Ac­tor Adah Sharma, (above) who was last seen in Com­mando 2, says that she re­ceived a lot of un­wanted ad­vice from peo­ple when she en­tered the film in­dus­try. “There are peo­ple who want to change you and make you into a stereo­type of some­one who is suc­cess­ful. So they will tell you to make your hair in a cer­tain way be­cause some­one else (who is suc­cess­ful does it) has a par­tic­u­lar hairstyle or not wear some­thing be­cause some­one else doesn’t wear it. I feel it’s im­por­tant to be con­fi­dent about who you are,” says Adah, who made her Bol­ly­wood de­but with the film 1920 (2008).

The 27-year-old loves be­ing part of the in­dus­try be­cause of the love she has re­ceived from her fans. “If you like what you are do­ing ,then ev­ery­thing is worth it. When a movie re­leases, the au­di­ence loves you equally. They don’t care whose daugh­ter or son you are. With so­cial me­dia, you know their re­ac­tion to your work di­rectly,” says Adah. She has also done films such as Hum Hai Raahi Car Ke (2013) and Hasee Toh Phasee (2014). “My first film was a hor­ror movie and many peo­ple told me not to start with hor­ror. But I got to do a role where I could per­form. Some­times ac­tors don’t get to do that in their ca­reer.”
