The session commenced on a rib-tickling note, as Gaurav enthralled the students by giving them a glimpse of his ability to switch between various quick-witted characters portrayed by him. Rahul Puri (Head of Academics at WWI) moderated the session and asked Gaurav about his journey in the entertainment industry, to which the latter had some really interesting inputs to offer. “Initially, I received a lot of criticism and hate for my videos, but I never gave up. I believe, the more you work, the more hearts you win. Of course original content works, but do what you are good at and have faith in yourself”, Gaurav advised the students. The session ended with an interactive Q&A, where the ace comedian touched upon the art of content creation and the power of social media in today’s digital age.

Providing some valuable insights about the world of digital media, Gaurav Gera said, “I think social media has a lot of potential in terms of getting noticed and creating a revenue channel. You don’t have to necessarily be a comedian to become famous; you could be a sketch artist, a singer or even a traveller to earn money through social media platforms. I see lot of potential and creativity in the students of WWI, and I feel extremely happy and honoured to be here.”
