Child actors on the small screen seem to have two jobs. They are not only shooting for their shows, but also studying simultaneously. With perhaps a busier life than grown-ups, this Children’s day, we ask a few of them what they miss as they balance school and shooting for their respective television shows.
I feel blessed to have gained such an experience at this age. Because of my TV show, I have received a lot of love from all over the world. But somewhere I miss so many activities which I used to do earlier. Even though my studies are at par with the syllabus taught in school, I miss being in school with my friends. I used to participate in all the functions and celebrations like annual day, sports day, debates, children’s day celebrations etc. in my school. I miss watching my favorite cartoon shows on television as well.
The most I miss about school is studying and my best friend. We play a lot during breaks and always sit together. We sit in the library during recess and share our tiffins. I miss my school, my teachers who helped me through studying, extra-curricular activities like my sports day and specially being with my friends. I miss sports and I really miss running race.
I love going to school and spending time with friends. I would look forward to participating in activities in school and interacting with teachers. I would enjoy playing sports with friends at school. I was unable to do so with shooting. I specially miss my teacher who taught me how to dance.
I shoot only on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. So I don’t really miss out on much. I have my share of fun and play with friends. I attend my school regularly and I’m also doing my co-curriculars, so I’m happy shooting and studying.
