Sobhita Dhulipala comes to the cinema from modeling. Shobhita caught her attention by winning Miss India Earth in 2013. Later, she made her film debut with Anurag Kashyap’s Raman Raghav 2.0. Sobhita has been able to win applause by acting in many hits in different languages like Thiunnangot Moothon, Major, Kurup, Ponniyan Selvan etc.
Shobhita gets her career through OTT. Shobhita also became a star after Amazon Prime’s Made in Heaven became a huge hit. Now Shobhita has introduced another OTT program. The new show is Disney Plus Hotstar’s The Night Manager. Now, Shobhita talks about his early career at The Indian Express.
“At first it’s all war. I don’t come from a movie family. I remember going to auditions for commercials and being told many times that you’re not white. There are things like this at the ad level. Look me in the face and tell me you’re not beautiful But that didn’t stop me,” says Sobhita.
“I thought about how I could be creative. How to be a part of this industry. Because I really want to. And willing to work for it every day. That’s how you start to think differently. And not wait for a big commercial film director to find us All I have control over is going to the audition and giving my 100 percent,” says Shobhita.
Shobhita was very happy when she got a chance with Raman Raghav. The Anurag Kashyap film was an exciting experience. Shobhita says that the film was a school for her. Shobhita says that her wish is to become an actress and not to become a star.
“If you love acting, nothing else will affect you. Meanwhile, if your ambition is to become a star, all this will fade into the background. If you want to be a star, you have to be like that. But I’m not that kind of person.” ‘ says Shobhita.Meanwhile, Shobhita asks if she likes to be celebrated and what is art without an audience.
“But now when I feel insecure, I remind myself of where I came from and where I am now.” I am from Visakhapatnam. It’s been fantastic so far. I still have a lot to do,” says Sobhita. Shobhita’s newly launched show is the second part of Night Manager. Anil Kapoor and Aditya Roy Kapur also star in Night Manager.
