During her recent interview, Sanjana spills about early acting days with Imtiaz Ali’s Rockstar.
Sanjana revealed that she was merely just 14 years old when she signed the film Rockstar and also spoke at length about how she juggled her studies and acting together that time where before her standard 9th final exams she shot for the film.
The film Dil Bechara shattered all the OTT and digital records of this year becoming the biggest hit film of 2020 where Sanjana Sanghi has been named as IMDB’s Breakout Star Of The Year. But before making it big in the dreamy Bollywood spotlight in midst of lights, camera and action, Sanjana started her acting journey as a teenager. With ace film maker Imtiaz Ali’s Rockstar (2011), Sanjana was just 14 years old when she shot for the film just before her 9th standard final exams.
Sanjana who never neglected her studies and was very bright student explained about how it was too difficult but she managed it where during her recent interview with a leading indian entertainment tabloid, opening up about the same, she said, “I have had to do all sorts of things like have my practice papers couriered to me while I was shooting in Kashmir, completed them, and couriered them back to my teachers because I was shooting for Rockstar just before my ninth grade final exams”.
She further continued and also asserted that it affected her in the starting but after some time, she got used to it. Throwing more emphasis on this point, she said, “I would work part-time at different organisations every summer and winter break through college, miss most college fests because I would be shooting, not be able to make it to important friends’ and family’s celebrations. It would irk me initially, but then I learned to make my peace with it”.
