Bol­ly­wood just hap­pened to me: Ishita

Ac­tor Ishita Dutta (right), who made her de­but in Dr­ishyam (2015) as Ajay Devgn’s daugh­ter, did not in­tend to be a part of Bol­ly­wood. “I will al­ways con­sider my­self for­tu­nate that Hindi films came my way. I did not make a con­scious de­ci­sion to au­di­tion for the movies that I have worked in. I was busy with my TV shows and Kan­nada movies. Bol­ly­wood just hap­pened,” says Ishita, the younger sis­ter of ac­tor Tanushree Dutta. Hav­ing done a few Kan­nada films, Ishita feels that the big­gest bar­rier, while do­ing Hindi films af­ter re­gional cin­ema, is lan­guage. She says that this made her re­alise how dif­fi­cult it would be for ac­tors, who come from dif­fer­ent nonHindi speak­ing coun­tries, to act in Bol­ly­wood.

“I have so much re­spect for them be­cause it is dif­fi­cult to con­sciously re­mem­ber your di­a­logues and to keep a look out for cam­era an­gles, emo­tions and light­ing. It re­quires a lot of co­or­di­na­tion,” she adds.
