I was very sad when I heard that the show was going to end. The Na Bole Tum Na Maine Kuch Kaha unit is like a family. I am happy that there will be a second season now.
Are you like Nanhi in real life?
Yes I am quite like her. However I don't wear glasses.
Will you be continuing with the show? Or will there be a leap of a few years which demands a much older Nanhi?
I don't know that as yet. However it will be nice to continue with the show.
I heard you bond very well with Kunal Karan Kapoor...
I bond with him in real life like we bond in the show. We are very good friends and I sometimes call him Spiderman in real life. When I want to irritate him I address him as Monu, to which he replies, "Hey Chawanni sunna."
How do you bond with Aakanksha Singh?
We are very good friends. In fact I am like her daughter. We share the same makeup room too. We felt very sad last night when she left yesterday as she had take her exams.
How do you bond with Shivansh Kotia who plays Addu?
We are best friends. We both study in Ryan International- he is in Class II whereas I am in Class IV. While in school I often go over to his class to meet him. Interestingly his real sister's name is also Navika and as you know I am also called Navika on the show.
How do you manage both school and acting?
My mother is very particular that my studies and health shouldn't be affected while I juggle between the two. She has left her job so that she can ensure that. She teaches me on the sets. I get A+ and A's in school. Studying is like my hobby. I like all subjects especially Science.
What are your other hobbies?
Swimming, drawing, dancing, colouring and singing.
What do your friends say when they see you act?
They love to take my autographs, many of them are crazy about the show and want to know about the artists and the track. My friends visit india-forums.com to check my rank.
What do you want to be when you grow up?
I want to be an actress or a doctor. As a doctor I wish to help the poor.
