The ones bringing others to the headlines sometimes themselves fall under the limelight.

At a media interview, Ankit says –
“This has been a completely new experience for me. Usually I take interviews of politicians, film stars and other media celebrities talking about their experiences and today, here I am, talking about my own. I must admit acting is definitely not easy”
Web series Pardarshita : Transparency is based on Indian politics and India Against Corruption Movement which is directed by Chicago based NRI Munish Raizada.
When talking about this role at the web series, Ankit says “I cannot say much about my role however if you will watch the web series you will certainly appreciate it. It is a small but effective role”.
Ankit Yadav has played the role of a journalist in this web series. When asked as to what difference he could feel between real life and the reel life, Ankit says:
“There’s a lot of difference. In real life a journalist works independently without any pressure however while performing a role there are a lot of things to be kept in mind.”

The book further tells, how the journalism that has been in the hands of a few people has now reached in the hands of the common people.

Ankit’s second book is based on journalism in the time of COVID. This book tells, during pandemic when the whole country was forced to stay indoor, how journalists were risking their lives and were giving instant updates to the people sitting at home on television, mobiles and newspapers.
This book tells the story of a journalist coming from a normal background, his family who were all time tensed about him, and how he practiced the religion of journalism and performed his duty at that time.
