Actress Jiya Shankar who played Nisha in the recently released Marathi film `Ved` co-starring Riteish and Genelia Deshmukh, dropped by the mid-day.com office to celebrate the success of the film. Watch her open up about her journey in showbiz and play a fun segment.
Speaking about her journey, Jiya said, “It took me 10 years to be where I am today so it wasn`t an easy journey. I started acting because my mom asked me to give it a shot, then it grew on me. I was a super shy kid so it took me years to accept that I am an actor.”
The actress is glad that even the non-Marathi speaking audience has been watching her film. “People have been telling me that thought they can`t speak Marathi, they watched `Ved` with subtitles and loved me. That means the world to me.”
Sharing her future plans, Jiya added, “An actor never chooses where he wants to perform, everything is a stage, be it Hindi, Marathi Telugu or Tamil. I believe that every opportunity is big. I want to do Hollywood as well.”
