Sanya Malhotra, who made an impressive debut with Dangal alongside Fatima Sana Shaikh and went on to win hearts with Badhaai Ho, recently revealed in a Humans of Bombay post that she always wanted to become an actor but did not reveal it to anyone as she expected to be refused. She even disclosed that she was rejected by Dance India Dance despite getting into top 100 as she did not have a "strong backstory." It is a known fact that despite all the reality in the reality shows, the participants are chosen carefully so as to instill a sense of empathy from the audiences. 

Sanya wrote, "I was that kid who danced at every wedding. I didn’t need any kind of incentive–just music! We’d spend 8 hours dancing every day! I was so passionate–but my real dream was to act. I never revealed this to anyone back home. I thought I’d be laughed at or ridiculed. After all, it’s a big dream. But I thought maybe, I could get to acting through dancing! So I applied for Dance India Dance & got to the top 100. But I got rejected because my backstory wasn’t strong. That’s when I thought maybe I wasn’t meant to perform at all."

She added that though the show rejected her, "it’s what got me to Bombay. I owed it to myself to at least try. So I told my dad about acting. To my surprise, he was supportive!" she added. Read her full post below.
