Aman Singh, who was a part of international TV show ‘Narcissists of New York City’, further says, “US being uncharted terrain for me, brings a level of excitement that pushes me to try and be the best version of myself in front of the camera. But I think having this unique opportunity to shuttle between both industries helps me open up facets of myself as an actor which perhaps I may not have been able to achieve otherwise.”
While in USA to scout for colleges for his MBA, Aman Singh was scouted by a talent agency. They signed him on as a model and there has not been any turning back since then. Adds Aman Singh, “I wanted to hone my skills and got into the Lee Strasberg Theatre And Film Institute in New York City. I was already travelling all over the world for work with my Talent Agency. I was into fashion circuit of New York. I had already walked the ramp in Fashion Week in New York and that’s when I started getting calls for acting. Hence the decision to join acting school and it did give me loads of confidence.”
He got a role in ‘A Sketch of New York’, a long-running satirical sketch comedy show that performs in the heart of Manhattan's theatre district. Made up of 18 individual sketches rooted in classing old-school New York City traditions dating back to vaudeville and beyond, A Sketch of New York mocks the absurdity of lives in the capital of the world. Life, love, work, play, and the realities of city living are skewered as actors put on stage the absurdities, they all live with, and try to paint a picture of what New York nowadays is really like. Aman is recurring cast member of this theatre ensemble.
Recently Aman Singh was cast as Victor in a staged reading of the popular feminist play ‘Yerma’, originally written by Federico García Lorca. Talking about it, he says, "This role left a deep impression on me. It was one of those roles that explore the depths of human condition." Aman Singh has done a film ‘Look In My Eyes’ for which he won Best Supporting Actor award at the Cult Film Festival. He admires Amitabh Bachchan and Al Pacino when it comes to acting. Aman Singh says, “Acting comes to me naturally and I feel Big B and Al Pacino are the two actors who are very natural. They perform each and every role with so much ease and comfort. That’s what inspires me. I look upto them as an actor.”
