A lot of people don’t know this but my first show was Balika Vadhu, I played a cameo role and at that point I didn’t know anything about acting. I was badly treated there. My director would never take my shot, only the assistants would take shots. They would call me early in the morning and make me sit for the entire day and probably in the evening I would shoot a scene. My director would always be irritated with me and I understand it now. But at that time I could not understand why they were behaving like that with me.”
