She says, “I feel reality TV is the best medium to connect with your audience. Also, I want to challenge myself and try doing something I’m not comfortable with. I hope someday I can do reality shows, I find them exciting.”
Kashika didn’t have it easy in the industry and says like most others she too had her share of struggles. And hailing from a non-filmy family didn’t help matters. her struggle to make her place in the entertainment industry. “I don’t have a Bollywood connection in my family, and my folks are simple,” she says, adding, “But since I was keen on acting, I decided to pursue this vocation.”
Like a typical film buff, Kashika grew up on classical Bollywood music. “Thereafter, I started getting interested in acting. My family too supported me and they allowed me to learn singing, Kathak dance, and martial arts when I was only 5,” she says.
Kashika followed it up with a course in acting when she was 16. “When I was little older, I enrolled in a full time acting course from a leading academy in New York. However, I don’t think acting is an art that can be tutored. It is something that has to come from within you. As for me, I have always believed that I am a born actor! I don’t need to learn acting,” she signs off.
