Ishwak Singh is getting ready to make a lot of public appearances because his performances keep getting good reviews online. He is expected to appear in the second instalment of Rocket Boys and Paatal Lok. He will also appear in Bas Karo Aunty and the spy thriller Berlin.

The final film, a Nitesh Tiwari creation, is a well-known one for Singh. The actor told Mid Day that the filmmakers and all the other masters he has worked with so far are amazing in that they give individuals power. The actor used to work on the movie with Nitesh, but in the end, Nitesh let Ishwak do whatever he wanted with the character. The actor also said that Nitesh writes with integrity, relatability, and thorough investigation.

Singh has no problem being referred to as an "OTT actor," unlike actors who are renowned figures in one business and dislike being called actors who only work on that platform. He said that it fits into the transition, in his opinion. His friends would introduce him as a theatre actor when he first came to Mumbai. However, Ishwak disagrees with these categorizations. He identifies as an actor, but in any case, people are accustomed to categorising and bracketing others.

Singh starred as a young, idealistic cop in the crime thriller series Paatal Lok, which premiered on Amazon Prime Video in 2020. In the same year, he had a small part in Unpaused, which was made by Amazon Prime Video. He played Vikram Sarabhai in the Abhay Pannu-directed Sony LIV web series Rocket Boys in 2022.

The next time Singh will be seen, it will be in the spy thriller Berlin with Aparshakti Khurana and opposite Mahima Makwana in Bas Karo Aunty. The producers have not yet announced the release dates for either of the films.
