Rid­hima in awe of John

She may be just one film old, but ac­tor Rid­hima Sud (above right) seems to have al­ready made space for her­self in the film in­dus­try. The ac­tor — who worked along­side stars such as Priyanka Cho­pra and Farhan Akhtar, among oth­ers, in film­maker Zoya Akhtar’s Dil Dhadakne Do — has bagged a three-film deal with John Abra­ham (right) and Shoo­jit Sir­car’s pro­duc­tion house. And Rid­hima just can’t stop gush­ing about John, with whom she has al­ready fin­ished shoot­ing for one of the films.

“John is a warm, kind man with a great work ethic. Although I didn’t learn many tricks of the trade from him, I learned the dy­nam­ics of work­ing on a set; the way John, the su­per­star, car­ries him­self. He is so hum­ble, and as a se­nior he took great care of us,” says Rid­hima, who hopes to im­bibe these qual­i­ties as she grows in Bol­ly­wood.

The 24-year-old Delhi girl adds the she’s in awe of ac­tors who not only con­trib­ute to the so­ci­ety with the films they make, but also cham­pion so­cial causes. “I’ve al­ways been inspired by Farhan Akhtar — he’s not only good at film­mak­ing and act­ing, but is equally fan­tas- tic when it comes to talk­ing about so­cial causes and spread­ing aware­ness about the same. I find that re­ally in­spir­ing. I’ve al­ways felt that as an ac­tor, it is one’s duty to be so­cially re­spon­si­ble,” Rid­hima signs off.
