Samarth who is embodied with magic talent has staged several magic shows both across the nation and worldwide countries. He was inspired by a magic show when he was thirteen-year-old, and learned the tricks with hard work and perseverance since then he did not look back.

Besides his hand skills, he is exploring new magic techniques, among them he had already staged magic stunts such as milk can escape and blind fold bike ride. He has done Limca Record by riding a motorcycle blindfold for ten-hour without food and water covering a distance of 310 kilometers from Mysore to Mangalore.

Nonetheless, Samarth staged a maiden show in Star Plus reality show “Kuch karke dikana hai.
He has been mentored by magician M P Hashil on hand skills and stunt master Satish Hemmady on adventurous stunts. “Satish Hemmady and Dean Gunnarsan are my role models in stunts and M P Hasheel in hand skills,” says Samart. He regrets that in India magicians do not get any great support.
“Magic was invented in India, while the magicians from other countries popularized it. The magic shows did not get popularity in the country and magicians does not get due encouragement. If the magicians from other countries perform magic stunts in India that makes major news, while if a Indian magician does it, none will care for it,” says Samarth.
