In a new interview, Sanah said that when she was in school, her mother Supriya's character Hansa Parekh--from the sitcom Khichdi--became a hit and everyone used to ask to play the role during her school's annual function. Sanah said that she ‘hated it’ and it seemed like an ‘insane pressure’ at that time.
Sanah Kapur told Indian Express, “When I was in middle school, Hansa had happened, and it had become quite a rage. At that time during the annual day functions, everyone would ask me to be Hansa! In school, I used to just hate it because everyone kept wanting me to be Hansa. I was terrible (at it) and I didn’t want to do my mom’s role because that’s insane pressure. I didn’t participate in a lot of annual days only because I didn’t want to be Hansa."
She added, “I remember I used to think that acting is the only profession in the world, when I was very young, I would ask people, ‘Oh you parents do something different?!’ If they would tell me their parents were doctors or a businessman, I wanted to know what that world was like because it was completely alien. People were curious about my world, they thought it was glamourous, but it was absolutely normal."
