Ms. Namita Nayyar:
Ridheema, you have been in the industry for almost a decade, tell us about your journey and how did you decide to be an actor?
Ms. Ridheema Tiwari
Acting is such a difficult profession to break into and a few who attempt to do it actually succeed However I stumbled onto this career path accidentally during my Bank Job days. Being an English graduate, I was pursuing Mass communication as journalism was on my mind first. The scope to express myself and the thrill at work attracted me a lot. Ironically for some reason I accidentally chose to be a Banker then. Interestingly “a series of coincidences” landed me in showbiz. Today I call it all a GODS PLAN. I realized much later though that this is my ultimate calling. And yes, I never take this gift for granted. Not even for a second.
Art is who we are and what we do with it when we get a pedestal. Art isn’t a result; it’s a journey. The challenges that were thrown at me, I dealt with all of them mindfully with a strong heart and a lot of patience. I did everything that resonated with me at that time also welcomed every opportunity as a blessing and to date love to learn everything about the craft. I have been fortunate to have worked with some of the most respectable names. And learned the most on the sets – observing and listening to everything and everyone around closely. Most of it was useful all along. Even the bullying harassing, ragging, an etc bit too. Yes, I was bullied on the sets by a few nasty ones who I am extremely grateful to, today for making me a stronger and a better actor/person.
Then there were these dim days with no job in hand. I invested that time in acting workshops and activities that fine-tuned me as an actor/person. With an experience of 12 years now I have consistently been working on myself, and repeatedly grounded myself in so many situations, amidst all the failures, rough patches, and happy wins as an actor. I have found my sanity in prioritizing/balancing ambition, creative satisfaction financial stability & peace of mind.
Success word is overrated and burdensome. I focus on goals and outcomes every day. Collectively my journey as an actor may be a success story for a few. But for me, success is being truly happy contended with work and family life, and how loved I am as an actor and as a human. And that I have been receiving in abundance. Thank God I am a consistently working actor. I believe that the ultimate purpose is to find a journey that should be worthy of your heart and your soul. And I am living just that.
