'Very few make it big'

'Very few make it big'

Devshi Khanduri, who was noticed in her debut film ‘Chargesheet’, says theatre helps her sharpen her acting skills and she loves it because there is a lot more creativity in it.

Devshi adds that it is tough for a person without a film background to make a mark in the industry.

“It took me two years of auditioning after which I got ‘Chargesheet’. For a person like me, who is from a non-film background, it is very difficult to get into films. The number of young people who want to get into the industry is huge but very few make it big. I consider myself very lucky but I had to work hard for this opportunity. It feels great that whatever work I have got has been on the basis of my performance,” she quips. Now that she is getting good work, she makes sure she does not choose similar kind of roles.

She has now signed a Hollywood film in which she is doing the lead role. From a supporting actress to the main lead — the journey has been a learning one for Devshi.
