Chat Govinda's daughter will begin her career with a romantic comedy next year
G ovinda's daughter Narmada Ahuja, whose debut film has been delayed, says the script has been finalised and the project will hit the production stage early next year. “The status of that project is we have finalised the script. Everything is done and we are now working on it. Most probably the first schedule of the film will go on the floors in January or February,” 20-year-old Narmada says.
The daughter of Bollywood's popular funny man Govinda, Narmada too will start her acting journey with a romantic comedy. “The film is a young, fresh romantic comedy. Even the production house is not new, but they are coming out with a film after a gap of a few years. I already have another film lined up after this. I can't talk about the project right now. A formal announcement is likely by the end of this year,” said the youngster who learnt acting at the London Film Institute.
When asked about her co-actor in the film, Narmada said: “All I can say is that my co-star in the film is not a newcomer.”
She says her father's suggestions helped her in making up her mind about her career. “Every father gives tips to their kids before they start their profession. My father too gave me a couple of tips. The most important thing that he told me was that no matter what you do, give it your 500 per cent. That's one thing that really made me focussed about my career and made me more professional about it,” said Narmada. Since she will be working in a romantic comedy, does she have her father's comic timing? “I really can't judge that right now because I have not started shooting. But you never know, I might come up with something like he does, once we start working on the film,” said Narmada who enjoys her father's hits like Deewana Mastana, Swarg, Hero No. 1 and Partner.
Narmada also defies the notion that star kids get things easily in Hindi filmdom. “I don't think it's easy for us to enter the industry. At least it was not easy for me because I myself didn't want to get into the industry without any preparation. Once you know that you are well groomed and you're sure you can deliver, then only you should go for it,” said the actress.
