My acting career started in Georgia, where I had completed a full-time acting course. I was a teenager when I had my first experience in front of the camera. It was a popular TV serial, “Cake in the City.” After that, I auditioned for the football program—it was my dream job to be a TV presenter. I did my best and I knew that the main thing was to be sincere with the audience. I needed to have a real connection with them so they would feel it and respond with love. I became the youngest female sports anchor in Georgia. I went on to host several TV shows, but now I wanted to become an international movie star.
When I arrived in Australia, I had a mission—to study at the National Institute of Dramatic Art (NIDA) in Sydney where all the successful Australian Hollywood actors had taken courses. I had an amazing experience at the institute. Acting is my passion and I believe that you have to be confident and have faith in yourself in order to be a successful actor. You must have patience and be true to your work. I worked very hard and it was finally worth it because I decided to get into Bollywood after finishing my course at NADA.
I am a huge fan of Bollywood. There is so much drama and color in their films! I’m fascinated by Bollywood and I began my journey from zero. It was then that I just decided to become a Bollywood star. I have to learn Hindi at Sydney University and I’m very grateful to my Hindi teacher, Rekha Rajvanshi, who is a very generous person. I learnt about Bollywood dancing and singing styles, too. It was tough and my friends were shocked that I was doing it.
I didn’t even know where to start but luckily I heard about the audition of a Bollywood film titled Unidnian. I went for the audition and got my first role along with cricket star Brett Lee. It wasn’t a major role but it will always be the most important role in my life as it opened the doors of the Hindi film industry to me. The movie will be released in a couple of months and I can’t wait to see how the response is going to be!
As to my modelling career, I have a lot of modelling experience. I’ve done lots of TV ads, like Samsung Galaxy, Hilton hotel, and Foster’s beers. I have worked with many Australian designers. Modelling is my hobby but acting is my passion and I can’t live without it. A couple of months ago I got interviewed for an Indian magazine. I told them that I wanted to visit India after the movie. They asked me if I had a back up plan if I couldn’t fulfill your dream. My answer was, “Back up plan? I don’t need any; I know I can do it!”
