So I scored 93% in my 10th boards!💪🏻 . Yes it was tough, managing my shoot as well as my studies, because I am equally passionate about both! I had promised myself to score above 90% and I did! People have the stereotype that child actors won’t be good at studies, and I wanted to break this stereotype!! When everyone had a full month study leave in Feb, I was shooting the entire month, when everyone had 5-7 days before one exam, I had a mere 2-3 days... Shooting for 12 hours with heavy scenes, studying while travelling the car, going back home and studying till 1:30am(sometimes even 2:30am) and getting up next morning again around 5:30am, study, get ready and leave for shoot... Also studying on sets, between shots.. And that’s how MY HARDWORK DID PAY OFF! Thank you almighty, my parents; Pa @gurmeetsingh0911 and Mom, my school for always being so supportive @Ryan.group and my production house #KathaKottage the team of #PatialaBabes and @sonytvofficial for the cooperation. ❤️ . .

The actor said that she is aware of the balance she needs to strike between work and education. She said, “I have always been passionate about both. I know if I join acting as a full-fledged career in the future, then that will take place only after my studies.”
Asked how she managed to perform well on both stages, she said, “It was hectic to manage and remember dialogues along with my studies. I would always study in my makeup room and also wake up at 5:30 am and study before leaving for sets. My teachers had also told me that I could take extra classes from them and clear doubts if any. I had the support of my school, parents and the production team of my show for my studies.”
Taking to Instagram to share the news, Ashnoor wrote, “People have the stereotype that child actors won’t be good at studies, and I wanted to break this stereotype!!
