MUMBAI: Actress Khatija Iqbal made her acting debut with ALTBalaji’s “Ragini MMS: Returns”. She has been living in Mumbai for over ten years now, but shared, “I never knew I wanted to become an actor until I came here. It felt as if this place wanted me to try!”
“If not an actor I would’ve finished my business studies and go on to become an entrepreneur but I’m glad I didn’t. Entrepreneurship is easy, acting isn’t, and what I’ve learned through acting, my school did not teach me,” she added.
She also admitted that though she did not have inspiration at first, she was motivated by the work of actors like Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Manoj Bajpayee, Tabu, and Konkona Sen Sharma. She added, “They inspired me to tell the truth as an actor on the most honest and deepest level possible with a touch of your personality because that’s what makes you an excellent actor.”
The “Namaste England” actress confessed that she had her share of struggle in the industry, but added, “I won’t call it a struggle anymore, I would say it was like a school teaching me how to become better each day and that’s all I strive for.
