Hrishita: Controversially yours!
Dancing has taken her places, literally. A demure Gujarati girl, Hrishita Bhatt was taking dancing lessons from choreographer Shiamak Davar, unaware that she had charmed some people from the advertising fraternity. Her cute smile got her the opportunity to feature in an ad for Liril soap, and things took off.
There were music videos and more advertisements, followed by a rather natural move to the big screen. First-time director Gurudev Bhalla cast her opposite Abhishek Bachchan in Shararat, after which she starred as Shah Rukh Khan's wife in his magnum opus Asoka.
We caught up with Bhatt to talk about what happens next.
