Newbie Ridhima Sud seems to be learning from the best while shooting Zoya Akhtar’s next. The actor works closely with Priyanka Chopra who guides her at every step. “She taught me so many things. She wanted me to learn from her experiences – good and bad from when she started out,” says the actor. Not only did Priyanka give her feedback on her scenes, Priyanka also advised on other things such as industry protocol. “She emphasised the need to be a producer’s actor by being punctual and professional always if others around you aren’t. Basically advise which would be beneficial for me in the future,” Ridhima enthusiastically adds.
Priyanka is also very protective of Ridhima, the actor confesses. “I have a habit of being very vocal about things which I feel are wrong. Priyanka advised me that I should try to be less affected by things I can’t control. In fact during the shoot she said that if I ever felt disgruntled, I should come and take out my frustration in front of her and that she’d be happy to listen and advise which she did. She really wanted to make sure that everyone had a high opinion of me and that my occasional feisty-ness didn’t change that! Haha!”
