Actor Srishti Jain, who is part of Ravindra Gautam and Pradeep Kumar’s Paperback films’ Meri Durga, says that she wanted to be an actor since she was six years old. The actor adds that it was Kareena Kapoor Khan who inspired her to enter the field.
“The acting bug bit me when I was six years old watching Kareena Kapoor Khan dance with Tusshar Kapoor on the song Maine Koi Jaadu Nahi Kiya. I wanted to be just like her and as I grew up I realised that it can happen for real,” she beams.
Srishti, who was previously seen in Suhani Si Ek Ladki, says that she is thrilled to play the lead role in Meri Durga. “It’s a huge thing for an actor to get a good role when you are not very established. It’s everyone’s dream to work with Star Plus and I was very happy when I got the character of Krishna on my first show as the parallel lead and a lead role in my next show Meri Durga,” she says.
Talking about working with Ravindra, she says, “Working with Ravindra is an amazing experience. There are so many things that I learnt from him.”
“I get along well with Paras, who plays the character of Prince. Since it’s been only two to three days that I am shooting, I haven’t got time to talk to people,” she adds.
Her role in Meri Durga is very different, which was why Srishti came on board. “The character Durga is very different from what I did in past and it’s inspiring to play such a strong character,” she signs off.
Way to go, girl!
