Life has never been certain and what the covid pandemic did in the last two years is drive home the reality of our very existence. You need to cope, adapt and fight to survive. Not just for yourself or your family or even your society. The world has to fight together with the belief that there is a bright turn at the corner.

`Life can be beautiful’ by the multi-talented and creative Sunil Gupta goes beyond the fight, to prove that positivity supported by unequivocal love can change the world.

Despite this being his maiden novel, the passionate Sunil virtually knocks it out of the park to strike a chord with every human heart in the world.

India’s message of love, this `cutest love story ever’ by the very kind hearted Sunil is basically the beliefs he stands for. The beliefs that he has showcased over the years through his splendid very well received work. The all heart Sunil not just writes with passion but is also a class act when it comes to directing, producing, composing music and also being a poet and lyricist.

Sunil’s patriotic music video “Ananya Bharat” has been much appreciated on Youtube. The diversity of India and the unity that lies within it is beautifully brought forth in it. Sunil has written the lyrics, composed the music and also directed the music video.

Women empowerment was the subject he chose for his short film `Ladke Rote Hain’. He also chose to not just write but also produce and direct it, finally putting it up on YouTube for all.

Human psychology and emotions are the highlights of the much appreciated thriller

`Woh Pehli Baar’, a feature film written, directed and produced by Sunil. Sunil was again in the thick of things even writing the lyrics and making sure the music was spectacular. Released on MX Player, the movie trended, enjoying the top spot.

Not one to rest on his laurels, Sunil decided it was time to move further ahead and explore a bigger canvas. Emerging from covid pandemic, he rose with his labour of love, `Life Can be Beautiful’. The objective this time was to take the message globally of what India is all about, the love that it professes, the love that brings a smile on every face, the love that can transform life as we know it.

The straightforward man that he is, Sunil has a very simple explanation for his novel. “It is a cute love story, but unlike others, this one is a touching and emotional love story of a father and his 6 year old daughter. It is about the roller coaster life that has happiness destined for it.”

He explains, “I want to inspire people to change the way they look at all things, whether relevant or not. If you want to succeed, challenges should be dealt with positivity and not seen as a burden.”

Stresses Sunil, “”The global message in this truly Indian love story is that love is universal. The story shows how mass happiness becomes a reality through this most significant catalyst proving its strength and power. The novel is all about what love can achieve, how it touches every heart and how our mindset and that of the world can be transformed.”

The transformation is already visible if one goes by the inquiries coming in to adapt the novel for the big screen.

Sunil of course is not stopping at having got the novel in public domain. Reveals Sunil, “The novel is about a movement to make this world a better place to live. I am hence sending this book of love to the leaders of the world who are at the helm of their countries with the power to make a difference. Embassies and even United Nations will get it. I am of course starting it with Shri Narendra Modiji, our prime minister who will be given the novel first.”

Sunil has also decided to once again lead by example. He is donating 51 per cent of the royalty from the proceeds of the novel to charity. Orphanages are of course his first priority.

Signs off Sunil, “The power of be happy is inherent in each of us. It is a state of mind. It is high time we realized that power to ensure universal happiness.”
