This world is full of unlimited possibilities, and with that, we may have many options to choose in our life. However, when it comes to following your love and passion, then nothing can stop you from achieving the great heights of success. Navneet Pathak, a 21-year boy who dropped out of college to follow his passion of becoming an artist, is a living example. Let’s have a look at his fantastic journey of fulfilling his artistic dreams through his YouTube channel Chu Chu Ke Funs.
The Birth of a Prodigy
In 1999, a boy with immense talent took birth on 29th March in a humble middle-class family of Agra. As if his parents already predicted the ability of their son, the baby was named Navneet, whose talent was supposed to remain new forever. He completed his schooling from Agra Public School.
In his growing years, he always found the love and support of his family with him. This helped him to flourish as a really strong person with the belief of fulfilling his dreams.
The Dream of a Future
As the years pass by, the boy was leading a regular college life without any hint of the future. But, as rightly said, good people always have an angel in their life which guide them on the right path towards their goals. Even before Navneet realized his talent, one of his friends did. His childhood friend, Amber Sharma saw the potential of acting in his young pal and then gave him the required push to start the journey of theatre.

It always helps an artist to grow and flourish if he has a talent, and people are around to back him up. Same happens with Navneet, and without much ado, he packed his bags and left for the city of dreams, Mumbai, with a desire of entertaining the world.
Overcoming obstacles is the price of dreams
Survival in the new city can never be easy, and this was one of the first learning for the young lad. Along with putting all his efforts towards acting, Navneet was also doing some usual jobs for his survival. He did everything he could, beginning from doing photography at wedding events for a mere Rs 300 to preparing plays at schools and colleges for their annual functions. All this continued, however, in 2011, one fine day, he found himself at a stage and from there on, all he could do was act and perform.

Dreams are never free, and they come with the hefty price of sweat and blood. Where most people crumble with pressure so immense that they can hardly breathe, this talented actor from Agra began bagging awards.
Starting his journey as a theatre artist back in 2011, received two national awards in 2014 and 2015 in the National Theatre Festival. Finally, his dream of performing and entertaining people come true, and he was there enjoying every moment of it to its core.
A journey of hardships before success
While taking his dreams of entertaining people to the next level, Navneet realized the potential of YouTube. But sadly, even all his hard work and money invested in making YouTube videos were landing in vain. Being a newcomer to this domain, many of his videos got flagged as inappropriate due to copyright issues.
The best part of Navneet was his commitment and dedication to fulfill his passion. He always believed in his parent’s teaching that we couldn't achieve success without proper hard work and discipline. This is how he worked harder and took a step ahead towards his success.
A Beautiful Consequence of Dreams
