How Surbhi Developed Interest In Acting?
Talking about how Surbhi got into acting, the Ishqbaaaz actress’ mother told the portal, “I was not surprised when she told me she wants to be an actor. I had an actor friend who used to tell me all about her work and I was sort of obsessed with it. I would share those stories with Surbhi and I think that had inspired her in some ways.”
Surbhi’s Mother Used To Accompany To Photoshoots With Her
Surbhi revealed that her mother used to accompany her to photoshoots, but when it came to acting, she used to criticise her a lot.
The Ishqbaaaz actress revealed, “When I was doing my graduation that is when I decided to give this a shot and my mom was very encouraging. She would take me for auditions. We got a photoshoot done. When I was doing BMS, she took voluntary retirement. So, I used to take her to auditions and she would make me memorise my lines. She would criticise me so much, she would tell me I couldn’t act.”
