She felt she had worked so hard to give her children an easy life. But I didn't want that, I wanted a fulfilling one. I aspired to have that creative expression, that experience in real life with the struggles. I am very thankful for everything I have, but I am hungry to experience more than whatever has been given to me," DNA quoted Janhvi.
