“Reaching to such big a city was a kind of a big surprise for me. I knew I had to start from scratch to follow my passion in acting. I knew that struggle will be there as film industry is no easy place. My college mates were into film-making course, so I collaborated with them and acted in short film ‘Road to Elimination’. That’s how I began acting and started auditioning and attending workshops till I got break on TV on ‘Savdhaan India’ followed by ‘Diya aur Baati Hum’ and ‘Girls on Top.’ I did a lot of short films among them ‘Soch’ and ‘Rang’ were like by many.’

Anyway, I am thrilled that things are finally showing up for me. I play Aanchal, a forest officer in the film.
