This Bollywood actress reveals it wasn’t her childhood dream to act
Not every actor once dreamt of becoming an actor only. Saiyami Kher, who made her Bollywood debut with Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra‘s ‘Mirzya’, says she didn’t aspire to become an actress always.
“I didn’t always want to act. It wasn’t a childhood dream. My parents (Uttara Mhatre Kher, mother, and Adwait Kher, father) were both actors, but they took us away from all that to Nashik, Maharashtra, to give us a middle-class upbringing. They wanted us to know that there is another world beyond cinema and showbiz, which they succeeded in doing,” she says.
Saiyami drew attention after she featured in a popular swimsuit calendar. Prior to that, she used to be an athlete and has been a state-level cricketer and badminton player.
“When the acting bug bit me, things started flowing in the right direction. And in the process, I discovered myself,” she adds.
‘Mirzya’, though visually and musically enchanting, was a dud at the box office. However, the actress is amazed at how Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra brought out the best in her and says, ““He has been a teacher, a friend, and a philosopher, and has taught me to look at life from a different perspective. He is a family member now.”
Here’s wishing her many success!
