Mrunal Thakur has fought against a lot of judgment from people, whether it's for her TV background or for the way she dressed up or looked. Mrunal reveals several incidents where she lost out on big films like Dangal, Sultan & Thugs of Hindostan, and also shares moments where she felt differential treatment from people and the media. 

Yes, for those who don't believe it, Mrunal, who later made her big Bollywood debut with Super 30, had almost been locked for Aamir Khan's Dangal. But she reveals how she lost out on the Nitesh Tiwari directorial, because of her TV commitments. "I remember I was testing for Dangal and Mukesh Chhabra was casting for it. The role was so tough; it needed workshops. They were selecting firls from all over India and I made it to top 20 or something. I remember I had to shoot for a Maha Episode for Holi for the show I was shooting for. I just couldn't a particular session of the workshop and I missed out on the film."

Not just that, the Batla House heroine adds that today, people used the term TV actor as an abuse to demean their contribution to entertainment. "I absolutely agree that it demeans and it's said in derogatory fashion that oh, TV se aayi hai. I have been told so many times that you need to stop partying and putting up pictures with your TV friends; you're a film actor now. And I'm like, 'That's my past, I can't wipe it. I'm very proud of it'."

Anonymous : Life is all about the choices we make including our careers regardless of the odds. TV actors reinforcing their own inferiority complex is counterproductive. They are not looked down upon because of the medium i.e. TV, they are looked down upon because of the regressive content they do on tv. How many people know her here due to her tv career?
