"I love picking up challenges. I want to do every kind of role. If I can show my talent of laughing, crying and acting in front of people, then I would love to do any role," Avika told IANS.
There is a common notion that child artists miss out on living a normal life amidst the stardom, but Avika begs to differ.
"If this had been the case, then I would not have been doing all this. This is something different than normal life and I love it. People ask for my autograph and tell me which episode they liked and I love it," said Avika, who is currently seen in "Sasural Simar Ka".
"Who doesn't like attention and I get it from good people. I feel good that I am pursuing my hobby and people like it," she added.
Avika is set to put on her dancing shoes to be a part of dance reality show "Jhalak Dikhhla Ja" as a wild card entry along with choreographer Sanam Johar. She will compete with Neha Bhasin, Rashmi Desai, Karan Wahi, Rithwik Dhanjani and Jay Soni.
"I am excited and I want to prove myself. I love dancing. I have been learning dance since I was 4 years old. Then at the age of 10 when I started doing 'Balika Vadhu', I stopped learning it. Through 'Jhalak...' I am again getting the opportunity to dance," she said.
Avika's big screen career also seems to be kicking off in a big way. After doing films like "Paathshaala" and "Tezz", she is set to debut as a leading lady with a female-oriented movie "Kaanch".
"I am doing a movie called 'Kaanch' and it is being directed by Kalpana Lazmi. This is a female oriented movie," she said.
