Online casting platform of Suniel Shetty & Mukesh Chhabra, opens avenues for international talent in the industry
No longer do dreams in the entertainment industry need to wait to see the light of the day for years on end.
Even if you’re not at the right place at the right time it can’t stop you from being successful thanks to the digital talent platform F The Couch, an online venture by Suniel Shetty and Mukesh Chhabra
Model & actor Nikita Sachdev, the newest success story of the digital portal, is based in Singapore. Infact, she came across the platform when she was vacationing in America. She created a profile on F The Couch & applied for Jazzy B’s music video.
To her surprise m, very soon she got a call from team FTC about being selected. She flew down to India with this confirmed opportunity and shot in Chandigarh.
“Since I am based abroad, the biggest challenge is to be here in Mumbai to struggle for a role, like a lot of talents here do. For me, it would mean investing a lot of time & money without any surety of getting an opportunity. But with F The Couch, I flew down only when I was absolutely sure that I had been shortlisted,” said Nikita.
Extremely thrilled with the success of Jazzy B’s video, Londono Patola Reloaded, Nikita adds that being a Punjabi, the video was one straight out of her dreams.
“My family is thrilled to see me in Punjabi music video… With this break through FTC I am also looking forward to her acting opportunities in Punjabi films… being a part of regional cinema would be as enriching as being in the mainstream for me.”
