The story read, “Last year, I visited my parents during Christmas in Allahabad. At dinner, a woman asked me for a picture! My mom was ecstatic. In her eyes, I had made it! As for me, I was glad for the dinner with them, because a lot had happened before. I had a simple upbringing. My dad was a doctor in the Railways & my mom was a teacher. You know how in movies you see a starry-eyed, small-town girl who wants to be an actor? I was her. I was captivated by Shakespeare in school & knew that this was what I wanted to do.”
“My parents were skeptical. But I told them I had to try. So for college, I moved to Bombay. Afterward, I got a job in a reputed Ad agency. I told myself I wasn’t good enough to be an actor yet. So with my job, I watched from the sidelines. One day, on set, I asked Shernaz Patel about her career. She said all I had to do was jump in & asked why I hadn’t yet? I was surprised that she could tell I was interested. I was just 23, it was now or never. So in a month, I quit my job. I auditioned, worked in plays & was freelancing as an A.D to pay the bills.”
She further narrated, “After about a 100 auditions, ‘web series permanent roommates’ happened & then 2 films. And I didn’t stop for 2 years! I hadn’t been home, but a phone call changed it all. My dad had had a brain stroke. I was devastated. My brothers & I got my parents to Bombay. But in 2 months, my mom was diagnosed with uterine cancer. Nothing mattered now. We spent the next few months in hospitals. My dad couldn’t speak properly & my mom was staying strong for us. None of my achievements web series permanent roommates or the films felt worth it. My family mattered more than a successful career.”
I’d grown up watching my parents work unending hours. So I tried to do the same, for them. But I was losing out on staying connected to my roots. So last year, even when I was recognized at dinner, I was just happy to be with my parents there. And all we did when we went home was switch on the T.V & fall asleep in front of it. Just like old times. I’d learned what real success was. It wasn’t growing apart but growing up & staying connected to my roots. Where I came from, my home, my family, the fact that they were proud, that made all the difference. That was my success.”
