Nia Sharma is one of the most popular stars in the industry. The actress successfully created a niche for herself on her own. However, it wasn't an easy ride. The stunning actress had to work hard to get where she is now. And speaking of that, in a recent interview, Nia got candid as she opened up about the initial days of struggle in the industry. She talked about being out of work for several months after her show, Ek Hazaaron Mein Meri Behna Hai, went off air. She also shared that it was a difficult time as she was all alone, without any friends, and didn't earn a single penny.
Talking to radio host Siddarth Kannan, she shared, "When I came to this industry, I was all by myself. I was fresh from Ek Hazaaron Mein Meri Behna Hai, which was the show that made me. Uske baad poora ek saal ka gap tha."
The actress shared that after the show went off air, she didn't earn a single penny for over nine months. Nia said, "So after Ek Hazaaron Mein Meri Behna Hai till Jamai Raja, there was a nine-month gap. I was all alone in Mumbai. I had no friends because obviously, I was new. I stayed in my shell. I worked on myself, I started learning belly dancing. Woh jo 9 mahine guzar gaye and I realised ki koi kaam nahi tha, kuch nahi tha, not a single penny I had earned, no friends… I think woh ek period tha jo mujhe dobara nahi jeena tha (I never want to relive those nine months, when I had no work, no friends and did not earn a single penny)."
