Zakir Khan, José Cavaco on building content that connects
Cracking the code for success in an ever-growing content economy is not an easy task. Day 2 of YourStory's first-ever Creators Inc conference saw creators and influencers — from Kitchen Queen Kabita Singh to Indian internet’s first musical find Ritviz — reveal how they stay on the top of their game.
Comedian-poet-actor-sitarist Zakir Khan, in the opening fireside chat, spoke about his checklist for content creation, as well as the besharmi (shamelessness) that it takes to make dreams come true.
“Besharam hone ke faayde bahut zyada hote hain (there are many advantages in being shameless). I don’t hesitate to talk to anyone today, and I’m ready to get insulted 100 times if it means I get to learn something new," he quipped, in a heart-to-heart chat with Shradha Sharma, Founder and CEO of YourStory.
Bandra boy, RJ-VJ, and the man who had us rolling with laughter with Misheard Lyrics (remember, agar tum ninja ho?), José Cavaco has been a close witness to how Indian content has evolved over the last few years. At Creator’s Inc, he spoke about ghosts, Twitter, and trolls.
