It wasn’t a smooth jour­ney to star­dom for tele­vi­sion ac­tor Parul Chauhan (above). The ac­tor, who started her ca­reer on small screen with the show Woh Rehne Waali Mehlon Ki, says she had to strug­gle a lot to make a name for her­self in the in­dus­try. Rem­i­nisc­ing early days of her ca­reer, Parul shares that she had started her jour­ney in Mum­bai in 2005 and had to work re­ally hard for two and a half years to fi­nally land a good project. “I did not know what it takes to be­come an ac­tor. For me, it was like learn­ing on the job. The process changed my life com­pletely as it taught me a lot,” says Parul, who rose to fame with Sapna Babul Ka... Bidaai and later did shows such as Jha­lak Dikhhla Jaa 3, Rish­ton Se Badi Pratha and Pu­nar Vi­vah Ek Nayi Umeed. The ac­tor says that she got her big break with her show Bidaai. “Peo­ple, who used to think that I will not able to do any­thing, I proved them wrong. Bidaai def­i­nitely changed my life. It made me who I am to­day,” she says, adding that the suc­cess had made her more grounded. Talk­ing about the kind of char­ac­ters she wants to ex­plore next, Parul says, “As an ac­tor, I would like to por­tray dif­fer­ent char­ac­ters. I am cur­rently play­ing a mother in a show, and I might ex­plore some other char­ac­ters in fu­ture.”
