a bit reluctant, but my mom asked me to give it a try. I started training under them and got a lot of projects. I kept working on my modelling assignments in different countries while studying law. I gave up studies in the third year as I started getting interested in acting. I got my degree in acting from Brazil and went on to do several television shows and commercials.
I was a little nervous on the first day, but as I had faced the camera before, things were a little smooth. The opening shot has me taking a shower and I had to wear a bikini for the same. It is a very sensuous shot, as my character is introduced here. It is pretty normal to deal with butterflies in the stomach on the first day of shoot.
Shooting underwater was the biggest stumbling block, as we had to deal with a lot of problems. A doctor was always around to check our blood pressure and body temperature. One day, I finished shooting for a crucial shot and collapsed. But, I resumed shooting the next day.
Post this film, my confidence has definitely increased manifolds. Being a model was all okay, but acting in front of the camera was a step ahead. There was a lot to learn from everyone on the sets.
I look up to Johnny Depp and Aamir Khan, because they get into the skin of their character and always manage to ace their work.
As of now, I will be staying in India. I have signed a couple of projects, but I am not allowed to talk about it. Apart from films, I will be doing some commercials as well.
