4) Would you relate yourself with Elaichi in Real life?

A) It’s been a journey full of surprises . When I was a child artist I didn’t think that I was ever going to be a leading lady. I started my career with Sony SAB, with the show Lo Ho Gayi Pooja Iss Ghar Ki which was almost 9 years back. At that time there was no plan of pursuing a career in Television. But eventually I thought that this industry chose me. After a short stint in television I went back to my hometown to complete my studies but here I am, back after a good 4 years.
7) Are you a prankster in real life? Any particular prank you played which you still remember?
A) I am not very comfortable orchestrating pranks on people But yes I won’t mind participating in a planned prank. Whether it is in school, home or the set. Unfortunately, I am always the victim instead of the prankster.
