Want industry to open up to outsiders: Soundarya Sharma

New Delhi: Actress Soundarya Sharma, who made her Bollywood foray with "Ranchi Diaries", says it would be nice to see the industry open up more to "non-star" children.

Asked if the industry made her feel like an outsider or she felt welcomed, Soundarya told IANS: "I will not say that I am struggling to fit in because I know my space. I already know what I am here for and I have a very clear thought process.

"But at the same time since I am a medical student and have no connections from the industry, so it makes it a little difficult to create your own name and niche. I have nothing against star kids." 

She feels star children have it easy. 

"I think a platform is given to them. Making it big or not in the career is a different thing... I feel that I would want to have my own niche. The industry was very welcoming when my film came. But I would want the industry to open up more to non-star kids," added the 24-year-old.
