BC Aunty (BheriCute Aunty) has become a viral sensation in this lockdown period

From an Engineer to internet sensation: Here's how Snehil Dixit Mehra aka BC Aunty (BheriCute Aunty) has become a viral sensation in this lockdown period.

" I always wanted to become a news anchor and I would practise reading news in front of the mirror as a child. Taking my father’s advice I completed my graduation first and became an Engineer then decided to follow my dreams. I was hired by a corporate in my final year of engineering. Two months before kick-starting my engineering career in Trivandrum, I decided to visit my elder brother in Mumbai. Coming to Mumbai was the tipping point of my story, I started interning at CNBC Awaaz then started as a trainee on a TV show “Anu ki ho gayi wah bhai wah” and I realised I have a natural flair for story telling and I had found my calling;  I had a difficult discussion with my Dad when I told him I want to pursue a career in Television industry. Luckily my Mom convinced my Dad and I permanently shifted to Mumbai in 2007. I worked with many big TV production houses like Endemol, DJ’s, Sphere Origins and I even joined Star India and I thought this is perfect what can be better than this! I was well established by 2014amongstcontemporaries and started freelance writing after I quit Star. In 2017 I was working with renowned Director Sidharth Sengupta on his upcoming webseries,Apharan for ALT Balaji and this was the first time in my life I entered Balaji Telefilms. It’s almost like a fairytale here on because here I met my childhood idol and my Guardian Angel Ms. Ekta Kapoor.

I was the Creative Director on the show and the Creative Head Vilas Kishore was the one who pushed me to play the one line role inApharan. I was reluctant in the beginning but Vilas was not giving up he convinced me saying if it doesn’t turn out well we will edit out the part. December 2018 the trailer of Apharan was out and my one line role was hit with the masses, so much so that they gave name to an un-named Character “BC AUNTY”.

All my friends pushed me to start the Instagram Page and I was hesitant as I am a woman in my late thirties, a mom to an 8 year old will I be making a mockery out of myself? But with support from my Husband Rahul Mehra I started the page and it took off on a very positive note. I was being liked and appreciated but the real shocker came when I did a video called “Class of 2025”  The idea of Class of 2025 came to me during a conversation with myhusband. I thought it wasn’t that funny, but later on I added funny surnames to it. And it became so funny that while reading it only, it was sounding hilarious. I shot and shared it with a couple of friends and everybody responded saying that it was going to go viral. Somebody shared this on my son’s school group saying ‘This lady is so funny’, and I had to reply that “This lady is Me.” This experience of going Viral yet again was surreal as this time I did everything on my own writing, shooting, performing and editing obviously there was big luck factor as my son Hridhaan had helped me with his cute voice in the video.

This lockdown has provided me a larger audience and I am grateful every moment. I am continuing to experiment with new characters and new content and I am amazed with the response coming from all parts of the country. I am also playing a parallel lead in ApharanSeaosn 2 which will be on ALT Balaji and Zee5, the amount of faith Ekta Kapoor Ma’am has shown is immense. She’s been encouraging all this while in the journey and I wish to make her proud. My video was shared by SonuSood and it was over the moon and now some Big Political Figures as well are sharing my videos. I would want to spread happiness and continue on being entertaining. If someone asks me how I did it; I always respond the formula is that there’s no formula just be persistent."
