When and why did you put on a Spiderman costume for the first time?
"When I was in College, I started my own little company where I used to work with different brands and help them get sales by managing their digital marketing strategies along with using my own personal influence with my followers. For that, these companies usually sent me custom-made products to review and create related content with it, so I could try and insert those with my regular content and get them a lot of activity. Some of these companies made superhero suits; and being a comic book fan, I didn't really mind wearing whatever they sent me. Funny thing - Since I'm really skinny, it took them a lot of time to custom size leather/costumes with materials other than lycra and spandex. Since they wanted to send me suits quite often, they started bombarding me with Spider-Man suits. As of now, I own more than 20 different varieties of Spider-Man, all thanks to these companies."
Apart from spiderman what other costumes do you like getting into?
"I love getting into all kinds of costumes! In fact, Spider-Man was my last choice! I really like putting on costumes that have multiple layers/parts and accessories, it's fun. My favourite would be the Flash suit if I had to choose."
What kind of content do you make for your followers with these costumes?
"In the past, I used to make normal, super cringey and awkward reviews where I simply spoke about the product and its quality and then showed myself wearing it. I had less freedom of choosing the type of content since the brands I worked with had certain restrictions and I could not add a lot. Even though the content worked pretty well, I was not satisfied with it, since every second person was into creating a similar type of content. As time passed, I became frustrated with my content and simply decided to make what I wanted. All of my videos include a surreal aspect and have a meme theme attached to it. I don't speak about the product at all, it's just there in front of your face the whole time. The only time you see me actually advertise the product, is usually at the end, where I just attach links to their costumes/props/any other product used."
What is the weirdest thing someone has asked you to do in a costume?
"Oh, let's not go there! I've been asked to do a lot of weird things that have made me go from "lol" to "wait, are you for real?" Let's just say certain brands and people have very very weird video requests and even weirder kinks!"
How is your experience at Children's hospitals?
"When I saw the kids for the first time, I was heartbroken by the condition they were in. But meeting sick children and lifting their spirits is one of the most beautiful feelings I've ever felt. I crave for more opportunities like these!"
What kind of food does the Indian Spiderman like? Is he a big foodie?
"I am definitely a foodie! I love gorging on anything that is Italian or Mexican. I also love trying out different kinds of Iced Teas. However, Indian street food has to top the list for me. I love street meat like Shawarma and I love basics like Chole Bhature!"
