Recently, Itims got in touch with Sana, who expressed happiness and gratitude, reminding people that she is still Anjali. He said, “People will recognize you all these years later. I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to play such an important role at such a young age. And I was so young, I had no idea that such a character could go down in history. It makes me so humble and fun because I was like ‘Wow! Even when I was 8, people would recognize me (laugh). And every weekend, the movie is still on TV, so no one really forgot about it.
The actress opened up about her casting experience. She revealed that she was always a working child actor and doing commercials at the time. Talking about this, Sana said, “When I was a child, I was doing a lot of commercials. I auditioned with a lot of kids as they auditioned in different places and then I was shortlisted and finally selected. Asked if the process was easy or if she had to struggle, she said, “If you do what you love, it’s not really a fight. We call it a struggle as we grow up (laughs). Going to auditions in early childhood and trying to learn the conversation, I don’t call it a struggle. But if you continually follow what you love to do and love, it is a journey and it has its ups and downs. ”
Alina Bhatt, Varun Dhawan and Siddharth Malhotra spoke about their fond memories with Sana, SRK, Kajol, Rani and Salman Khan who made their adult debut in Karan’s ‘Student of the Year’. He called SRK very warm ‘and’ beloved ‘. “I had a beautiful experience working. And since I was a child there was so much love and they were so patient with me. I had most of my scenes with Shah Rukh and I remember him being very warm and loving. He was giving me time to do my lines and it was so comfortable to be around. It never felt like, ‘Oh God, you’re working with Shah Rukh’. He was a very warm and loving person and I thought it was very easy to work with him, ”he said.
She said, “Similarly with all the other actors, I haven’t had many scenes with Rani since she acted as my mother. But she dies in the movie after I was born. I didn’t interact much with her except my promos. Like, with Salman Khan and Kajol, everyone was really beautiful on set, they look after you like a little kid and we all love kids like you know. ”
Asked if he was in touch with any of his co-stars, he said, “I have not been in touch with any of them but I met Karan again for ‘Student of the Year’ and Shah Rukh’s company is building it. So I met him in sets. Karan was a judge and I met him again in ‘hala lak dikhlaja’. SRK was also there to promote the film, so I kept on meeting him. Likewise, life has come full circle and I will meet these people through work anyway. ”
Besides films, they have been part of numerous TV shows.
