Is Pallavi Sharda too scared to be compared with the likes of Deepika?

While some would have strongly believed that ‘Besharam’ was a perfect launchpad for Pallavi Sharda to make her debut in the world of Bollywood, opposite Bollywood heartthrob Ranbir Kapoor. But, the movie bombed at the box-office which no one thought off! Unaffected by the fate of her first film.. Pallavi, who was in Ahmedabad recently on a promotional trip confidently said, “Since the release of the film, I’ve been away spending a lot of time in Australia, working on different projects.

So I didn’t get affected by the fate of the film. Having said that, I’m happy with the way the film turned out. Now that I am back in India, I’m busy with other films (Pallavi is shooting for a period drama opposite Ayushmann Khurrana). This feels like a new beginning and I am only looking forward from here on.

Pallavi also feels that there is nothing to be scared off and that the competition is not a concern for her as the industry provides enough space and work for every individual. She says, “I don’t think being a newcomer means you need to be scared of your contemporaries. We are professionals at the end of the day and there is lots of work for everyone. There are no insecurities. I meet other new comers during award functions and other outings, and it’s all good. We meet and have fun, they are all nice. When it comes to more established names like Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone, though I haven’t met them, I really appreciate their work. I am too new to even get into their competitive zone.

But there are rumours that most leading ladies don’t share warm work vibes. She quips, “As industry insiders, we don’t pay heed to rumours.”

Talking about her future plans, Pallavi shares, “I am taking one thing at a time right now. I knew that with names like Ranbir and Rishi Kapoor involved in the same film, I was never going to be in the main focus. It was my childhood dream to do films, and now that I am getting to do that, I am more than happy.
