“Nobody can make you an actor or teach the art of acting to you. Acting workshops have only made it fun and consistent for me to practise acting, not learn acting. I’d rather put in my own skills than trying to adapt to someone else’s. That’s the best part about acting. I’m a born actor and I know it. I don’t need to learn acting. I’m bound to practise it,” she declared.

She added that she comes from a background that has nothing to do with showbiz.

“I belong to a simple family where we didn’t have any association with the entertainment industry, but it was my passion for this art that made me pursue acting. Growing up, I used to watch a lot of movies and listen to Bollywood music. Soon I developed an interest in acting. With the support of my family, I started learning singing, Kathak and martial arts at the age of five,” she says.

“When I saw what my mother was going through because of the virus, I had told myself that I would devote time to save as many people as possible. If we, the privileged people of the country, can go through such harrowing time, just imagine what others much be going through,” she said.

“It is our duty as citizens of the country to stand up and do something. It is our duty to be there for our fellow citizens,” she added.

About her initiative, Covid Warrior, she said: “It has been overwhelming to receive so many SOS calls from across the country. Our mission has been to help as many people as possible. I am sure we will win over the virus. For now, we will have to stand next to each other and help. We will have to constantly look out for each other.” (IANS)
