Priya Malik on becoming a writer: I wanted to be very sure about my journey from stage to page

The audience gasps whenever actress-poet Priya Malik comes on stage to recite her poems. And she’s set to improve her game this time around, as her first book as an author will hit the shelves next year.

“I was offered the book in 2019, when Aditi Maheshwari of Vani Prakashan saw me perform, and emailed me regarding writing the book. But at the time, I didn’t think I was ready to do it,” Malik recalls, adding, “To take my journey from stage to page, I wanted to be very confident. I had some viral poems back then, but wanted to improve my craft before bringing out my book. Also, I wanted to do more stage performances. Now I feel I am at the most appropriate point in my life to bring out my book.

Ask her about the pressure that comes with the author tag, and how challenging the process of becoming one was, she equates it to writing poetry for herself.

“There’s really that pressure when you’re holding a physical copy of your work, however. This book has been running around in my head since 2019. I always used to say that I had to be completely pregnant in order to make poetry. Is.” They are always in my mind and then one day I type them out,” says Malik. And so is the case with his first book, as it has been with his “head, heart, body and soul” for the past three years.

Talking about the subject she has chosen for her debut book, Malik says it is about ‘love’ and it is something one can never get tired of.

“What makes it special is that it talks about the Sufi concept of ishq (love). Sufi love has different stages – you have attraction, infatuation, faith, worship, love, passion and then comes death. That is the death of the ego because then you become one with the person you love. The book is divided into seven parts and each one is beautiful,” shares Malik, hoping that readers will enjoy reading and experiencing that journey as well.

While as a poet, Malik has given many memorable stage performances, as an actor too, he showed his potential in projects like Sheer Qorma and Yeh Kaali Kaali Aankhen. Ask her to choose between the two and without any doubt she chooses the poem.

“I definitely consider myself a poet first. Poetry came before anything. I’ve been reciting poetry since I was five. I enjoy acting, but I’m a little selective about who I I take up acting projects from Kavita will always be my first and last love,” she whispers.
