Bulb­bul’s Tripti Dimri on fight­ing her ca­reer fears

Khaleej Times - City Times - - FRONT PAGE - Bulb­bul Bulb­bul

Tripti Dimri’s per­for­mance in Bulb­bul, the new hor­ror film that was re­leased dig­i­tally, has been widely ac­claimed. The ac­tress has opened up on fight­ing her fears and stepping out of her com­fort zone to be­come an ac­tress.

Tripti took to In­sta­gram on Mon­day to talk about the same. The ac­tress also spoke about the dif­fer­ence be­tween her real-life per­son­al­ity and her on-screen char­ac­ter in Bulb­bul.

“Grow­ing up, I was ex­tremely dif­fer­ent from the char­ac­ter I play in Bulb­bul. I was not an ex­tro­vert at all! She’s cu­ri­ous and ex­citable and I was the op­po­site of it. I was very shy and I never felt com­fort­able par­tic­i­pat­ing in school func­tions and ac­tiv­i­ties. I even hated get­ting doubts cleared in class be­cause I didn’t like hav­ing all those eyes on me.”

“Some­thing changed when I got to col­lege. I re­alised it’s time I take to the stage and face the world. I be­came more in­volved in col­lege ac­tiv­i­ties and even joined a mod­el­ling agency, which turned out to be the door that opened th­ese op­por­tu­ni­ties for me. I re­mem­ber putting off giv­ing my first au­di­tion be­cause the thought of fac­ing the cam­era ter­ri­fied me. Sur­pris­ingly, I did well and I got se­lected, which led to my de­but movie Poster Boys.”

“From be­ing un­com­fort­able with so many eyes on me to now feel­ing at home on a set, I’ve come a long way. I am here be­cause I chose to fight my fear and get out of my com­fort zone. I chose to trust my­self and stopped lis­ten­ing to my in­se­cu­ri­ties. I’m still ner­vous in new sit­u­a­tions, I still fum­ble but I now know you can al­ways over­come those fears and give it your all.”

“Re­mem­ber, fear is just a feel­ing and no feel­ing is per­ma­nent. Fight it even if you fail. You can al­ways get back up and try again. I’m glad I chose to fight,” Tripti wrote on In­sta­gram.

She also shared a photo of her char­ac­ter Bulb­bul’s child­hood (played by child ac­tor Ruchi Ma­ha­jan) and the grown up Bulb­bul (played by her­self) in the hor­ror flick. Tripti also shared a throw­back photo from her child­hood.

Mean­while, ne­ti­zens are de­mand­ing to #Boy­cottnet­flix on Twit­ter as they find the Ben­gali folk song Kalank­ini Radha used in the film and its English sub­ti­tles of­fen­sive to Hindu re­li­gious sen­ti­ments.
