The Delhi girl who has a double-major in Political Science and Economics from New York University feels very lucky to have landed up in this big Bollywood movie with a cast of stalwarts and working for her favourite director.
“I come from a conservative Punjabi family who couldn't believe a girl from their clan had an acting plan. My father is a businessman. But my mother’s family including my mother, is filled with academicians. Interest in acting is the last thing they expected from me,” says Ridhima who took off to NY for a degree before arriving in Bollywood.
Ridhima landed the role of Noorie, the gorgeous daughter of a rich industrialist on board a luxury ship, after only one audition. Personally she didn't think her audition went well but she was lucky that Zoya saw something that convinced her of Noorie. Auditioning is an art form in itself adds the young girl who claims to be terrible at it. The casting director can really make or break your audition and in this case Nandini Shrikent was instrumental in helping her get the part.
She already has a three film deal with the makers of Vicky Donor of which one is already complete and she is really excited to start work on the next.
With Zoya Akhtar as her mentor and guide, Ridhima Sud is all set to make her own path in Bollywood.
