For Rhea Chakraborty, it’s not been an easy journey in showbiz. The actor, who shot to fame after her first Bollywood film, Mere Dad Ki Maruti (2013), went on to do Mohit Suri’s recent directorial Half-Girlfriend, as well.

Asked why she’s taking it so slow, Rhea says, “I think nothing is easy in this [film] industry. There are so many people who are trying their luck in films and only a few of those actors get to do films and choose to be an actor. The stakes are always high here. It’s hard in the sense that it’s very uncertain. There would be times when you will be getting work, but not the kind that you want to do.”

Rhea will also do a cameo in Dobaara, which also stars actors Saqib Saleem and Huma Qureshi in lead roles. While a lot of actors are sceptical about doing small roles during initial phase of their career, Rhea doesn’t believes in such ideas. “I don’t go by what you should do and what you should not do.

She feels that there is a stigma associated with what one must do before a film and what one should do after it is released. “For instance, if you do television, then you should not do films or vice versa. I think that thought process is changing and we as actors, especially the younger ones, should not follow that rule at all because everyone should do whatever they like. I am continuing to do lead roles and that is where I am actually headed, but doing cameos is also a fun experience,” adds Rhea.
