You have done three shows in four years…

She talks about her journey, her aspirations, and more.

I have learnt a lot from my shows, Sapne Suhane Ladakpan Ke (SSLK), Dil Ki Baatein Dil Hi Jaane and Aduri Kahaani Hamari. Though I have been playing lead roles for four years, I’ve been acting for seven years now. These four years have been wonderful. They have helped me evolve as an actor. This is only the beginning. There are many things that are yet to be done.

Was getting into the industry and surviving tough?

When I started out, many people demotivated me, wondering how I would manage work. Everyone around me felt that how will a young girl manage to do lead roles on TV, while coping with studies. But I proved myself. Yes, it was tough, but I managed well. I love multitasking. I remember, before SSLK, I had almost given up on acting, as I wasn’t getting good work. I thought I should continue only with my studies. But today, it’s unbelievable how far I have come. I want to make all my dreams come true. Age is just a number. Hard work always pays off.

You have bought a home on your own...

Yes, I bought one last year. It was a big dream. I wanted to do that for my mum and family. It motivated me to do more in life.
