Recently, Ridhi Dogra who was last seen in Tv show 'Deeya aur Baati' and is best remembered for TV show 'Maryada' and reality show 'Khatro ke Khiladi' had attended an acting workshop with Chris Edmund who also happens to coach none other than the Hollywood hunk Hugh Jackman.
It was once in a lifetime opportunity. "He was opening a small workshop. Not for beginners but for actors to sharpen their skills", informs Ridhi "There was no single reason to deny him. I have learnt great new things and techniques. It will be helpful for me in future. Earlier, we used to enact whatever was written in the script. Now after attending this workshop I have confidence to suggest and show the director what other things I can do."
Ridhi is already considered as one of the finest actress of TV industry. But the actress denies by saying learning always broadens our vistas. "In any field, the moment you say I know it all, it all gets over. Even if you know everything, you get trapped inside your own patterns. Of course, people love to create an image but it misses the excitement of challenge. I am filmy freak too. I attend many film fests like MAMI morning to night. I try to learn something from each shot. I don't know where I am going with this, but learning new things definitely helps", comments Ridhi.
Watching her high spirits, the coach, Chris Edmund could hardly fail to notice her ever burning desire to learn. "His reaction was very very good", says Ridhi beaming positively "We were doing a classical play of a Russian author. I was a difficult to play because the level was of Shakespeare. There were many other participants too but the coach Edmund came to me and said if ever it gets on stage in India, I must be the one to do it. He said this no less than three times. This makes me confident that I am on the right track."
