Delhi Girl Mahima Hora wanted to be a legal professional but one opportunity led to another and she became a part of the entertainment Industry. She did a few ads and shifted to Mumbai. She has also worked in the production department of films. Even though she had offers of TV serials, but she was not keen to work in that space. She became the face of Maharashtra Tourism and recently did a Punjabi music video too.
How did you bag your debut Punjabi film?
Rajan Batra saw my work profile and signed me for his film. The character was that of a Hockey player and I am active in sports.
Was there any insecurity about sharing the screen space with another heroine?
I knew my part well so there wasn't really any insecurity. I rather felt good that being my first film I won't be under pressure alone.
How does the industry react to newcomers?
When you are newcomer, the whole struggle becomes more difficult. Same is the case with the Hindi film industry. I never faced any problem during my production work there. But here, people don't like to take inputs, especially from a girl!
Many girls entered the Punjabi film industry in the last few years, but not all are regularly seen later on. What is your take on it?
It all depends upon the offers. If I will get good offers, I will surely do more films here. But I would like to be part of good projects be it Hindi, Punjabi, Marathi or in films down South.
Mahima speaks fairly good Punjabi and she regularly watches Punjabi films too. A fan of Sargun Mehta after watching Qismat, Mahima says she'll soon be part of a big Hindi film.
Blurting more details about it she said, "I will soon be a part of a big Hindi film. There are offers of South films too and before you ask me about Punjabi films let me tell you that I am doing another Punjabi film but let us wait for the makers to make an official announcement about it".
