Zoya asked me to con­tinue fo­cus­ing more on my in­ter­nal work when pre­par­ing for my char­ac­ter in a film

Rid­hima Sud, ac­tor

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.
