I have been following the journey of Sobhita Dhulipala ever since I first saw her in Miss India. She then went to represent the country at Miss Earth and did so beautifully. Seeing her strong presence, I waited for her to make a career in showbiz as I knew she would be a perfect fit here, and she eventually did that in 2016 with Raman Raghav 2.o. It’s been six years since and her affect on me is just getting stronger and stronger.

Recently, the actress has been sharing videos of her dancing beautifully in Indian classical dance forms and my heart has been fluttering with joy seeing those. As I got an opportunity to interact with her, I couldn’t stop myself from asking her about her roots in dance and even she gets excited talking about it.

Sobhita shares,

“My mother is a great patron of the arts and she put me in Kuchipudi classes as a kid. I did it for a couple of years and ran off. Then I did Bharatnatyam classes for a couple of years in my teens and again ran off because I was so shy and didn’t want to be seen. I just didn’t have the confidence to enjoy it.

However, Sobhita insists that the lockdown gave her a new perspective towards dance and she started finding solace in it. While doing so, she began falling in love with the art, and her smile doesn’t go away even for a single second while talking about it.

She avers,

“In the last couple of years, especially during the lockdown, I rediscovered dance in my life and fell in love with it. It’s a whole different deal when you do something you love, because you do it with passion and without fear. I love dancing, especially the Indian classical dance forms, so getting to explore that a little bit has been very fun. Also, in Mani Ratnam sir’s film Ponniyin Selvan, there is a little bit of it as well.

Talking about Ponniyin Selvan, Sobhita has an illustrious year in the offing as her future line up has projects like Major, her Hollywood debut in the Dev Patel directorial Monkey Man, Made In Heaven Season 2, Sitara and the Indian remake of The Night Manager with Aditya Roy Kapur and Anil Kapoor. Ask her about the latter, for which she was recently shooting in Sri Lanka, and she seems excited.

Talking about her experience on The Night Manager remake, the actress states,

“It’s been amazing. The official announcement is yet to be made so I’ll keep mum. But this much I will say that it has been a ride that I won’t get off from.”

Sobhita is surely climbing her way to success and her upcoming line up is a proof to that. I have adored her since I saw her in Miss India and seeing Sobhita getting so good at her craft fills me with pride. I am sure there are only greater things for her in the future and I can’t for them to happen to her.
