Like every new actor who makes a foray into Bollywood, Urvashi Rautela too is hopeful of making it big in the film industry. The actress, who starred opposite Sunny Deol in 'Singh Saab The Great', is unfazed about the film’s poor performance at the ticket windows.
“It’s just the beginning. I feel very fortunate to have made my debut with Sunny Deol. I’m aware of his stardom, his popularity and his reach. I’m sure that teaming up with him has made people sit back and notice me,” says Urvashi.
The actress who won many beauty pageants and prestigious titles, has been independent from a very young age. “Since I started my career very early, I have gone through the rigmarole of experiencing successes and failures. I’m aware that survival isn’t a cakewalk.”
Urvashi feels that it was a sensible decision to not sign any film before the release of SSTG. “Sunnyji had suggested that I wait till the release of the film. And I do feel that it was a sensible decision to not take up more films. Being one film old can now help me gauge the audience’s reaction better and understand myself as an actor. Now I know what are my strengths and weaknesses.”
The actress now feels ready to step out of her mentor’s shadow and take charge of her career. Urvashi says she admires Deepika Padukone and Katrina Kaif. “It’s a win-win situation when you make your debut with a superstar like Salman Khan, Shah Rukh Khan or Sunny Deol. The audience walks in to watch the actors they idolise, they also end up noticing beginners like me. It’s the biggest boost ever. I hope that I also succeed in sustaining myself like my seniors,” she says, keeping her fingers crossed....
