Shweta Bhardwaj From dancing on stage in revealing clothes to finally landing roles in Bollywood, Shweta Bhardwaj struggled her way to where she is today by dint of hard work and determination.

Imagine borrowing money to have your portfolio made. Or imagine performing on stage during a month-long tour and not getting paid for it in the end. This and more Shweta Bhardwaj has undergone and overcome.

For those who are scratching their heads and wondering who on earth is Shweta, well, she is the girl who made her debut in a brief role in the super-turkey Mission Istanbul . Or you may have seen her in advertisements of Nivea cream or Videocon or Tata Indica.




Shweta hails from Delhi. Born to a teacher mother and engineer father, Shweta began taking odd jobs at a very young age. She would pose alongside cars at auto shows and even did grueling shifts at call centres. In college, she would often bunk classes to work with some ace fashion designers.

She got her first big chance to enter showbiz when she got an offer to dance on stage for a musical tour that featured the likes of Kashmira Shah and Shibani Kashyap. Shweta lapped the offer but ended up in debts by the end of the tour because the show's organizer died and she did not get paid.

Having been bitten once, Shweta decided to take the right course. She got her portfolio made for Rs. 40,000. Since she had no money to pay, she took credit. She also shifted to Mumbai and began staying with a friend of hers. Within months, offers began pouring in and she modeled for a couple of ads.

Sunil Shetty , Bollywood actor and producer, noticed her in one of the ads and signed her on for three films with his production house Popcorn Entertainment.

Her first film 'Mission Istanbul' was a disaster at the box office but Shweta hopes her second film Loot will do much better. She is also doing a Kannada film called 'Tollywood to Hollywood'.

But the real plum project in her kitty is a French film in which she plays a character who knows 60 languages. Apart from these, Shweta says she is set to sign a big budget Hindi movie in the coming days.

Guess all the hard work has paid back!
