New Delhi:

Remember Jhanak Shukla, the girl who played the role of little Gia Kapur in the film by Shah Rukh Khan, Preity Zinta and Saif Ali Khan Kal Ho Naa Ho? She was number one on the trend list on Thursday after a recent video of her talking about “not winning anything” at the age of 25 surfaced on the internet. In a video for Brut India, Jhanak spoke of taking a break from acting when she was 15 and already felt “retired”. Jhanak Shukla, daughter of actress Supriya Shukla, is also known for her performance as robot Karishma on the TV show Karishma Kaa Karishma.

Speaking of taking a break from movies and shows, Jhanak said, “My retirement has already started. My parents say that because I don’t work as much. I relax. I make soaps. I wander. write sometimes. ‘did my masters so I’m like,’ it’s okay. ‘”

When asked if she had given up playing because she was fed up, Jhanak said: “I wasn’t really fed up with playing. I was 15 or 16 so I thought to myself: ‘ I have to relax now. ‘ Because during my childhood I had worked a lot but also my parents, they made me take breaks in between. I even went to school regularly and I did my homework and everything, it was fun but somehow Apart from that I missed a little part of my childhood. So my parents would also tell me, “Take a break now.” So that’s somewhere where I lost track when it comes to playing. “

Jhanak Shukla is now an archaeologist. She loves her life now but that’s not what she imagined when she was a child. “When I was little, I had in mind that I will be 24 years old, I will earn a lot, I will be married and settled. I am 25 years old and I am not earning anything. But my parents support me a lot ”.
