Born and raised in Kashmir, Aqsa Bhatt returned to her hometown disappointed after four years in Bengaluru as she was unable to make inroads in the film industry here. Just when she had given up hope, she was approached to star in a Kannada film, after which she has gone on to act in Tamil and Malayalam films. The actress spoke about her upcoming movie Game and why she owes everything to the Kannada film industry.
“I came to Bengaluru for higher studies, and while here, I dabbled in modelling as a means to make some extra pocket money. I did well as a model and was featured in close to 200 print ads. I was always interested in movies and tried to become an actress, but it is very difficult to do that if you don’t have filmi connections. Disappointed, I went back to Kashmir. I wondered why God did this to me, but 2-3 days later, I got a call from (director) Ratnaja who offered me the lead role in his movie.”
