Our readers might have noticed that Ridhi Dogra who was last seen in COLORS' Laagi Tujhse Lagan, shares her surname with the charming Akshay Dogra who is presently seen in Zee TV's 12/24 Karol Bagh!! But the similarity does not end here, as Ridhi and Akshay happen to be siblings who are trying to put their best foot forward in the television industry!!
Like her elder bro, Ridhi too has had this passion of being behind the camera!! Ridhi first joined Zoom and was in charge of events there. Later she was moved to the Sales and Marketing department, after which she showed her prowess at producing shows for Zoom.
Tellybuzz talked to the brother sister duo to know how it feels to be working towards a similar goal. Akshay Dogra the elder bro tells us, "Working behind the camera happened because of choice to me. But it came by chance for Ridhi".
Though Akshay is elder to Ridhi, she is a senior to him when it comes to acting. Talking about the one chance that they got to share an on screen sibling chemistry on television, Akshay states, "When I was part of Kasturi, she got a chance to join the cast as my sister in the show. However, she had date problems and this could not happen. We are looking forward for such an opportunity to come our way again (smiles)".
Speaking about having a big bro in the industry, Ridhi quips, "Its good fun when you have your brother helping you out in taking decisions. In fact, our parents had a dream set for us; they wanted me to pursue law, and wanted Akshay to do his MBA. But we both chose media and entertainment as our profession, and that is how it is".
While Ridhi chooses to be known as an actor from now on, Akshay aspires to be a film maker one day. "I want to make films, and I know I will do it some day", asserts Akshay.
Ridhi on her part says, "Akshay is an amazing writer and his creative visions are really great. He sketches well too and of course he is a good actor (smiles)".
Ridhi is presently shooting for an episode of Star One Horror Nights and is looking for a challenging role. Akshay Dogra is seen in Sunshine Productions' show on Zee TV, 12/24 Karol Bagh where he plays the role of Vishal who is the guy opposite Millee (Hunar Halli).
We wish the brother and sister an amazing journey in the entertainment industry…
