Sanaya Irani is one of the most popular Television actors. She has proved her acting mettle with shows like Left Right Left, Miley Jab Hum Tum, Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon and many others.
Apart from being a part of such interesting shows, Sanaya was also a part of a Bollywood film Fanaa. It starred Kajol and Aamir Khan in lead roles. Sanaya's role was very small in the film. After that, she didn't take up any Bollywood film.
When a leading daily asked her why she isn't signing any films after Fanaa, Sanaya said that being a part of that film was a mistake.
"Everyone keeps talking about Fanaa, but let me just make it clear — Fanaa wasn’t a route to get into Bollywood. It was a mistake, honestly. To be in the movie and just walk in the background. When I was offered the film, I thought ‘this sounds fun’. However, I had a great time meeting and shooting with Aamir and Kajol, who are great in their craft," said the actor.
Sanaya Irani also added, "I have been offered two-three films, which I have said ‘no’ to — which may have been wrong (on my part), as they went on to become big. But, I haven’t been offered something worth my while."
In an interview earlier, the actor said that she has been lucky to get good opportunities to work in amazing TV shows.
Sanaya had said, "I remember I started doing TV with youth-centric shows like Miley Jab Hum Tum. I have been very lucky in my career to get good opportunities. I have never done a show in my life just for the sake of a job."
