Film­maker JP Dutta’s daugh­ter Nidhi Dutta ( left) is all set to make her act­ing de­but in Bol­ly­wood. And although she has as­sisted her fa­ther on var­i­ous films and was even a cos­tume as­sis­tant on Um­rao Jaan (2006), it’s be­ing an ac­tor that was her dream. “I love be­ing in front of the cam­era. It just makes me so happy. I have worked with my fa­ther in dif­fer­ent ca­pac­i­ties, and then I re­alised act­ing is my call­ing,” says Nidhi, who will be seen as a travel blog­ger in her up­com­ing film.

How­ever, she says that bag­ging this movie, which is be­ing made un­der her fa­ther’s ban­ner, wasn’t a con­scious de­ci­sion. “I didn’t work to­wards get­ting the role. In fact, I along with the team, had been au­di­tion­ing peo­ple for the role, but noth­ing seemed to click. Then, Ajit (Ajit Sodhi, her co-star in the film) said I was the per­fect fit. So, that’s how the film came to me,” says the 25-year-old.
