DOLLY SINGH – Comic Influencer Of The Year (Female)


Ex : How did your content creation journey kick start?
Actually, in terms of content, I already had a fashion blog and a YouTube channel for that fashion blog, and it was called Spill the Saas. So, I was making content, but it was different from what I do now, which is more entertainment and comedy. A comedy thing happened when I was working with iDiva as a writer, and it just happened that we were supposed to start making videos for the platform. We all had to do that together, and some of us got a lot of attention and love from people, and that’s how I got the kick-off. I started taking it more seriously and making my own content on Instagram in line with the comedy I was doing. So, that’s how it started, and now here we are.

Ex : What is your most viral reel/short? How did the idea come, and how long did it take to shoot?
So, a few have reached millions of views, but I will share two of the most special ones because one is this deal that I made, where I have this series called “How aunties talk about sex”. After all, I wanted to talk about sex. It’s such a taboo thing in our society, and I wanted to talk about it in ways that normalise it by making it fun and exciting so people can share it. So, one of those videos from the series went viral, and a lot of people enjoyed it and shared it, which was fun to see. I was happy that, at least in the form of humour, we were talking about some important things and taking the taboo away. And the second one was either a series on Wednesday or an Indian version of the Wednesday called Budhvar, and people liked it.

Ex : Any 4 creators you want to collaborate with in the future
Jenna Mowels, Emma Chamberlain, and Mia Maples.

Ex : What piece of tech is your favourite.
I’m not a techie person, but yeah, camera.

Ex : Assuming Instagram is shutting down in 24 hours, what will you do?
I think the first response will be to have a panic attack, lots of anxiety, maybe tears, and freaking out. However, sooner or later, I’ll realize that’s how life is, and I’ll look for a way to move on. I can always make a living because I’m capable enough. So, at the end of the day, I would not be upset about it and start looking at my other options more seriously.

Ex : Do you have an industry mentor?
Santu Misra – our creative director at iDiva

Ex : Tell us about a project that you are the most proud of.
I’ve made some mini-films on Instagram, like short films of about 4-5 minutes. And there are 2 of them. I do another series on Instagram called I’m Rani. I have a big movie coming up, “Thank you for coming,” and I’m extremely excited about that.

Ex : Give us one or more hashtags describing you

Ex : What’s the first-ever trend that you hopped on?
I think when I used to do fashion blogs, I hopped on trends quite a few times.

Ex : What are the platforms you are active on – how do you decide what goes where?
Instagram and YouTube

Ex : What is your dream project?
I think a dream project for me would be something that I’ve written and am acting in or something I’m directing because that’s also something I would wanna explore at some point in life.

Ex : Advice you would like to give to budding creators.
They should take the influencer responsibility seriously because working on social media can be daunting, and you get a report card every day with every video you put out or every post you make. Also, it’s extremely important to keep your head up and not take everything people say to them on the platforms very seriously.
