Riddhi Kumar is excited to make her debut in films with the Telugu movie Lover. Directed by Anish Krishna, the romantic entertainer stars Raj Tarun. Sharing the details of her background, Riddhi says, “My father works in the Army and I have been raised in different places. I am currently living in Pune and I have just completed my Bachelors in Philosophy.”

Having been a part of several pageants and shows, Riddhi says she always wanted to become an actress. “After modelling, I wanted to get into theatre to understand the nuances of acting. But I got an opportunity in this Telugu film,” she reveals, adding, “I was asked to mouth a few dialogues and enact scenes from the film in my audition. I was new to the language but I managed to pull off.”

 

Riddhi will be seen as Charita, a Malayali nurse, in the romantic entertainer. She says, “I could connect well with the character because in real life too I wanted to make a difference.”

She further adds, “Initially, it was difficult for me to stay away from home and live in Hyderabad, meet new people and work in a new industry. But after I wrapped up the shooting, it dawned on me that my dream of becoming an actress is being realised. Since I have seen the process of filmmaking, I have started valuing the industry more.”
