Aarna’s fascination for acting began when she was Two, she used to dress up and act in front of mirror for hours. She used to watch Bhabhiji Ghar par hai and act the entire day, for her it was all about having fun.
She made her debut with the show Paramavataar Krishna and I started my acting career with India’s Best Dramebaaz when I was 6.
My father is a business-man and mother a housewife. They have been our biggest support and always gave us freedom of imagination to enjoy the process in anything we do.
It was not an easy decision for them to leave their well settled life in our hometown Bhopal and shift to Mumbai for us. But they did it for our bright future.
We worked in shows like Mariam Khan Reporting Live, Kya Haal Mr. Paanchal and many more.
We got a remarkable opportunity to work as onscreen siblings Chintu and Chinnti on Balveer Returns. The show was amazingly popular among the kids.
With the show going off air, it was a wonderful journey for us. We enjoyed every day of our shoot and will cherish the experience lifetime.
During lockdown we were at home and that was when we started our YouTube channel with 300K subscriber, Where we continue to entertain as it’s a very lucrative platform for kids to showcase their talent.
In making these videos our mother spends considerable amount of time. She learnt how to shoot, handle lighting, managing our schedules and even writing scripts for us.
Our parents appreciate and support us in everything we do. And that is such a great feeling. We never felt that we are missing something out.
I am five years elder to my sister Aarna and our chemistry as brother sister is too beautiful and loved by people very much.
I have just completed my 10th grade and Aarna is in fourth standard. We manage acting and studies both. Our teachers and friends help us with the worksheets and notes so we get them and study on set or at home.
We feel soo proud to be recognized at this young age. My family and my fans play a major role in what we are doing today. Whenever we go outside, people recognize us even if we are wearing a mask. It’s an amazing feeling.
What’s truly enduring is that we are able to connect with children and adults equally.
