Opening up on how acting actually happened to her and more, Yaaneea said, “I have always aspired to become an astronaut so acting was something that just happened to me.

Giving her take on how because of OTT now even non filmy background actors are getting fame and recognition, Yaaneea responded, “It will be a lie if I say it isn’t true.

There’s no reason to deny that I have gotten my big break because of OTT”.
When asked about how she keeps herself positive and motivated in these tough times of ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Yaaneea added, “I try to carve out time in my day for workouts and relaxation, meditation, and prioritizing my mental health.

I also try to learn new habits and re-discover old ones”.
