Nidhhi Agerwal a young and talented girl hailing from Bangalore, came to Mumbai to work in Bollywood, and luckily she bagged a role opposite Tiger Shroff in MUNNA MICHAEL. Nidhhi has been working hard to match steps with Tiger and feels delighted to be working with Nawaz, who is a powerful actor.
In an exclusive conversation with Nidhhi Agerwal she spoke in length about working in MUNNA MICHAEL, her camaraderie with Tiger Shroff and why she choose to debut with a dance-themed film.
Excerpts from the interview:
How did you bag MUNNA MICHAEL?
I don’t belong to Bollywood, nor do I have a family history relatively close related to this fraternity, I hail from Bangalore and many relatives and friends would say, I should try modelling or advertisements, so I gave it a shot. It wasn’t initially easy as I had to convince my parents that I want to go to Mumbai. After convincing them I decided to go to Mumbai, gave ample of auditions before I bagged MUNNA MICHAEL.
Were you apprehensive about dancing opposite Tiger Shroff?
No, I wasn’t. I had rehearsed a lot to dance. I am a ballet dancer myself. I have been inclined towards dancing since long. In fact Tiger is a very nice and a genuine human being. He is so flawless, never did he made me feel I am a newcomer. There is a huge fan following that Tiger has – be it kids of all age groups or even girls, they truly love Tiger.
Had it not been for MUNNA MICHAEL would you wait for a different genre to make your debut in Bollywood?
I don’t know. I think MUNNA MICHAEL is a mix of drama, romance and dance. I don’t think apart from MUNNA MICHAEL any film would have been apt for my debut.
Share your experience on working with Nawazzudin Siddique?
He is an amazing actor. He is a powerhouse of performance, not only acting, but there are so many things that I learnt from him. I won’t tell anyone, those are secret which I will cherish all my life.
As you came to Mumbai, you had issues in finding a house in Mumbai, has the issue sorted?
Yes, initially there was, actors here don’t get house that easily, but my parents flew down from Bangalore and everything is sorted now.
What kind of films would you want to do in future?
It’s too early to choose. I am ready for every film and every genre, apart from horror, I can’t work in horror. I am really scared!
What next after MUNNA MICHAEL?
I have three films deal with Eros. I can’t say what next now! I will spend time with friends and family.
