For someone as young as Apoorva Arora – she would be barely 19 in 2015 - she must have notched up some amazing feats, which very few have been able to do in the film industry so far. For one, in the very brief span of her career of 5 years between 2011 and 2015, she has already acted in films in 4 different languages as diverse as Kannada, Punjabi, Gujarati, along with Hindi. But statistical achievements alone do not sum up her feats. Her remarkable career is symptomatic of the hard work, driven obviously by ambition and aspirations, that teenagers of the current generation are capable of.
Apoorva had achieved in that role of Jenny in her very first film “
Bubble Gum” much beyond her 15 years at that time. This was no inconsequential fun film as the name might suggest, since it dealt with the growing up pangs during the transformation period of adolescence to adulthood. Very deservedly it was rated as one of the 5 best films of 2011. Her very next film “OMG: Oh My God!” was also with a different type of content and basically a satire on religious hypocrisy. Her role as the bubbly daughter of
Paresh Rawal drew a lot of attention for her performance in the film.
There was nothing special in her diversion to the Punjabi comedy “Disco Singh”, except that it was a big hit at the box office. Her two subsequent Hindi films “
Dekh Tamasha Dekh”, again a satire on religious bigotry; and “Holiday: A Soldier Is Never Off Duty”, an action movie that established her into mainstream Bollywood cinema. In the meanwhile she had already acted in two Kannada films, the latest one being “Kani” (combination of Kannada and Hindi), in which she plays a North Indian girl and her dialogues are all in Hindi. Besides mainstream cinema she has also branched out on a TV assignment for the Discovery Kids’ documentary television series, named Mystery Hunters India.
