New Delhi: In her debut film Dil Dhadakne Do, we saw Ridhima Sud as the chic and fashionable Noorie Sood, but, the actress, who is happy to have received compliments from industry seniors like Javed Akhtar and Karan Johar, said that she would now like to be part of an action entertainer.
"I would love to physically challenge myself and do an action film in the future. But for now, perhaps a more desi role," Ridhima told IANS.
In Dil Dhadakne Do, Ridhima co-starred with actors like Anil Kapoor, Shefali Shah, Priyanka Chopra, Farhan Akhtar, Ranveer Singh, Anushka Sharma, Rahul Bose and Zarina Wahab. (Also Read: Ridhima Sud, Dil Dhadakne Do's Noorie, on Life, the Universe and Everything)
"It was a dream. It was everything one could ask for in their first film. I was apprehensive about being overwhelmed by the scale of things, but that was short lived," she said.
The film received a positive response at large, but Ridhima was especially happy with some special compliments.
"Javed Akhtar's compliment about my work is something I will cherish forever. He had the nicest, most kind words to say about my performance. And also when Karan Johar and Alia Bhatt complimented me," said Ridhima, who is the first person from her family to foray into acting.
She was also in awe of some female actors in Bollywood. "My inspirations are Priyanka Chopra and Kangana Ranaut because they're game changers. Anushka (Sharma) for being the youngest producer in town (Anushka stepped into production with NH 10). And Tabu, for her brand of acting and international body of work," she said.
