In an exclusive interview with The Daily Guardian, she opened up about what’s a day like in the life of Dolly Singh, how she balances her professional and personal life, her family and friends’ reaction to her Cannes debut, and her Rad Living candle collection.
Dolly shared she generally shoots in the morning. And if she doesn’t have anything to post or if she has to post a video right away, she also sits on an edit, finishes the editing, and then starts working on other projects. Further, she added scripting happens mostly at night because her creativity comes out better at night, it’s a long day process, and there’s no stopping when you are your own boss. No two days look the same.
Dolly also spilled beans on how she balances her personal and professional life. “There’s no way to manage it. Content is such that you keep looking for inspiration everywhere, so even in your personal life, if you are out, your mind is constantly working, and you are open to observation.” Dolly shared that in the last two years, she tried to have a more personal life and personal area of interest that does not relate to her work in general.
Singh shared her friends and family’s reaction to her Cannes debut. She appreciates her team and agency OML Entertainment. “It was a great moment for me. I was very overwhelmed in a very nice way. Beginning of a lot of stress as well. All my friends are excited, and when I told my mom I’m going to Cannes she asked me if I wasn’t coming back home, since I haven’t been to home for so long.”
She also talked about her Rad Living candle collection. “It’s a wonderful phase. She is delighted to partner with Rad Living to give her audience an immersive experience. This step has a lot to do. My father sold candles in his gift shop in Nanital, and my mother manufactured candles at home and sold them to retailers around town. My connection with candles is not a newfound fascination but travels back to my childhood.”
Dolly Singh is well-known for her work on the OTT series Modern Love: Mumbai, Double XL, and Butterflies and whose mainstream film, whose title is currently being kept a secret, will be making her official debut at the Cannes Film Festival this year. Later this month, Singh will go to the French Riviera, where she will attend official film screenings at the venerable Grand Lumiere Theatre and walk the red carpet.
Dolly has established herself as one of the most recognisable content producers in the country today thanks to the creation of her own Dollyverse, which features adorable tiny characters like Raju Ki Mummy, South Delhi Girl, Guddi Bhabhi, Zeenat, and Shree. The Nanital girl next door expanding her list of accomplishments by producing content, performing, working with companies and celebrities, winning awards, and starting a business with Rad Living candles.
For the unversed, the Cannes Film Festival is well-known for its opulent red carpet-attire, and the dress code is carefully observed during screenings. It will run from Tuesday, May 16 to Saturday, May 27, in Cannes, a resort town on the French Riviera, France.
