Gwalior, 7 Friday 2014: Ad film director Prahlad Kakkar visited Little Angels High School’s Commerces Fest-2014 as chief guest. Below are his words of success:
Good morning friends, industry knows me with the name Prahlad Kakkar, but here I am just your friend. Coming between you has made me re-visited my school days. Because I have lived my school days to the fullest. After completing the studies as every student think of getting a good job, that didn’t happened with me. My first job was at a advertising company as account executive. I did job at the day time and sometimes I have to sleep at the office.
Sometimes I even had to do the cleaning work at the office. With this job I learnt only one thing that if I want to succeed I have to see the dreams. Through which I reached to this destination, but today I see youngster and job workers in immense tension. That’s why I say to them instead of making job time bound, enjoy it and whatever you do it should display creativity.
To select a career, youngsters should realize their passion. Because to which today successful person is that who choose his passion as profession.
Vision of advertisement: Advertisements are only dreams. Our work is to show people that part of life which they always wanted to live, but they don’t realize about it. I use to day-dream at my college days. That time it looks useless, but today it helps me. Hindi advertisements are funny and entertaining which public love to watch.
Work experience with Sachin Tendulkar: 15 years back our team setup went to Vadodara for an Pepsi advertisement. In this advertisement Sachin had to be screened playing with village kids. During the ad shoot Sachin was very nervous, but I told Sachin that you feel yourself as a villager, then the ad shoot got completed.
Upcoming projects: I am starting a film “Happy Anniversary” with Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. Along with that I will bring Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Sushmita Sen together in an ad campaign. Do remember that due to a dispute at Miss World event they both never came together.
Kakkar’s 4 elements to keep depression at bay:
- Reading books increases knowledge and thought process
- If you want to look different, change your working style
- Hard work is the mantra to become better from others
- To reach the goal there should be full planning
Reviewed student’s advertising: During the event Kakkar displayed 15 ads which were made by him. He also reviewed 5 ad films made by student. During the event LAHS Director Sunil Olyai, Tina Olyai and school principal Dr. Shabana Rehan were present.
