he is playing Parvati in Nikhil Sinha's
mythological show 'Devon Ke Dev...Mahadev on Life OK. Sonarika Bhadoria
is one amongst the
sweetest and charming actresses of small screen. She talked in a graceful deportment when Perfect Woman's correspondent
K Himaanshu Shukla met her on the sets of Mahadev…
Talking about the journey she said, "I
always wanted to become an actress, but I didn't plan to debut at the age of 17.
My masi who was a designer then, took me along with her in a party. A casting
guy spotted me there and asked me to come for the audition. At that time I was
in 10th standard. My dad said to get over with your 12th first and then you can
do whatever you want. On father's day I requested my dad to give me permission
to try my luck in acting. Like a loving father he accepted my demand. I was in class
Sonarika was supposed to play lead role in
Rajan Shahi's show, but unfortunately her debut show got scrapped. "After
my first show got scrapped I got a call for 'Tum Dena Saath Mera. They
shortlisted me to play Abhilasha in the show but the show ended abruptly. At
that time I was 19 years old and was not able to cope up with hectic shooting
schedules, so I went back my home in Lucknow for one month," said Sonarika.
While she was spending quality time in
Lucknow, she got a call to play Parvati. At that time Sonarika had decided to
quit television and wanted to concentrate on ads and films. At that time she
was quite cynical about playing the role of a Parvati. "When I received
the call for Mahadev, I politely said NO but they convinced me and finally
managed to pull me in. At that time I was told that, there were many well known
actors who were considered for the role.
Probably I was destined to play Parvati, that's why I was shortlisted.
By God's grace I didn't struggle a lot. This is all about my journey till date,
The still-in-her teens, striking actor
Sonarika never thought that her popularity as Parvati would be so vast. She is
getting great appreciation, endless love and genuine respect from people around
the globe for magnificent depiction of Parvati. Sometimes she really feels awkward, when fans
start relating to her onscreen divine image considering them to be like that in
real life too. "Occasionally people try to touch my feet and ask for my
blessings. I feel embarrassed but then I thank God for giving me such a nice
opportunity to portray such a beautiful role, "says Sonarika.
Petite actress just turned 20 and is
waiting for her Rajkumar. "People ask me about my relationship status
so I want to tell them I am very much single and looking forward to meet my
Rajkumar. I believe in fairy tales and prince charming." When asked
what qualities are required to woo her, she giggled and said "Pyaar...pyaar
aur sirf pyaar, aur kuch nahi. For me this is the most important factor. I
think looks matter till a certain period of time but love is forever. My
would-be should be kind hearted and must have a good sense of humor," she said blushing.
Rapid Fire with Sonarika...
I don't have any
dream roles. Being an actor I want to do lots of good work. I want to do
versatile roles, the roles which are women oriented, the roles which portrayers
me as women of substance, the role which shows real power of women and so on.
Basically I look forward to women-centric roles.
actor to work with…
I don't look up to anyone. I can't name a single person with whom I dream to
work with. But I want to become an actor with whom everyone dreams to work
I am always very happy from within. I think if you are
happy then automatically you are stay fit. I try to eat healthy and do
meditation whenever I get time. Power yoga is one of the best ways of staying
fit and healthy.
I'm blessed with good genes from my mom and dad. I don't drink
lots of water nor do I eat fruits. I am happy and peaceful and this is what
makes me beautiful. Let me tell you one
secret (laughs), the more I sleep the more beautiful I look. Sleep is the key to look beautiful and feel more
I am neither a
trend setter nor an ardent follower of fashion. I watch fashion trends but I wear
only what I like and in what I look good. I always dress up decently and wear
clothes in which I am comfortable. Most important thing according to me is
that, if you are comfortable with your body than everything will look good on
When Sonarika is
free she loves to…
I love sleeping;
it's my favourite pass time. I do meditation in free time. I love to read
fiction books. The Japanese novelist Haruki Murakami is my current favorite
author. These days I am reading his 'The Complete Trilogy'.
The real Sonarika
The real Sonarika
is bubbly, sweet and fun loving girl, who loves to spread love and positivity.
I am a present living
person. I don't live in the past and also don't think much about the future.
Past ke baare mein sochne se kya faayda. I just live in present. If your
present is happy then your future will automatically be contented.
