She may come across as another star kid to enter the Hindi film industry, but debutante Tina Ahuja, daughter of hit entertainer Govinda, says she neither has friends in Bollywood nor was she brought up in an environment of ‘filmy’ parties.
Making her debut with Smeep Kang’s “Second Hand Husband”, Tina said: “I don’t have friends in the industry… we have never had ‘filmy’ parties in our house and we don’t socialise that much.”
Talks of Tina’s Bollywood debut have been on for the past few years, but what took her so long to finally arrive on the scene?
“Sometimes, star kids are exposed to film industry, whereas my upbringing was very normal. For me, it was a very different thing but there are some people who start off early As they get launched because their parents have been friends with or associated with filmmaker… So, it happened quickly for them. But it was a process for me to get into films,” she said.
Tina always wanted to start her career with light-hearted cinema, and so, she opted to debut “Second Hand Husband”, which, according to her, is a commercial romantic comedy with good songs.
“The film is based on alimony, so it’s not that we are just putting out punches out there for the people. There is a story there,” said the actress, who will be seen in the film with Punjabi singer-actor Gippy Garewal.
As the daughter of a star well known for his dancing prowess, Tina says she too is a good dancer but did not get a chance to show off her skills in “Second Hand Husband”.
Nevertheless, she is aware comparisons will be drawn between her and her father.
