Actor Saiyami Kher is niece of actors Tanvi Azmi and Shabana Azmi and even though she looks up to them for inspiration, she is determined to make her mark in the film industry.

“They (Tanvi and Shabana) are powerhouse performers but I would like to create a path of my own. My personality is different from both my aunts and I hope people see the effort I put into my work in the coming times,” says Kher, who starred recently in Mirzya.

However, the actor does share little anecdotes her aunt Shabana shared with her before she stepped into films. “She constantly tells me to talk in Hindi and complains that our generation does not talk in Hindi. Before we started the promotions of Mirya, she advised me that if you had fun in the film, then you get to tell new things to people and media and it is always a great experience. This is what happened, I gave my heart to my film and now it has become a beautiful memory,” the 24-year-old actor says .

On the toughest thing about being an actor, she says, “The problem is that you are rehearsing in comfortable conditions, your performance is 100 per cent but when you have to do your scenes in a place like Ladakh or in rain, snow and storm, things become tough.”
