Shah Rukh Khan's Kal Ho Naa Ho co-star Jhanak Shukla is 25 now, and 'not earning anything', but she doesn't mind
- Shah Rukh Khan's child co-star from Kal Ho Naa Ho, Jhanak Shukla, spoke in a video about why and how she 'lost the track' in her acting career, and how she is 'not earning anything' right now.
Jhanak Shukla, the child artiste who worked with Shah Rukh Khan in Kal Ho Naa Ho, is now in her mid-20s, and has taken a step back from acting.
In a new video doing the rounds online, she said that she had worked a lot by the time she was around 15, and decided to take a break. "That's where I lost the track, when it comes to acting," she said. The video was shared on Tuesday by Brut India.
Jhanak, who also starred in the sitcom Karishma Kaa Karishma, said in the video that while she was an 'extrovert' when she was younger, she is now the 'opposite' of that and prefers spending alone time. She is now an archaeologist.

"When I was young, I used to think when I'll be 24 I'll be earning a lot, and I'd be settled and married," she said, adding with a laugh, "I'm 25 and I'm not earning anything." Jhanak said that she eventually wants to move to New Zealand and work in a museum there, and live a 'quiet life'.
Last year, another of Shah Rukh's old co-stars, Jibraan Khan from Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, resurfaced. Son of actor Firoz Khan, Jibraan said in an interview that he does not want to ask his father for help to find work in the industry.
