She sure got a big break with filmmaker Zoya Akhtar’s (inset) latest family entertainer, but it is the latter’s words of wisdom that actor Ridhima Sud (above) is following for a successful career. “I really look up to Zoya and take everything she says very seriously. She asked me to continue focusing more on my internal work when preparing for my character in a film. She also told me to choose my next film very carefully,” says Ridhima, who made her Bollywood debut as Noorie Sood in Akhtar’s Dil Dhadakne Do (2015), alongside actors Ranveer Singh, Farhan Akhtar, Priyanka Chopra, Anil Kapoor and Anushka Sharma.
The 25-year-old also consults Zoya over other matters of her career. “She gave me the freedom to call her and seek her advice whenever I need help. And I have been doing that as well. She is truly my ‘Movie Mamma’,” she says.
