Q1. How did @shubhamgaur09 come into the world of content creation

So, I was always a funny guy in the classroom, always enjoyed getting people’s attention, and always loved making people laugh. And yeah, I have been an attention seeker since school. And once the internet came in, I started watching other people’s videos like AIB and TVF back in 2013 and 2014. While I was watching all this content, I realized I could also crack similar jokes. Then, one thing led to another: I met a friend who was into videos, and he also helped me with the video part; that’s how I came into the world of content creation.

Q2. Describe your IPL association with LSG in one word

I would take more than one word to describe my IPL association with LSG: “A dream come true” because it has given me unparalleled access and an opportunity that I always craved, like watching cricket, not just watching but experiencing cricket from as inside as possible. So I’m living that dream there. 

Q3. Why the name- 2Sloggers, and how did the idea of this podcast come up? 

The name 2sloggers is a term used for someone who doesn’t play proper cricketing shots but just blindly slogs, like they play blind attacking shots. In Hindi, we have the term lapetu, which means someone who is not good at static cricket shots but slogs. He’s not a good batter, but he might end up scoring a few runs. So, all of us who are not professional cricket players but still play cricket are sloggers. So, it’s a term we thought many people would relate to. We are two sloggers representing all the other sloggers in the world, we are the voice of the people, and we speak our heart out like most of the fans in the country do. So, the name is also what people relate to, and the content we create is also what people relate to. That’s why we created our podcast called The 2Sloggers.

Q4. Your thoughts on creators now making a mark in OTT and Bollywood? 

I disagree here slightly. I don’t think a lot of creators have made their mark in OTT and Bollywood. It is a dream sold to them because they have been nurturing it forever. As a result, most of them end up doing mediocre stuff. Bhuban Bam has made a couple of hit shows. He’s one of those who has made a smooth transition from being a creator to delivering back-to-back hit shows on OTT, but it is still rare.

Q5. What other creators do you enjoy watching?

I enjoy watching all of these creators from Mumbai, the Ourange Juice gang, and all of the creators who shoot and produce their videos cinematically. They have such good cinematic sense, even if they only have to shoot a tiny video inside their house. I try my best to create content that is only like that.

Q6. As we look back on Exhibit’s 18-year anniversary, how do you see the content creation journey has evolved over the years?

I think my content creation journey has come full circle. I have created my own niche now. I now represent an IPL team. I get to work closely with the cricketers, which is a dream that I’m living. And if you talk about content creation in general, everybody is creating content today. So, almost everyone with creativity is now making full use of social media and putting it out there. A lot of people have become content creators over the years. And it’s just so good to see people pour their creativity out.
