Sapna Thakur’s journey as an actor
In a candid conversation with us, the Kyun Rishton Mein Katti Batti actor Sapna Thakur recently opened up about what her journey of becoming an actor looked like. According to Sapna, barriers need to be broken at home first, before anywhere else. Sharing her experience, she revealed that the woman behind her success today is none other than her own mother, who she said is also her idol. Hailing from the city of Chandigarh, Sapna encountered a lot of unwanted commentaries around the lines of how pursuing an acting career might not be a good idea due to her gender and how being in the industry could be extremely unsafe too. However, the actor stated that despite such conservative concerns of society about the risks of being a girl in the media industry, her mother supported her every step of the way. Sapna also added that her mother raised and treated her no different than how she would have done it if she was her son.
Overcoming various hurdles and barriers
Sapna Thakur then revealed that when she initially shifted to Mumbai, around 10 years ago, to pursue an acting career in the city, she did come across various hurdles and challenging situations merely due to her gender. However, given the upbringing that she received from her mother while growing up, such blockages on the path couldn’t stop her from chasing her dreams. The actor further added that no matter how hard society may try to discourage you, ignoring it is the best solution. Keeping your goals in focus and moving forward towards them is bound to ensure your growth and success.

Sapna’s challenge for others
Talking about she would #ChooseToChallenge this year, the actor stated that it would be people’s fear of society. Society often discourages women and comments on their clothing, profession, work timings and much more. However, Sapna clarified that such concerns by the society around us truly do not matter and that one deserves to feel free to make their own choices without the constant fear of society.

Sapna Thakur insisted that every mother, especially the ones who might not have been able to achieve their own dreams, should always back their daughters up and push them to chase their own goals in life. The actor emphasised that she truly believes that through their work and achievements, every daughter has the ability to make their parents and their nation proud.
