Actor Nidhhi Agerwal says she was aware she would have to slog it out in the industry as she didn’t come from a filmi family
Having been cast opposite Tiger Shroff in a project like Munna Michael, Nidhhi Agerwal’s first film was nothing short of a dream debut in Bollywood. Unfortunately, the Sabbir Khan film tanked at the box office, and her performance failed to leave a mark.
Fans and viewers might surmise that not hailing from a film family, Nidhhi was unmindful of the road that lay ahead, but she holds firm that she was aware of the hard yards she would have to put in.
“I was well aware that I am just a normal girl and it’s not like filmmakers are waiting to offer me films. I knew I was making my debut opposite a star kid, who was already famous, and it would be difficult for me to get noticed,” says Nidhhi.
The 24-year-old actor admits that though she once believed that the road would get smoother once she had made her debut, things turned out to be quite the opposite. “I used to think once I got a movie, life will be better. But once you get a film, there’s only more pressure, stress, and judgment,” she says.
Asked if she felt nervous when she faced the camera for the first time, Nidhhi says, “When I did a lot of retakes, I used to say sorry to my director and co-actors. I felt bad because while giving a shot, I would just forget facing the camera, or knowing the right angle. Otherwise, I was confident and happy in that space,” recollects Nidhhi.
