Ridhima Pandit let go of Bollywood offer for a television show
Unlike many Tv actors, who eventually make their way to films or aspire to act in them, actor Ridhima Pandit (above) of Bahu Hamari Rajni Kant fame, is in no rush. Ask her if she’s making an effort to bag a film offer, Ridhima says, “I’ll embrace it with open arms, if it comes my way. Currently, I’m happy doing a Tv show. I got a film offer after my Tv show gained an instant popularity. But it would have been unfair to leave something that gave me my first break and the fame.”
She feels Tv offers a stable career as compared to films and maybe that’s why she isn’t looking for a shift at present. “Tv is a much secure place than Bollywood. You’ve a steady income and can create your own niche. Task is to maintain it and wisely choose your next projects, and not lose your standing. The life of a female lead actor on Tv is such that there’s no time for anything else,” she says.
While most actors do multitasking, Ridhima feels otherwise. There’s no desperation to run after work. “I won’t push myself to something, which isn’t worth it. If I’ve to do something, which is eye grabbing, I’d love to host a show. That’s on my checklist,” she says.
What about participation in a show like Bigg Boss? “I wonder why Tv actors vouch for it and look forward to it. I’m not spontaneous, so can’t put my life on public display. I’m a private person. Despite being on social media, I don’t see myself in front of the camera all the time. I’ve mood swings and I control them all the time,” she says.
