‘Bulbbul’ Starrer Triptii Dimri Speaks Of Her Journey In B’wood Till Now; Have A Look
Bollywood actress Triptii Dimri made her first debut in Poster Boys (2017), where she essayed a supporting role. Next, she acted as a lead in Laila Majnu (2018). The actor faced a turning point after essaying in Bulbbul (2020), leading to winning critical acclaim and making her presence felt in showbiz.
As per the latest reports, in an interview with the Bombay Times, Triptii opened up on making her presence in showbiz, and journey till now. She said, “Honestly, I did not expect much. I am from Delhi, and started off as a model and was doing commercial ads there. I did not intend to pursue acting as a career, even though it overwhelmed me. I never made an effort in that direction as I had no contacts and didn’t know how to get into it. Besides, for making a career as an actor in the Bollywood film industry, I would have had to shift base to Mumbai, which my parents wouldn’t have allowed.”
She added, “The team of Poster Boys spotted me and approached me through social media. I told them that I know nothing about acting, yet I auditioned and to my surprise, got selected. Only after the release of the film, my parents thought that I should move to Mumbai. Soon after I bagged Laila Majnu as the female lead, luck seemed to be on my side. While making my debut in Laila Majnu, I realized that I’ve no knowledge of workshops, character reading sessions, and discussions. As essaying a lead, I was unaware of all these. I used to attend these discussions with Imtiaz Ali sir (co-writer of the screenplay of the film), director Sajid Ali and co-actor Avinash Tiwary. I used to sit there with blank expressions. Before the second schedule of the film, I was advised to take acting classes. During the course of acting, I realized that I am enjoying this and want to pursue it as my profession. After landing on the set for the second schedule, the team was happy seeing improvement in me.”
Further, as per her statement with the Bombay Times, she said that a lot of people asked her to stay away from OTT after doing two back-to-back feature films. She did a great job not following their suggestions, as her digital film ‘Bulbbul’ has changed her life completely, both professionally and personally. Through that project, she learned to grasp a character’s graph. It made her quite confident as a person and as an actor.
Further, the actor said, “I believe that in the fact that whatever is yours will come your way and you don’t need to fight for anything, being scared. This has happened to me! I wasn’t ready for films and look at me today.”
On the work front, Triptii will be seen essaying in Dharma Productions’ next Phone Booth, a horror-comedy. The film also features Ishaan Khatter, alongside Triptii. The latest reports say, besides, she has also signed another film Pippa, which is a war drama.
