As a kid, I used to give fake interviews in front of the mirror: Ridhima Pandit

Actor Ridhima Pandit says that awards bring recognition and motivate one as an actor, however, it’s best to let one’s work do all the talking.

Actor Ridhima Pandit plays the role of a super robot in comedy  show  Bahu Hamari Rajni Kant.

Just one-year old in the television industry, actor Ridhima Pandit feels happy to have earned the stature that many can’t attain after working for years. Currently, playing the lead in a popular comedy soap, Ridhima even won the best debut award for portraying the character of a super robot. The 26-year-old, however, feels that awards bring more recognition and nothing more. “Awards do make me feel more motivated at this juncture in my career and I am looking forward to win more. But eventually, awards don’t matter in your life,” she says.

On winning her first-ever award, the actor says her colleagues were happy for her and the actor reminisces: “As a kid, I would always give out fake interviews in front of the mirror. I used to have these imaginary conversations and imagine what I would say if I went up on the stage to receive an award. I have been ready since I was six but when the moment came, I was numb and had to pinch myself to believe what was actually happening.”

Recalling the happy moment and her thank you note after receiving the trophy, the actor shares, “As a kid, I used to give fake interviews in front of the mirror. I used to have these imaginary conversations and imagine what I would say if I went up on the stage to receive an award. I have been ready since I was six but when the moment came, I was numb and had to pinch myself to believe what actually was happening.”

Ridhima wants people to know her for her work and not for the awards. “I am glad, I have that hunger to achieve something bigger and better in life. So yes, this award, that too for my first show, is definitely an accomplishment. It gave me a much needed kick. But that’s about it. I will let my work do the talking,” she adds.
