Shot to fame with her critically acclaimed debut film LAHORE, Shraddha Das certainly has a reason to celebrate. Shraddha has outdone 100 girls to be casted in Madhur Bhandarkar's Rom-Com- DIL TOH BACHCHA HAI JI as one of the leading ladies. The film stars big names like Ajay Devgn, Emraan Hashmi and the Chatur of 3 IDIOTS, Omi Vaidya. Shraddha is paired opposite Omi in the film.
The actress went for the auditions of this movie and was one of the 100 young women who were auditioned for the role she bagged. "After my auditions I did not hear from anyone from the movie. I was heartbroken and just didn't know what to do. But when I finally got a call and they said that out of the 100 women they auditioned I have been selected for the role, I couldn't stop jumping with happiness," she says.
Shraddha has done some movies in the south and made her Hindi film debut in LAHORE. But it has always been her dream to be a part of Madhur's movie. "I haven't stopped smiling since the day I was signed on for DIL TOH BACCHA HAI JI. My dream has come true and this is one of the best things that has ever happened to me in my life. Now I would tell people to dream more because dreams do come true," says a very excited Shraddha.
The actress has been a part of many blockbuster movies down south and is known as the sequel queen because she has been a part of sequels of many Telugu movies like ARYA 2, MANTRA 2 and CHANDRAMUKHI 2. She has also sung song called 'Gajjala Gurram' in a Telugu movie titled SYE AATA.
Shraddha has seen all the movies made by Madhur and is a big fan of him, as she calls him her dream director. "I love his cinematic sensibilities. I have seen CHANDNI BAR, PAGE 3, CORPORATE, TRAFFIC SIGNAL and FASHION. What I really like about his movies is that women in his movies are not just a pretty picture in the frame. He makes all the characters in his movie important. When I was given the offer to be a part of this movie, I just said 'YES' without bothering to know what my role is going to be. I know that whatever he makes me do in this movie, I will have an identity and the character will be worth working on," she further shares.
Well dreams do come true, is what this instance sums up. So keep dreaming and chasing your dreams, like Shraddha, who is now shooting for Madhur's film in Mumbai and is on cloud nine, with joy no bound.
