From Ads To Silverscreen – Coco Cola Girl Onima Kashyap Is Traversing The Spectrum Like A True Star

The Coca Cola girl, who is also a professional canvas artist, found success in the  ad industry and soon is going to be seen in Bollywood. No matter what part of  the country you are living in, you have seen the poster of Onima  Kashyap, stylishly gulping the Coke. But in the sea of newcomers rarely do you  come across a face as innocent as Onima Kashyap. She is not strictly a  newcomer since she has already made mark in several commercials like Limca,  Nivea, Kalyan Jewellers, Lux, Lays, becoming a very familiar face on small  screen.

Being a gifted artist she portrays her paintings under the label ‘Onima  Creation’. She says “being an artist, I find ways of communication through  which I can express my thoughts and emotions to the world. Creativity is the  driving force behind both the mediums, be it acting or painting.There is a  constant urge in me to imagine and create things around me andActing is one  of the medium through which I can transform my thoughts into existence. I  have a vivid imagination and it helps me to pull off a character easily as it  makes me more sensitive towards it … It’s a spiritual process indeed as in order  to portray the emotion of the character we need to introspect and figure out  our own life journey. It’s like putting my soul out there and perform.One needs  to be really honest to create a good piece of art, be it music, painting or  cinema.”

   

Onima’s favourite commercial was for Limca directed by Ram Madhvani. The actor recalls, “Every ad came through after rigorous auditions. Onima finds  the ad industry incredibly professional while being exhilaratingly creative as  well. We asked her that her magic bricks ad made quite an impression when it  came out. Does doing ads contribute to the actor in you

She explains with a laugh,

“The real test of an actor in an ad is to emote in just 30 seconds as the script is  more concise. If I can connect to the audience, inhabit a character and tell astory in such a short span of time I feel I have done my job in a good way. I love  doing ad campaigns and I want to continue doing it.”

Onima has shared screen space with actors like Shahrukh Khan, Amitabh  Bachchan, Amir Khan,` Vivek Oberio, Anushka Sharma and Rajkumar Rao. Her  learning from these veterans, she says, is how to be an indulgent performer.  Her honesty brings out the truthfulness of the character she plays onscreen.
