a well es­tab­lished name in the In­dian tele­vi­sion in­dus­try, has im­pressed au­di­ences by suc­cess­fully por­tray­ing char­ac­ters of Priya in Maryada: Lekin Kab Tak?, Sav­itri in Sav­itri and Nisha in Woh Apna Sa. Apart from TV se­ri­als, Rid­dhi has been a con­tes­tant on pop­u­lar tele­vi­sion re­al­ity shows such as Nach Baliye and Fear Fac­tor: Kha­tron Ke Khi­ladi. With no sec­ond thoughts in mind, it can be said that Rid­dhi’s un­quench­able en­thu­si­asm has helped her be­come a prom­i­nent tele­vi­sion ac­tor in In­dia. Born and brought up in New Delhi, Rid­dhi came to Bom­bay to pur­sue higher ed­u­ca­tion. Lit­tle did she know that life had other plans. She was drawn to­wards the world of glam­our and her life soon took a 180-de­gree U-turn! De­but­ing in Jhoome Jiya Re in 2007, Rid­dhi has made mod­est and hon­ourable progress as an ac­tor. Be­fore en­ter­ing act­ing, Rid­dhi has had also the ex­pe­ri­ence of work­ing as a co-pro­ducer on a pop­u­lar TV chan­nel, Zoom. She has not only worked in front of the cam­era, but has also worked be­hind it and has def­i­nitely had the best of both the worlds! This month, our Cover Story talks about the el­e­gant and gor­geous Rid­dhi Do­gra, who has en­chanted the au­di­ence with her mes­mer­iz­ing beauty and ever-grow­ing tal­ent for nearly a decade. In an ex­clusive chat with Rid­dhi, Ci­tadel sheds light on her tryst with the tele­vi­sion in­dus­try, life, and loads more... Com­ing to in­te­ri­ors and the world of de­sign, a bun­ga­low has to be de­signed with pre­ci­sion; it re­quires a lot of hard work and ex­pe­ri­ence. Ar.

Our Fash­ion col­umn show­cases haute cou­ture de­signed by Nivedita Saboo, who has made Pune proud with her stel­lar work and in­cred­i­ble designs!
