Deepak Panth, Head of Productions, Sunshine Productions shares his journey from Uttarakhand to Mumbai, a peek into his dreams, goals and achievements.
Uttarakhand to Nepal and then to Mumbai ……..Can you tell us about it all ?
Uttarakhand mere Dadaji ko Virasat mein mila ; Nepal mere Papa ko ; Mumbai main aapne baccho ko dena chahata hun unki virasat mein so all over its a nice journey….

“More dreams are realized and extinguished in Mumbai than any other place in India” they say, what are your reactions to Mumbai as a city ?
Mumbai naa hota toh yakeenan main bhi aaj yahan nahi hota 🙂
How did Television happen? Could you share a few details on your projects ?
Ji, Shuru toh filmo se kiyaa thaa…TV mein aakar rukgaya. I was in direction before with Mr. Ravi Rai. Paisa kamaane aaya thaa Mumbai toh doston se suna thaa bachpan me ki film industry me bahut paisa hai, bas… usi paiso ko dhundhte dhundhte pahunch gaye Ravi ji ke paas. Television aur din ki shuruwat it’s the same koi farak nahi hai ……….
Collage k baad seedha yahi aagaya thaa
Kuch kitab padkar jo shayad kabhi naa seekh pata industry ne wo sab bhi dikhaya hai muje.
Sailaab, Thoda he Thode Ki jarurat hai, Teacher, Hero, Yeh pyar na hoga kam, Yes Boss, Son Pari, Ghar Ki Laxmi betiyaan, Maikaa, Kyun Hota hai pyar, Baba aiso var dhoondo, Devon ke dev Mahadev, Na bole tum na maine kuch kaha aur ab Paanch ………kuch projects hain jinpe maine kaam kiya hai!
There are so many people working behind the scenes to put an episode together, could you tell us on an average how many people work on the set in different areas? On a typical day what time does your day start and when does it end?
There are around 80- 100 people, main aapna bataun toh mujhe har insaan important lagta hai, har insaan ki aapni aapni capability hai.
Din ki shuruwat camera roll hone ke baad aur din ka end kabhi Hota hee nahi (a winking smiley)
Someone said, “Small wins, small projects, small differences often make huge differences” which small project of yours do you think created that huge difference?
No muje aisa nahi lagta infact small projects mein aur jyada mehnat karni padti hai taki wo chote naa lage and also small project mujhe aaj tak samajh nahi aaya ki hum kisko small bolte hai ; har cheez toh wahi hota hai even duration also is the same as others so small kaise huaa….
“When a gifted team dedicates itself to unselfish trust and combines instinct with boldness and effort, it is ready to climb”…..one such instance where you felt this did not work.
Ab kuch rapid fire ho jaaye………….
A movie unforgettable : Kagaz ke phool
A show most enjoyed : Only one Na bole tum na Maine Kuch Kaha
A character unforgettable : Guru Dutt Sahab from Pyaasa as Vijay
All time favorite song : ‘Yeh duniya agar mil bhi jaaye to kya’ from the same movie
Life’s motto : Aisa Kuch khash nahi – Kisan ka beta hun jo paliya kafi hai as ye barkarar rahe pyar milta rahe aur kuch khas nahi
A favourite quote : Har din ek naya quote (LOL)
