The dream has come true for child actress Avika Gor of Balika Vadhu fame. Her soaring popularity on the small screen has landed her a role with veteran actor Anupam Kher in the movie Morning Walk by Arup Dutta.
“Oh! I am really excited. Dutta sir asked me to read out a poem in Hindi and English while taking my audition and I did it in one take.” And though she is euphoric about her role, she won’t say much. “You go and watch the movie... why should I tell you? Aap khud 10th July ko dekhiye.” But about her experience of acting with Anupam Kher, she has a lot to say. “It was wonderful working with Anupam uncle. Woh hamare saath bilkul bachche jaise ban jaate hain,” says Avika.
She particularly recalls one dining table scene. “Anupam uncle kept on tickling me with his feet... it was so funny,” she says.
Any future projects? “I don’t have any idea. It’s my dad who keeps an account. But I want to dance, act and do lots of TV shows. I want to do everything,” she says before signing off.
