“My mum told me that I used to play in front of the mirror a lot, acting. And whenever I would see a child playing a role on TV, I’d always say I could do that as well and do it even better than that person. So she looked for an agent for me and when she found one, we went for auditions.I did everything they asked me to do and I became an actress,” she said.
