In an era when many starkids are pursuing careers as actor, putting themselves in the spotlight, attracting media attention, and making news headlines with their latest fashion, there are still those starkids who, while coming from a family with ties to the entertainment industry, want to avoid becoming the centerpiece. One such name is Narmmadaa Ahuja, better known by her stage name Tina Ahuja, the daughter of iconic actor Govinda.
Being a starkid offers advantages of its own, including successful launches and good films. An actor without any contacts in Bollywood, on the other hand, has to go through a fair amount of adversity. But, there are some starkids who worked hard to secure good prospects, and did not rely on their parents to help them break into the industry. And Tina Ahuja is one such illustration who achieved all by herself to get into the profession. Govinda, her father, didn't offer her any professional assistance.
Never took father's help
Govinda’s Daughter Tina made her debut in 2015 with the release of "Second Hand Husband." Her acting debut was in an understated manner, in a low-budget film, and in a time when star kids are introduced with fanfare, promotions, and grandeur. Whereas, Tina's debut was brief, like a silent film that came and went. But, Tina is proud of everything she's accomplished, including her name, fame, and opportunities. She once stated in an interview with Times of India that she never attempted to utilise her father's connections to secure film proposals for herself. She claimed that if nepotism had played a role in her career, she would have signed numerous films. Tina asserted that she earned every movie role on her own.
"My dad hasn't helped me yet, and I've never asked him to," she continued. "I will never be referred to as a nepo child because I earned the opportunities based solely on my own merits. My father was aware of my actions and inactions. He does not, however, ever impede my work. I can't be considered a nepo-kid because he has never called anyone to request a movie. Even so, he is really supportive.”
Tina's works and achievements
In addition to Second Hand Husband, Tina has worked on the films Zindagi Ka Rahasya, FryDay, Driving me Crazy, Kaaghaz, and the music videos for Milo Na Tum and Lakk Shake. Tina, a young and brilliant actress, was awarded Emerging Actress at the Indian Leadership Conference and Indian Affair Business Leadership Awards in 2016. 2017 saw her earn the Young Achievers Award from the Hallway Foundation.
Well, not everyone is capable of embracing hardship even when they have access to all the resources. As someone who firmly believes in putting in the necessary effort and achieving success on her own, Tina Ahuja serves as the ideal role model. In response, we say Jay-Ho! Tina. We wish her the best of luck in the future and hope she achieves the same level of success as Govinda, our idol.
