Pashmina Roshan, daughter of famous Bollywood music composer Rajesh Roshan and cousin of Hrithik Roshan, is also going to be a part of the entertainment world soon. Pashmina, who is making her debut on the big screen with the film ‘Ishq Vishwa Rebound’, spoke to us openly about her inclination towards acting, her association with music, the pressure of carrying forward the family legacy, etc.

Fell in love with cinema on the sets of Koi Mil Gaya

When asked about her first love affair with cinema, she says, ‘My earliest memory of cinema is of the sets of the film Koi Mil Gaya. Kasauli city was built in the film city. I was very young then but my sister and I used to go to the sets every day. There were children in the film too, so we used to have a lot of fun with them. I used to have so much fun there that I felt like I would never have to go home. Since then, whenever I was on the sets, I was the happiest. Slowly, I started feeling that this is my world. I get the most happiness and satisfaction here. Therefore, I started doing theater in school too.’

Left studies in London and chose acting

Talking about her journey from the dream of becoming an actor to her first film Ishq Vishk Rebound, Pashmina said, ‘I always had a love for acting in my heart, but when I was in college, I had some insecurities. After completing my BMM studies, I wanted to act but I was also afraid whether I had the ability to act or not. I look like a little girl, how will I become an actress? There were many such questions in my mind, so I felt that I would not be able to do this and I applied to schools in London. I also got admission in marketing. All the preparations were done but I was very unhappy with it. I used to just stay locked in the house, then Papa (Rajesh Roshan) said that it is very important to be happy with your work. he/she always says that our house is of artists. My mother also does painting, so I felt that I also do not have to stay on the backfoot. I have to stay on the frontfoot and I did not take admission there and started working on my mission. I did many acting classes, took dance classes. Then after giving many auditions, I got this film.

‘It’s better if I don’t sing’

Pashmina’s father Rajesh Roshan is a well-known musician, so why did she not get inclined towards singing? On this she laughs and says, ‘I play the keyboard. I like it a lot but when it comes to singing, I am not in tune at all. My father thinks that my voice is good but when I sing, my face hurts. Therefore, I feel that it is better for my father’s pride that I do not sing.’ How much pressure is there on Pashmina to carry forward her family’s legacy? On this she says, ‘As I said, my family is of artists. I like their work very much. I am very lucky that I am going to make my place among them but this is just my beginning. It will be a matter of great happiness for me if I am able to do work like him/her.’ Would she like to do a sequel of any of Uncle Rakesh Roshan’s films? On this Pashmina excitedly says, his/her Kaho Naa Pyar Hai is my favorite film, so I would like to do its sequel. When asked about the advice she got from her uncle and brother Hrithik Roshan, she says, ‘Uncle’s advice was that whatever you do, be completely alert in it. Give your 100%. Bhaiya said that always work on improving yourself. Test yourself and see how you can become better.’

There is no denying the benefits of a filmy family

Pashmina belongs to the famous Roshan family of the industry. Her uncle Rakesh Roshan himself is a big producer. So could she have been launched through her home production? On this she says, ‘I did not want that. I wanted to be worthy of it first. My family members are not the kind of people who make a film just to launch someone. First there should be a good script, then I should be worthy of it. I want to make myself worthy of it, before that I can never even say this to my family. I still feel bad that I wasted my father’s money for my admission in London. But those who say that we get the benefit of being from a filmy family, it cannot be denied. I have taken acting classes, there I have seen those people who come from small towns to become actors. They have to pay rent in Mumbai themselves, have to find work for that. I know that even if my family members are not calling anyone for me, but if I go into the room and say my name, I get a weightage, so I will not deny that there is a little privilege.’

Feel like family with your partner

Talking about her character in the film, she said, ‘Sonia, the character in Ishq Vishk, is not like me at all. I am such a person who cannot say no to anyone, whereas Sonia cannot hear no. I am a sweet simple type, whereas she is a goon type, so she is very different from me, but in terms of love, we are a bit similar. We both are a bit emotional. Love is everything for us.’ Whereas, talking about the qualities of her partner, Pashmina says, ‘The partner should be someone with whom you feel like a family and a home. With whom you can move forward. It should not be like you are my life. I believe that in a relationship, you are you, I am me and both of us join together to become us. Our individuality should not be lost in it.’
