Adah Sharma made her acting debut with the horror film 1920 way back in 2008. A few films later, she moved down south and achieved success there. Now, she is back in the tinsel town with her upcoming release Commando 2 starring Vidyut Jammwal.
In an interview with Asian Age, the pretty damsel spoke about why she took up the film, on the competition in Bollywood and much more.
Here's what she had to say...
On Why She Gave Her Nod To Commando 2
Revealing why she agreed to be a part of the film, Adah said, "I fell in love with the role when I auditioned for the film, as I have never done something like this before. I have done emotional dramas. Getting a chance to make people laugh instead of crying seemed like a lot of fun. This is also the first time that anyone is trying out the Telugu Hyderabadi accent. The Muslim Dakni accent of the area has been done before, but not this one.
On Not Doing Done A Tamil Film Yet
The actress said, "I am a Tamilian but haven't done any Tamil film yet! It's so ironic. I am a hardcore Tamilian when it comes to food especially. I can't live without South Indian food. Having said that, I have been offered few films but I want to do something great. I don't want to do anything just for the heck of it. I have actually signed a Tamil film but I am very superstitious, so I don't like to talk about it."
On Her Bollywood Journey
Having been a part of several successful films in the south, she said, "Down South it's a little easier because you get your next film based on the success of your previous one. In Bollywood I don't know how it is I have no idea. I don't have a Godfather but I have been extremely lucky. The competition is very tough though.
I think my family is very open-minded but I do more self-policing than anyone else. I have always been given all the freedom by my family. No one really questions me as such about what roles I take up and so I can experiment as I want."
On Doing Horror Films
Adah sashayed into Bollywood with a horror flick further added, After I did 1920, I was offered a few horror films but I think I should get into that genre only if I think I can make something different. Horror gave me my first break but I'll only do another film if I can push the envelope."
