Actress Ridhi Dogra is having one of the best phases of her career right now. She kicked off the year with the release of the action-packed thriller Lakadbaggha and is waiting for the release of two films starring two superstars of Bollywood, Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan.

The actress will be appearing in Salman's upcoming film Tiger 3, which is produced by Yash Raj Films and directed by Maneesh Sharma who earlier delivered - Band Baaja Baaraat, Ladies vs Ricky Bahl, Shuddh Desi Romance and Fan.

Asked about her reason behind doing the film, Ridhi told OTTplay, "Honestly speaking I was occupied with another project when the opportunity of the film came my way for Tiger 3. It was not planned to do a film because, at that point in time, I was shooting for a web show. But my reason for doing the film Tiger 3 is Maneesh Sharma the director of the film. You see, I came to Mumbai for higher studies and then I was working with an ad agency and TV channel before getting into acting. I knew Maneesh since then, though I did not know much about his direction style etc, it was there in my mind that someday I would love to work with him."

She went on to add, " Maneesh and I are one those friends in the party who would come on the dance floor saying 'I know this dance step better' and we would dance, laugh and do all the madness. He was my first friend in Mumbai. So, when Shanoo (the casting director) told me that Maneesh Sharma is directing, I did not even read the script, I just said,'yes' to the film!"

Ridhi is receiving positive reviews for her performance in the latest released film Lakadbaggha in which she portrayed the character of a police officer named Akshara D Souza.

The film, also starring Anshuman Jha as the protagonist along with Milind Soman, Piyush Pahuja among others, is now playing in theaters.
