We recently got in touch with Sneha who is busy shooting Akshay Kumar starrer Sooryavanshi in Hyderabad with Rohit Shetty. Sneha exclusively spoke about her first official music video ever, what went behind shooting it and tips from her “teacher” Rohit Shetty.

When asked her about the entire process of making the music video and what actually went behind it, Sneha said, “We had 4 setups and we shot straight for 16 hours and got done with the music video. 25-30 dancers were present for the shoot along with Aastha and Akasa. Akasa had to fly from Delhi to Mumbai to shoot for the video. It took everyone one week of constant rehearsal.”
Sneha explained how she came on board. She said, “It all started when Sony Music approached me with this idea of a music video and I came on board.” “This is just the beginning, many more to come,” she added.
Sneha also revealed that she has done videos before also. She said, “This is my first official music video. Earlier I had done a few with singer Sona Mohapatra.”

When asked if she is interested to direct short films, Sneha said, “Absolutely”.
On her bond with Rohit Shetty and if she took advice from his for Naagin, Sneha said, “Of course, every piece of work that I do has to go through him. He is like my teacher. This is my 11th year with Rohit Shetty Picturez. So, if he does not find something good enough, I don’t do it. Every line of work that I do, if he finds it good, I go ahead.”
We wish the director all the very best for her future projects!
