Ajay Devgn was left amazed by Ishita Dutta’s performance in Drishyam' Ishita Dutta’s performance of a teenage girl and daughter of Ajay Devgn in the film Drishyam was so fabulous that Ajay himself was left amazed by the debutant actress. But for Ishita working opposite Ajay Devgn was not a cakewalk. From a list of over umpteen girls Ishita was finally selected for the film Drishyam. On the first day of her audition she stunned the entire casting director the crew and she was immediately signed and asked to pack her bags for Goa, where the film was mostly shoot. Though selected, Ishita was nervous on the first day of the shoot when she faced the camera with Ajay Devgn. In anxiety she began shivering and started saying her dialogues so fast that nobody could understand. Ajay Devgn understood her anxiety and took her in arms and called off the shot. Later he pepped her with motivation and did rehearsal along with her. This made Ishita friendlier with him and with the co-operation of Ajay Devgn, Ishita gave a mind-blowing performance. Hence when quizzed about her reaction on working with Ajay Devgn, Ishita said that Ajay Devgn, more than a fatherly figure, was her friend on the set and the two had great time. Praising Ishita, Ajay in an interview said that Ishita is a rare combination of talent and beauty and is the future of Indian film industry.
Ishita Dutta joined cinema against parents wish Ishita Dutta comes from a small town Jamshedpur, Jharkhand. Her parents are orthodox and were against her and her sister (Tanushree Dutta) joining cinema but she rebelled and pursued her passion in acting. She did her schooling from Dakshin Bharat Mahila Samaj English School, Jamshedpur and acquired a degree in Media Studies in Mumbai. She is attached to her elder sister Tanushree Dutta, an actress and model. Since her elder sister made a name in glamour world, Ishita too wanted to shine in films. Before plunging into films Ishita Dutta trained herself in acting When Ishita made up her mind to join cinema she first decided to train herself in acting so that she is equipped to face the camera. She joined eminent actor Anupam Kher’s acting institute ‘Actor Prepares’ and overcame her shy nature. The course developed not only her skill in acting but it built her overall personality. She was introduced to excellent teachers who helped in bringing out her talent to the hilt. Tanushree Dutta, Ishita’s sister guided her in filmdom Tanushree Dutta, a Miss India and a famous name in Bollywood (of hit films like Dhool, Risk etc) guided her younger sister, Ishita about the pros and con of filmdom. Though she did not spoon-feed her everything but she played a lion’s share in directing her and making her bold and confident. She taught her how to approach filmmakers to seek role and most importantly not to buckle down in case of failures and rejections. Ishita acknowledges that whatever she has been able to gain, it is all thanks to the wholehearted support and supervision of her elder sister Tanushree. She is today in a position to go out all alone and attain her dream without being dependent on others!
Ishita Dutta began her career from regional cinema Usually actresses prefer to begin from Bollywood but Ishita Dutta did not start from Bollywood probably because her elder sister Tanushree Dutta had landed into a controversy with actor Nana Patekar, who according to Tanushree had outraged her modesty during the sets of the film Horn Ok Please. The incident had ruined Tanushree’s career as the film industry stood by the side of Nana Patekar and had kicked Tanushree out! Hence to be on safer side Tanushree advised her sister to begin her career from regional cinema. Hence she made her debut in 2012 with Telugu film Chanakyudu, opposite Tanish. But the film failed. Nevertheless Kannada film director Shrikanth H.R. and produced by Niyaaz Ahmed decided to create a casting coup by bringing both Ishita Dutta and Tanushree Dutta together in their Kannada film 'Yenidu Manasali' but alas due to some financial set back the movie could not be complete. Left with no option Ishita decided to try luck in TV serials. Ishita Dutta became a celebrity with her first TV serial After a failure in regional cinema Ishita Dutta got an interesting role of Poonam, the traditionally rooted woman, who is under dilemma of taking care of parents after marriage in the popular Star Plus TV serial Ek Ghar Banaunga (2013). Her role became so popular that that she won the famous Star Parivar Award as Best Beti for the serial. After the huge success of Ek Ghar Banunga, she did Nach Baliye 6 and the hugely admired TV serial Rishton Ka Saudagar – Baazigar on Life OK channel. Ishita Dutta slapped her co-star in Rishton Ka Saudagar – Baazigar! During the shooting of the TV serial Rishton Ka Saudagar – Baazigar in a scene, Ishita, got so carried away with the emotion of the character that she slapped her co-star Vatsal Sheth hard on his face. Everybody was taken aback but the director was delighted as the scene turned out outstanding! After the scene Ishita sought apology from Vatsal Sheth but being an actor himself he understood her emotions and instead of being angry he too applauded Ishita for getting into the character and giving such a terrific performance! Ishita Dutta’s forthcoming film with Kapil Sharma Ishita Dutta has been signed by comedy king Kapil Sharma, who after the huge success of Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon, has turned film producer.
