MUMBAI: Wamiqa Gabbi who is a well known face in the Punjabi film industry is slowly spreading her magic in the Hindi film industry too! The gorgeous actress who won hearts with her performance in the Sakshi Tanwar show Mai and Jubilee, is currently basking in the glory of her new Sony LIV show Charlie Chopra & The Mystery Of Solang Valley by Vishal Bradwaj.
Wamiqa who is one of the lucky few to work with the brilliant storyteller Bhardwaj revealing her experience of working with him saying, “I never manifested to be his heroine, to be honest since I never thought that it would be possible for me ever to be here where I am today. When I shot for Jab We Met in my 8th standard, I used to think about whether I could also be able to make it big like star kids Shahid Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor Khan. It has been an overwhelming journey for me so far.”
She added, “ Vishal sir had done films with all the big actors so I never felt that I also had a chance. To date, I have done four projects with him. The feeling is surreal.”
Speaking of her journey of being an actress, Wamiqa added, “Back in the day, I never had options. There were only films to be a part initially for me and I rejected so many big television shows that were offered to me, but to seek validation, I kept giving auditions. They used to call my parents and even offered many lakhs per month but I was least interested. It was very difficult to get through films being an outsider. I even auditioned for Dangal but I didn’t get through.”
Wamiqa will also be seen in the upcoming Netflix film Khufiya again by Vishal Bhardwaj.
