The small and beautiful city of Udaipur is also the city full of talent. And to add-up to this talent pool, we have this young boy from the city of lakes, named, Jayant Golecha. A Screenplay Writer & Script Writer, Jayant has worked on music videos and short films which are streaming on some of the popular platforms. His short film, DEEN, is now streaming on Disney+ Hotstar – India’s largest premium streaming platform.
Talking about his journey as a writer, Jayant says:
“My journey as a writer began in 2017 when I was 18 years old and had just finished my 12th Board Exams. I posted a series some random stories on my Instagram from which I got amazing response.”
Jayant started enjoying writing and kept on sharing his work in the form of stories, poems, blogs, articles etc. on his social profile. He also started contributing in college magazines and other blog sites.
His passion for writing deviated him from his engineering studies which got reflected in his results which were not so good. By that time, Jayant had made up his mind to become a writer, so the results did make much of a difference to him.
To convince his family for taking writing as a career, he stepped in the field of commercial writing. He shared his work portfolio with a few production houses in Mumbai and got his first break as a Screenplay Writer for STAY by Cryosis. STAY is a music video released by a Mumbai based trio, Cryosis.
Jayant, who did his schooling from St. Paul’s School, Udaipur, has many successful projects under his sleeves including STAY, DEEN and an upcoming web series for the same production company, for which the script is done and the shooting will start in November.
Talking about aspirations, Jayant says,
“Name and fame is by-product of good and hearty work. I am here to stay and work hard. Whatever I have today, is from my hard work and dedication towards my talent. I look forward to better and more versatile and diverse work.”
