Alankar Sodi born in Faridabad belongs to a middle class family. He doesn’t have any connection in Bollywood. His father was in Govt Job. He always had a pressure to build such a career where he can earn a good salary and help his family. After his graduation, he immediately started his career in sales and marketing of telecom products. A hard and smart work earned him a good position and salary in a good company.
“I was never satisfied with the career I opted but due to financial issues I have to do the job. For working almost 10 years, I saved money with which I can educate myself in the creative field. I was always interested to make career in the creative field so I opted Camera. After 9 years of my journey, now I say “Roll camera and action.” That’s my Life now,” says Alankar Sodi.
“After leaving the job, I did my Diploma in Camera from Marwah Studios, Noida and then moved to Mumbai to pursue Diploma in Direction. After doing Diploma in Direction from Balaji Telefilms Institute, I immediately started looking for work but as they say Film Industry also has a phase which is called “Struggle.” I also had a struggling phase.
Time was tough as there was no income, no work. I was in huge pressure both financially and mentally. But my wife “Bhawna” supported me a lot, she always had faith on me. She got a job which acted as lifeline for me and I could get some more time to make the way to the career I was looking for. There were tough times. Love Mishra, my ex boss and my best friend is a great man. He was always there when I was in need. I pray good for all those who was there in my tough times,” says Alankar Sodi

“I am planning to open a film Institute in Faridabad and help those who want to make career in Indian Film Industry. Soon, I will be producing Haryanvi Music Videos and will feature talent from Faridabad. I would request our Chief Minister – M L Khattar to make an environment where Haryana can favour content in Haryanvi Language” – Alankar Sodi.
