Bollywood action man with a heart of gold Suniel Shetty and Bollywood top rank casting man Mukesh Chhabra’s casting agency F The Couch is going great guns beyond doubt.
The digital casting platform had now opened avenues for international talent in the industry. Model & actor Nikita Sachdev, the newest success story of the digital portal, is based in Singapore. In fact, she came across the platform when she was vacationing in America. She created a profile on F The Couch & applied for Jazzy B's music video. To her surprise very soon she got a call from team FTC about being selected. She flew down to India with this confirmed opportunity and shot in Chandigarh.
'Since I am based abroad, the biggest challenge is to be here in Mumbai to struggle for a role, like a lot of talents here do. For me, it would mean investing a lot of time & money without any surety of getting an opportunity. But with F The Couch, I flew down only when I was absolutely sure that I had been shortlisted,' said Nikita.
The elated Nikita is now eyeing big screen, extremely thrilled with the success of Jazzy B's video, Londono Patola Reloaded, Nikita adds that being a Punjabi, the video was one straight out of her dreams. 'My family is thrilled to see me in Punjabi music video... With this breakthrough FTC I am also looking forward to her acting opportunities in Punjabi films... being a part of regional cinema would be as enriching as being in the mainstream for me.'
