TV ac­tor Sanaya Irani (right), who is cur­rently a par­tic­i­pant on a celeb dance re­al­ity show, says that it’s very im­por­tant to be pas­sion­ate about your pro­fes­sion. The 31-year-old, who has been seen in shows such as Mi­ley Jab Hum Tum and Ran­grasiya, says that her pas­sion for act­ing drives her ca­reer. “I feel that it is very im­por­tant to love what you choose to do in life. I don’t act to be fa­mous or just to earn money. I act be­cause I love to,” she says.

Such is her pas­sion for act­ing that Sanaya, who ear­lier only spoke English, worked hard to learn Hindi and says that she wants to con­tinue im­prov­ing her­self. “Learn­ing Hindi was a tough task for me. I still have to work on get­ting the ac­cent right. Ev­ery day is a new chal­lenge, but you learn, im­prove and be­come bet­ter,” she says.

Mean­while, the ac­tor is busy learn­ing new dance forms for her up­com­ing show. “The show is my first step to­wards dance and I’m re­ally look­ing for­ward to learn as much as I can. I’m both ner­vous and ex­cited,” says Sanaya, adding: “Danc­ing was never my cup of tea and it will be dif­fi­cult for me. I have to work hard to give my hun­dred per­cent.”

I feel it’s very im­por­tant to love what you choose to do in life. I don’t act to be fa­mous or just to earn Learn­ing Hindi was a tough task. I still strug­gle in get­ting the ac­cent right
