It is all about giving your best shot, extreme dedication and patience. And if all this comes from the heart sincerely, there is every reason for you to be a winner. Aseem Bajaj is one such achiever for whom years of hard work is finally paying him now. The multi-award winner cinematographer added another feather to his cap when he took home the coveted trophy of the best cinematographer at the Asian Festival for 1st films. The striking part about his achievement is that despite everything at his disposal he preferred to chalk out his own line. Well, he is the son of theatre veteran and noted emeritus of NSD, Ram Gopal Bajaj. Aseem pursued theatre under the aegis of group Act 1 set up by N K Sharma, another veteran. The list of alumni of this troupe reads Manoj Bajpai, Ashish Vidyarthi and several others, although he was involved mostly with backstage and production work. During his years of tryst with the stage, he learnt the basics of music and lighting under Ashok Bhagat. But this is what happened to him when he came to Delhi. Aseem decided not to pursue education beyond 12th and nurture a dream he saw when he was 9 years old, becoming an actor.
Chameli won him four awards including Filmfare and IFFA and in his own words, this is just the beginning for him. Here is wishing Aseem lots of luck.
