Actor Rithvik Dhanjani who keeps using his free time to take on more classes and hone his craft of acting will soon be seen speaking on the prestigious platform, TED Talks. While only a handful of faces from television have made it to this prestigious platform, Rithvik’s fan base across ages and especially the youth made him a top choice for the makers.
Speaking about the same Rithvik said, “Its a great opportunity for me to share my experience and my journey so far. I’ve chosen a topic which is relatable to each and everyone in the audience and I’m hoping that in the 18 minutes I’m able to do justice to the topic on hand and make a difference.”
On being asked what topic he will be addressing and Rithvik said, “I believe that ‘YOU’ are the creator and the destroyer and there have been many instances in my own life and in my journey as an actor in which I am able to connect these thoughts on various levels.” We all need our fuel and those around us who keep motivating us and providing us with moral support. In Rithvik’s case, his source of moral support has been his girlfriend Asha. “Asha has been extremely encouraging as well as a great morale booster for me. “Besides that Ravi Dubey has always inspired me to think in a way different from the realm of preconceived notions, and Karn Wahi has been an integral part of my moral support as well.”
Another TV star Aashka Goradia will also be a keynote speaker at TED Talks later this month here. With a career spanning over 16 years and 22 shows to her credit, Aashka has carved a niche for herself on television. She has also launched 3D eyelashes under the brand Renee By Aashka.
“To be on the TED stage was a goal I had for myself, to be able to overcome the fear of speaking out loud. Not by holding ‘uncalled for opinions’. I value this stage and people who have been on this stage before, greatest learners have been on this stage,” Aashka said in a statement.
“This is not only an opportunity to speak what I have learned but also a challenge to accept, simply accept,” she added.
