Where are you from?
I was born and bought up in Dubai but my origin is South Asia.
How long are you living in Washington Dc?
I came to Washington DC five years before. I moved from Dubai because I wanted to become an actor because I always dreamed of it. I am still struggling to be recognized as an actor, giving Auditions but not giving up.
You started off with 30 Instagram followers then how did you reach 1.7 Million followers? Tell me how did you do this? Tell us all the real story.
Yes, It was back in 2018 where I was going through a very tough time in my life. I had a lot of Depression and anxiety. One day I opened Instagram and then I saw a video, People from all around the world were posting a video on the song “KIKIKI do you love me” and they are dancing with a moving car. So I decided to make a video on it and I made that video and posted that on Instagram, After five days I noticed that a lot of Indian people were commenting on that video and I got 5,000 views. Then I said, Okay this is cool. I made one more video on a Bollywood song and posted it. Soon I was started getting attention and that’s how it started.
Do you post any motivational videos? How do you capture your audience? And in what age range do you cover?
It’s mostly teenagers and mostly my audience from Asia but I do all the stuff. I dance a lot. Where ever I am, I entertain people. Where ever I go I entertain them. Even I find McDonals I dance there. Sometimes I go to dancing school in Newyork and do some stuff there.
What kind of dancing do you do? Do you have a specific Dance?
I love dancing and I dance a lot. I won’t leave a chance to dance. I like dancing in Hip pop style and I often do it.
As many people follow and you also wanted to be an actor, what is your perfect actor job?
Right now whatever the opportunity comes in front of me I will grab it. I really wanted to be a part of “stranger things” a Netflix series, I love that series. And if you ask me any specific role to play I would say Johnny Depp in Pirates of the Caribbean. He is my Idol.
What would you tell your audience through your life experience? How would you tell them to inspire them to dream big?
I just wanted to say that, If your dream doesn’t kill you then it’s not big enough. Don’t be afraid of the space between your dream and reality. If you can dream it then you can make it. So dream big, don’t stop and you can do anything you want.
How to connect with you on social media?
People can follow me on Instagram @cemo_basen
What other characters do you see yourself besides Johnny Depp?
As I said any opportunity that comes I will take it. I will not think that I need to play this role and I should not play this role. If I have to be specific then it’s Tom Cruise from Mission Impossible. Everyone loves him and his character in Mission Impossible.
