Baroda girl Shrenu Parikh, who bagged a lead role in "Havan" on Colors right after her first show "Gulaal" on Star Plus, says she may be lucky to get good roles but things were not so hunky-dory when she came here to find her share of fame.
"I had my own share of troubles. I used to travel in trains without ticket, struggled without a house in Mumbai. I was new here, I belonged to Baroda... Many people come to Mumbai and struggle, but I have been blessed with good producers," she said.
She comes from a very conservative family, but despite that she nurtured the dream of wearing grease paint and facing the camera.
"I belong to a conservative Gujarati family. Acting was no where in the scene. But I used to dream about it. I was six when Aishwarya Rai Bachchan won Miss World... But then things just happened and I started opening up and telling my mom about my inclination towards acting," she said.
However, her parents had different dreams for her.
"My mom wanted me to become a singer and my dad wanted to see me as a doctor. I have done pharmacy, so I have fulfilled my dad's dream and I sing in shows for my mom," she said.
The family supports her career as an actress now, she said.
"I was very scared about how they will react. Now my whole family, which is huge, is so proud of me. They are more excited than me. They are supportive," she said.
