The actress, who makes her Bolly debut with Zoya’s Dil Dhadakne Do, has already bagged a three film deal with John and Shoojit’s production house.
Each year in Bollywood comes along a flurry of newbies trying to make their presence felt in the industry. 2015 is no different but there’s certainly one newcomer who’s caught our attention even before her film releases. The girl we’re taking about is Ridhima Sud.
She’s the face that Zoya’s launching in Dil Dhadakne Do but the actress has already signed a three film deal with Shoojit Sircar and John Abraham’s co-production. “She is working with A-listers in her first film but her performance will fetch her immense recognition and will get her noticed. She’s already been picked by John’s production house,” assured a source from the sets. And out of the three films,Sud has also finished shooting one, where she plays the lead.
Certainly happy about her progress, an excited Ridhima says, “Yes! I did. I’ve already finished shooting for the first one of the three films. It should be out this year after DDD. Shooting for that film was very different from shooting Zoya’s but it was fun nevertheless.” Ask her if she’s planned her third film already and she smiles back with a reply — “I am reading scripts for the future.”
While Ridhima is en route to stardom, here’s what you need to know about the debutante.
We’ve seen her before!
Now the name might not ring a bell but the face surely does! Being the face of several brands like Kaya and Ponds, Ridhima has already made her presence felt in the ad world. Add to that, a few ad campaigns she shot for Vodafone, Coca Cola, Titan and e-bay to name a few! Remember the pretty faced biker girl in the Ponds Dreamflower ad? You’ve hit the bull’s eye!
Not her maiden attempt!
Ridhima might take her baby steps in B-Town with Zoya’s Dil Dhadakne Do but she’s not a newbie when it comes to films. Prior to DDD, Ridhima has been a part of the production team of the Hollywood film Eat, Pray, Love and has also worked in the Oscar-nominated Ballad of Rustom. Not just that, she’s also been a part of the Dubai segment of The Owner that holds Guinness Book of World Record for being a film directed by 25 film makers!
Incidentally, Sud took acting lessons from Leonardo Di Caprio’s acting coach Larry Moss and guess who her classmate was — Tobey Maguire!
