The name Rashmi Nigam might not ring bells in your head. But the character in Madhur Bhandarkar’s film Heroine is said to be inspired by Gauri Khan and Sussanne Roshan. Rashmi Nigam plays the character of a star wife and that of actor Sanjay Suri in the film.
Rashmi Nigam says that the character she plays shows what a star wife has to go through. She further says that the time is tough when there are all kinds of rumors going on around about the relationship the spouse goes through. All that is extremely difficult to bear.
It is but natural for the wife to become a bit jealous. That is what the character of Rashmi Nigam has to portray in the film. However, in spite of all that, she always wishes her husband to achieve huge success no matter what.
Rashmi Nigam got the role by virtue of the auditions conducted. However, she is not bothered about the fact that she is playing a second fiddle to Kareena Kapoor in the film.
