Sangay shared in details with The Moviean about his upcoming film Singye, about his bodybuilding career and much more. Find out what we asked him and his straight forward answers below:

The Moviean: Tell us about your film Singye?
Sangay Tsheltrim: Singye, is an action-drama movie where we showcase the heroism of the Royal Bhutan Police and their service to the Nation. I don't want to reveal much about the movie at this point in time.

The Moviean: How did Singye happen?
Sangay Tsheltrim: A Few years back, my friend Mr Paljor Gyabak, Co-producer and Mr Sonam Dorji, the Director, of Singye, approached me to act in an action movie. I was very busy with my bodybuilding career then, but I gave them my word that once I am done with it I will definitely pick up acting. So, after the international championship in 2017, I decided to hang up my posing trunk and started working on this film.

The Moviean: Any major obstacles faced while filming?
Sangay Tsheltrim: The only obstacle I personally faced was that we didn't have an action director nor a professional action choreographer. We also didn't use many props for fights.
While shooting I got injured a couple of times. My first injury during the shoot was when I got hit in my right eye. Another time, in a fight scene where a tube light breaks on my bare back, I got a bad cut on my back. These were minor injuries for me and I thoroughly enjoyed each and every moment of our action scenes. Now when I watch them I get so much satisfaction and it was all worth it.

The Moviean: Tell us about the real Sangay. How are you in person, what do you do when you are not shooting?
Sangay Tsheltrim: I am a soldier so I live a very disciplined life. When I take up any task I need to do it perfectly and dedicate myself wholeheartedly.
At present, on professional front, I am engaged in a real estate project where I am building over hundred flats in the capital city. I also have a SsangYong Vehicle distributorship in Bhutan. On top of all that I own the Muscle Factory gym in Bhutan. I'm in the process of creating the biggest fitness centre in the country called the Big Muscle Factory which should be completed by the end of this year.
As for my daily routine goes I wake up at 6 am and I go for my morning cardio to the gym. After breakfast, I go to my project site and I spend my day there. Around 5 pm I hit the gym for my workout and then I get back home and spend my time with my wife and family. I don't go out nor socialize much.

I always had a dream to build a good body since my childhood days. I started lifting weights when I was in NDA. With the blessings from His Royal Highness, I got an opportunity to take part in the National Championships in 2012 where I stood 4th in overall. I had a dream to get a medal for my country on an international platform. For that, I thought over 100 times and finally decided to sacrifice the most precious career in my country and resigned in 2013. In 2014 I won the first Bronze Medal in Asian Championship, Macau. In 2015, I won Gold and a Silver from Uzbekistan and in 2016, I won Gold and Bronze in Bhutan for the Asian Championship.

Coming from a Military background one thing was very clear, nothing is impossible. I found out that if you have a dream, work for it and dedicate yourself 101%, one day you will achieve it. I use all my military principles now with my work and whatever I do. Discipline, dedication, hard work, punctuality, command, and control are few basics principles that I use as an actor or a businessman or an athlete.

In Bhutan, I will only work with my present director Sonam Dorji and the Director Of Photography Biplab Doley not because I don't like the other directors and DOPs. It's just that our taste is similar and we gel together very well.

Infact, if I get an offer in India I would love to try because I can speak very fluent Hindi. It is my dream to work with few Bollywood stars especially Salman Khan as he is my favourite actor since my childhood.
