Do you remember a cute Lil girl ‘Gia’ in Shahrukh Khan and Priety Zinta’s film ‘Kal Ho Na Ho’ ?
Well, Jhanak Shukla is all grown up to be a pretty woman. She is 25 now. Jhanak Shukla, the daughter of actress Supriya Shukla, is also known for her performance as robot Karishma in the TV show Karishma Kaa Karishma.
A video of Jhanak is doing rounds on the internet. In a video interview with Brut India, Jhanak can be heard saying that by the time she was 15-16, she had worked a lot and as she grew up she felt that she had missed out on a part of her childhood because of the kind of work she indulged herself into.
When asked if she gave up acting because she was fed up of it, Jhanak said, “I was not actually fed up of acting. I was 15 or 16 so I was like, ‘I have to chill now.’ Because during childhood I had worked a lot but also my parents, they made me take breaks in between. I used to even go to school on a regular basis and I did my homework and everything, it was fun but somewhere I missed a small part of my childhood. So. my parents were also like, ‘Take a break now.’ So, that’s somewhere I lost track when it comes to acting.”
“When I was young, I used to think when I’ll be 24 I’ll be earning a lot, and I’d be settled and married,” she said, adding with a laugh, “I’m 25 and I’m not earning anything.” Jhanak said that she eventually wants to move to New Zealand and work in a museum there, and live a ‘quiet life’.
