The Internet is buzzing with rumours, 'Varun Dhawan to romance Kingfisher Calendar Girl Aisha Sharma in 'Judwaa 2?’ And that's when I thought of a chat with the refreshingly candid girl who 'likes looking effortlessly hot in shorts and hoodie'. Over to her.
"I started modelling in college just to explore a facet of my personality and it was fun! More so when you are pursuing a hectic engineering degree!! Following my sister's footsteps wasn't a part of the plan but watching her on screen for the first time did make me fall in love with the movies. Sigh! What I really love about modelling and acting is that it challenges you every single day; you have to step in the ring and win the fight except that the winning never ends… you gotta fight it out every single day! I aspire to try to not fit in. Everyone is trying to just be someone else whereas I want success on my own terms!! Those who think models and actors have it easy don't realise the intensity of work we put in it.. each and every day! Every person has his or her own story to write and own their share of struggles. But, having said that, my sister is the biggest moral support I have; she is my punching bag and also helps me tremendously in every way she can.
I feel my most prestigious campaign till date is Kingfisher Calendar. It was challenging and a brand new experience as I had never done a bikini shoot and it definitely required me to step out of my cocoon and comfort zone! But, at the end of the day, I am happy to be a part of the prestigious lineage the Kingfisher Calendar boasts of. I fall more and more in love with my profession each day! What makes me hot? My spunk! It makes me different from anyone in the country. As an actor I have this like-ability that makes you wanna watch a person on screen… a screen presence that is only yours!! Which is why I am not interested in playing it safe with an alternate career as most models are advised to do! Each one to its own. As Will Smith says "plan B distracts you from plan A" so there is no other plan! But it's important to complete your education because no one can take that away from you. So I did that! looking ahead, there is an extremely interesting film project which shall be announced at the right time! After all, my goal is to be the next Aisha Sharma of the country!"
