As soon as she learned about it, she expressed her excitement, recalling how she told her father that she wanted to pursue acting and do serials. Even at the age of 7, she had clear plans.

She remembered she was almost crying, thinking, ‘How will I do this, Dad? I don't understand anything.’ Even the casting director ensured that every line she spoke was delivered with perfection. Then, after being shortlisted, Balika Vadhu happened, and it changed her life.
