Dream, Believe, Achieve - Aishi Bhattacharya

1. Tell us about your background and journey.

I belong to a Bengali middle class family. I started taking classical dance classes at the age of 2 and half years. Later on I started taking western dance classes as well, but then my dance teacher suggested my mother to take me for some auditions. 

At the age of 6, I started working as an Actress. And after 3 years I got my first break as a lead actress. Now it's been 13 years since I'm working in this industry.

2. Did you ever think or dream of being an actor?

As I said before I started working at the age of 6. That time it was really fun for me since as a child I loved doing makeup and hair-dos. But later on it became my life. And I realized that Acting can be the only profession I would love to do with all my heart.

3. How can one approach their career and have the confidence and belief to become an actor?

I think one has to be really passionate enough about their dream. And in case of confidence one has to work really hard on their acting skills and have faith in themselves.

4. If not this, what would you be doing?

Since I started Acting from a very early age, I really loved that and I wanted to be an Actor only. But when I took a break from acting for my studies, I thought for some time that I would be a Journalist, but that thought was for a short time since I already realized how much I love Acting.

6. What is your mantra of success?

For me there are 3 words "Dream Believe Achieve". Just believe in your dreams and prepare accordingly and you will surely achieve your goals one day. Just believe in yourself. Believe is the key word for me.

5. For a complete outsider with no inroads, what advice would you like to give?

If someone wants to take Acting as a Profession seriously, then they'll have to learn first. I think someone should work on their acting skills as well as work with their technical skills too. Theatre is a really good platform to learn acting, discipline and work on someone's technical skills too.

7. Which is your favorite book and why?

There are a lot of books that I love to read actually. It generally depends on my mood. I am fond of Romantic Story Books, Detective Story Books and History Books.
