Who is Chethana Ketagoda?

I’m a 30 year old lawyer, Hindi language teacher, senior dubbing and commercial voice actor. I’m also a digital content creator on five platforms – TikTok, Youtube, Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. I juggle all these professions on a daily basis, so that’s pretty much my life. Apart from that, my hobbies include coming home to my room, traveling, watching movies, dancing, reading, journaling – there’s a lot of things I enjoy doing.

How did you discover TikTok and when did you start creating content on the platform?

I discovered TikTok in 2016 while doing my LLB degree, when the app was previously known as Musical.ly. There was also another app called Dubsmash, but I preferred Musical.ly since you could experiment and play around with more sounds, music and funny skits. I absolutely love dubbing and I’ve been in the industry for the past 20 years, so I found it incredibly fun being able to create content in this regard.

I think because of my work stress and study stress, TikTok was one of my main stressbusters at the time. It’s also really great because it doesn’t consume too much time to make content and you get to be 100% creative in all sorts of ways.

How do you juggle between so many professions and creating content on TikTok?

Since I am professionally a digital content creator, whether I’m travelling or at home, I always have whatever I need to create a good piece of content. I have all my gadgets, such as my tripod and my light. If I don’t have the light, I make use of natural light.

I always plan my content, but sometimes I also have spontaneous moments where I just go for it. It can be inside my car, during my shoots, it can be anywhere. But I do always make it a point to plan ahead and shoot about 5-6 original content pieces at a time. I don’t mind the location to be very honest. I would shoot my content even on the road if I felt like it. So I always end up having excess content – it’s just a matter of editing and uploading it.
