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.
