Actress Nidhhi Agerwal, who is enjoying a successful run at the Tamil and Telugu box offices, says she has had moments of self-doubt so often.
Speaking to IANS, Nidhhi, who will soon be starring in superstar Pawan Kalyan’s until the next day, says: “What happens is when you’re an actor, or you’re on social media and meet so many people, everyone has an advice to give. , and often the advice is completely opposite to each other. You get confused. Very prominent people also give you advice and you don’t know who to listen to.”
Nidhhi, who made her Bollywood debut in the 2017 Tiger Shroff starrer Munna Michael, added: “I’ve had moments of self-doubt. A really strong moment was when, right before a certain movie, I said to myself that if this movie I don’t think I’m doing it right. I’ll take it as a sign from God that the movie has become my biggest hit. Sometimes it hits you, but you have to stand up.”
Luck plays a part in showbiz, she admits. “Honestly, in this area, no matter how good or bad you are, being lucky is very important. Some movies are great on script, but when you see the finished product it looks slightly different. Others feel average on paper, but when you see them on screen, they surprise you. I believe 90 percent is luck.”
Bollywood is working more closely than ever with Telugu and Tamil filmmakers. Directors such as Sandeep Vanga, Vishnuvardhan and Gowtham Tinnauri will direct the upcoming Hindi films.
Speaking of the beginnings of a cross-dependency between the Hindi, Tamil and Telugu film industries, Nidhhi says: “In the end, everything is business. I don’t look at my work that way, but if you look at things from the perspective of a production house, his company and when they see south movies making those kind of songs it means something my last telugu movie brought in Rs 120 crore So when they see south movies making money and a state gives so much business then they believe their content might be good.”
Nidhhi, who appeared in films such as Mr. Majnu, iSmartShankar and Savyasachi has worked, gives the directors high praise.
“I really think every movie is a director’s vision and we have directors in the south to thank for giving that large-scale field to movies. Where you can see it’s a big movie, that has great CGs and it’s big makes it seem,” she says.
