Kashmiri youth shines in entertainment industry, launches his own music label

Rarely do we get to see ordinary people from Kashmir making it big in the entertainment industry, but a youth from Srinagar, Danish Kak, has made quite a name for himself as an actor, model and now, producing his music albums.
Danish started his career with modelling. He has worked with renowned music labels — T-series and Zee Music and has also launched his own music label, Yellow Sky Music.
Kak said after completing preliminary education in his hometown, he went to Delhi to study media studies and later to Mumbai, in 2010, to pursue his dream of becoming a director. However, fate had something else in store for the aspiring filmmaker.
“During my college days, I directed several short movies and did some certification courses. Some people said that I look good and nudged me to give a shot at acting and modelling,” he said.
Kak started his acting career with advertisements and got his first break in Bollywood with ‘Student of the Year’.
“My first audition was for the advertisement for a mobile company. ‘Student of the Year’ was my first film. It was a great experience for me to work with Dharma Productions. Being an outsider, I got a big exposure there. I shot for several months in India and abroad,” he said.
Kak shared that his “ultimate goal” is to create “good content for people”.
“For the past five-six years, I am producing music big labels like T-series, Zee. I also launched my own label, Yellow Sky Music. My ultimate goal is to produce movies, web series and create good content,” he said.
He further said that he wants to do “something for Kashmir and Kashmiris”. “I want to do something for Kashmir and Kashmiri youth. I am planning to shoot here in the near future to give exposure to youth. I will help them as much as I can,” he added.
Besides acting, Kak has also represented Jammu and Kashmir at the national level for cricket.
