Passion and the need to reinvent himself is what drives Himanshu Shrivastav, one of Moj’s best creators, to deliver back-to-back successful content. The glory has not come overnight but is a result of constant focus, hard work, and grit. He participated in Moj Superstar Hunt, India’s largest digital talent hunt, and was announced the winner in September 2021 which was judged by Remo D’Souza and hosted by Awez Darbar. He won INR 10 Lakh through the hunt and in the last 4 months, gained close to 1.7 million followers on Moj.
The journey for Himanshu has not been easy and he was surrounded by doubts and challenges but his go-getter attitude got him climbing the ladders of success. The small-town boy from Gairatganj, Madhya Pradesh came to Mumbai to fulfill his dream of becoming a dancer and an actor, and is currently teaching dance in an acting school in Mumbai. We can surely say that he has come one step closer to achieving his dream with Moj.
Dance was not something that was appreciated or accepted as a career option in his hometown so the struggle was intense. Initially, when he moved to Mumbai, it was difficult for him to make a living but he did not give up. He started learning theater and polished his dancing skills by joining multiple courses. He was lost when he started creating content on multiple platforms where he didn’t receive any traction but little did he know, joining Moj would be a gamechanger for him.
Winning the title has changed his life completely as he has become one of the finest creators on Moj. He recently got a chance to collaborate with multiple Bollywood celebrities for campaigns and activities like Mil Mahiya with Sonakshi Sinha, Bunty Aur Babli 2 with Siddhant Chaturvedi and Sharvari. If this was not enough, he has also done a TV commercial with Remo D’souza for Moj. Putting in a word for Himanshu’s creative prowess, Siddhant Chaturvedi claimed to have become his fan after doing a promotional video with him.
Expressing his heartfelt gratitude, Himanshu Shrivastav said, “I had a tough start, but I was certain that I wanted to pursue content creation and dance, so I constantly worked hard for it. While my content didn’t gain traction on some of the social media apps, luck turned in my favor when I joined Moj. I couldn’t believe it when I was announced the winner of the Moj Superstar Hunt. That was just the start, Moj gave me the platform and several opportunities for collaborations with Sonakshi Ma’am, Sharvari Ma’am and Siddharth Sir. I believe that my journey has now paced towards my goal, all thanks to Moj and I cannot wait to see what the world has to offer me.”
Himanshu has recently shot for his first music video in the 2nd week of January which is slated to release on March.
