Karishma Sharma tells aspiring actors to believe in themselves

Being successful at a young age of 24, Karishma Sharma wants aspiring actors to have faith in themselves. Talking about how one needs to be patient, she says “If you want to become an actor, first of all, you have to believe in yourself. There are lot of people who are not sure about what they want to do unlike my character Isha who is sure about what she wants to do. You have to believe in your dreams and work hard for it. That's what I did. I wanted to be a big actress. I have always dreamt about it. No work is small. I really had a small role in Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2 but for me it was a stepping stone. I really learned something out of it. I was working as assistant director on D-Day with Nikhil Advani. It was a small job that I did in the film industry but if it can make you learn something, please do it, because everything you do is a learning process and a stepping stone to success.”


Commenting on how bad experiences and bad people often deter aspiring artists from pursuing their dreams, she said “There are no good and bad people as such. There are people who always say good and bad things about you. You need to have a good presence of mind as an actor and you need to be good at your work. And if you are, people are not going to misguide you. They will respect you and appreciate your talent. There are so many new talents out there who are getting launched in the industry only because they are talented. I know nepotism is there but I also feel that it is not wrong because if you are talented, you will get it.”
