhavya’s feelings regarding the views he gets on his videos he said, ‘It feels good when my videos get more views and comments. I also reply to some of the comments and the number of people who have subscribed to my channel is more than 1000’.
In addition to his passion for acting and taking recourse to social media to act as the torchbearer of motivational awareness, Bhavya also has a deep interest in cricket and wants to become a cricketer. His parents support him in this endeavor as well, as they believe that parents must support their children in realizing their dreams come what may. His interest in
becoming a cricketer was fuelled largely by his exposure to international cricket, particularly the Indian cricket team’s stellar performance in prestigious tournaments. His school too is aiding him in the fructification of this desire.
Bhavya’s talents and his inner passion to realize his potential and dreams are bearing fruition owing to his immense zeal and rock-solid support of his parents and his school. With the path that he has chosen, it’s only a matter of time that his creative spark will be fanned into a fire.
