Dipika Kakar- a name which got famous in no time with her show, Sasural Simar Ka, then went on to win the last season of Bigg Boss, and is now returning to the world of fiction with her show, Kahan Hum Kahan Tum, co-starring, Karan V Grover. The beautiful actress is a sensation on social media and enjoys a crazy fan-following. However, Dipika gives the credit of all this to Natrang actress, Sonalee Kulkarni.

In an exclusive interview with SpotboyE.com, Dipika revealed how Sonalee, who is also her best friend from school, guided her at a time when she was clueless about her career. Dipika had quit her job of an air-hostess because of health issues and was in a dilemma about what to take up next.

“I was flying for 3 years as an air-hostess but due to my medical issues, I had to quit. Of course, I was fluttered as I didn’t have a job. At that time my best friend and classmate, Sonalee Kulkarni, told me that I should not stress so much, after all, flying is a tiring job. She suggested why I don’t try exploring acting on TV. My mother also got excited with the idea. So, she got my portfolio done, shared a lot of contacts with me and helped me in auditions. I would say she is the reason why I became an actress. She shared a lot of email ids and circulated my folio, after which I started getting calls for auditions. Believe me my initial ones were so bad that I myself laugh over them, today,” Dipika told us.

The Saural Simar Ka actress further added, “I got my first break after 8 months which was Shakuntalam Productions’ show, Neer Bhare Tore Naina- Devi, which went off-air in one-and-a-half month, but people think that Sasural Simar Ka is my first show. Then I had a character role in Agle Janam Mohe Bitiya Hi Kijo which also went off-air within 7 months of me joining. So, Sasural Simar Ka gave me all the boost and recognition.”
