It feels like a dream. I never thought that I would be a part of Anupamaa. When I was offered the role, I had no clue I was doing Anupamaa and that I was doing a replacement role.

My mother motivated me to pursue this art form. It was her dream that I decided to fulfil. There was an ad on Facebook that was about the requirement of a young actor for Gumrah. My mother sent my pictures to the casting director without much hope. But within 5-10 minutes she got a call. Initially she thought someone was playing a prank but then the makers told her that I am being finalised for the role and they are going to pay us a decent amount. So we decided to give it a try.
