Adah Sharma made her acting debut back in 2008
Adah Sharma has become the talk of the town and the most popular personality. However, people aren’t aware that she is in the industry for over 22 years now. The actress made her debut in the Bollywood industry with the lead role in the 2008 horror movie, 1920, which was a box office success. Moreover, she was also awarded the Best Female Debut Award for this film.
Her next big Bollywood release was the romantic comedy film Hasee Toh Phasee in 2014 starring Parineeti Chopra and Sidharth Malhotra. Sharma also ventured into the South Indian film industry. She played the leading lady in Telugu films including S/O Satyamurthy and Kshanam.
The Diva also featured in the thriller Commando 2, where she plays the female lead role of an inspector opposite actor Vidyut Jammwal. She played the role of a transgender woman in an MX Player web series, Pati Patni Aur Panga in 2020. However, none of these works created a huge magic at the box office.

But, I did tell the film’s director Sudipto sir that, at a time when people are saying that I will be getting many awards for the film, my only dream was to have EVERYONE see the film, which would be my biggest award. That dream is coming true now.”
