“It is a nice feeling that people have liked our film but I have not seen the film myself so I don’t know how to react to the praise. I want to show the film to my parents, brothers and my friends. It is weird and surreal,” Singh said.

The documentary, presented by Phantom Films and released through Globalistan, has created buzz for its humorous take on a serious situation and Singh has been praised for his performance but unmoved by the adulation, the young man says he would never leave his high-risk job for a life of glamour.
“I will never leave Kanpur and my work of ‘katiyabaazi’ for acting but I would not mind working in a film if somebody comes to Kanpur,” Singh said.

‘Katiyabaaz’, a National-award-winning documentary, released in cinemas on August 22.
