MUMBAI: Avneet Kaur has come a long way since she started her journey in the entertainment industry as a young prodigy twelve years ago. Today, she has secured her breakthrough role as the lead in Kangana Ranaut’s inaugural production, Tiku Weds Sheru.
The film, which will be available for streaming on Prime Video this weekend, stars the versatile Nawazuddin Siddiqui and the emerging talent Avneet Kaur. Tiku Weds Sheru is a romantic comedy-drama that tells the story of two starry-eyed individuals who aspire to conquer the grand stage of Bollywood, braving the tumultuous challenges that come their way.
For Avneet, the opportunity to collaborate with Nawazuddin, a recipient of the National Award, was a dream come true. “The dedication and seriousness with which Nawaz sir approaches his craft are truly admirable,” she said. “As actors, it is essential for us to be fully present and committed. When the camera rolls, nothing should distract us. He exudes a profound sense of devotion and passion for his work, immersing himself completely in the moment. He gives his all, and that is a valuable lesson I’ve learned from Nawaz sir—one that I intend to carry with me throughout my acting journey, regardless of the projects I undertake.”
