Dangal fame Sanya Malhotra is currently in the happy phase of her life. Her debut film Dangal made box office records internationally. And now, she is gearing up for her second film Pataakha directed by Vishal Bhardwaj. She will also be seen in Badhai Ho opposite Ayushmann Khuranna. The trailer of the same was recently launched and it created a buzz among people for its quirky storyline.
Recently, Sanya brought a house in Mumbai for her parents. She said, “I am in a good place. Before Dangal, paying rent and moving house every year was a huge struggle. Now, I’ve bought my own house in the 4 Bungalows area with my hard-earned money”.
She further said, “Before, I used to live in a small rented house, and when my parents would visit me, I would feel bad, because I wanted them to be comfortable. It feels great to have my own place now”.
She recalls that she didn’t have an easy start at the career. In conversation with a leading daily, she said, “When I first came to Mumbai, my parents supported me a lot. But I wanted to be independent and I didn’t want to keep asking them for money. So I would try to manage with whatever little money I was making. I’ve always eaten simple food — so that was not a problem. Nor am I the kind of person who has midnight cravings. But I love fruits and dry fruits — and honestly, I couldn’t even afford apples. Dry fruits were out of the question.”
She further said, “I remember, when dad would come to meet me in those days, he would bring me boxes of dry fruits and I would relish them. My dad supports me to this day; I wouldn’t have made it here without my parents’ support.”
Since childhood, she wanted to become an actress. “My dream of acting, which I’ve held dear since childhood, is finally being fulfilled, and I’m happy about that. At this point of time, I’m having loads of fun,” said the Dangal fame.
