“She needed a hero, so that’s what she became.”
Born in a typical Maharashtrian family and being the eldest daughter, she knew she had to break the shackles of her conservative community to prove that women can make it even if they chose to take the path less travelled. As a determined young girl she was never overawed by money or fame but instead was drawn towards working for a cause, while blending it with my passion for arts. And that’s how started her journey of becoming a successful social activist, counsellor, actor, writer and producer.
