I was really camera-friendly and after that, my first project was ‘Ankahee’ under Vikram Bhatt’s direction. So, that was my first encounter with the camera,” she says.

She further shares her journey as a child star to playing a lead role: “It’s been going great; from playing the child star to playing the lead role. When I was a kid, I gained a lot of fame through my shows, one of which was ‘Naagin’.
