“Music is my soul and music videos are an amazing way to tell short stories through music,” says Shalini Pandey

Every shot as I focused on the performance I could feel like they were getting the exact same thing from me and afterwards it was smooth fun, i really enjoyed the shot it was almost a divine feeling and after packing it i felt like i just came back from a long process of meditation Music is my soul and music videos are an amazing way where you tell stories. short stories through music and it’s so exciting to portray different characters in a medium of short story telling.
