My maternal uncle was a cameraman. My mother was an actress and producer, my daddy was an actor and director, so I never wanted to act, because I felt like this is a profession where no one lives in the house. But it seems like God had different plans for me and I have no complaints.” ALSO READ: Main Bhi Ardhangini Hits Century; Deepshikha Nagpal Turns Santa Claus To Celebrate 100 Episodes Run
