Aakanksha Singh set her image in the sight of audience after Na Bole Tum Na Maine Kuch Kaha and Gulmohar Grand. Talking about shedding her image of being a TBV actress she says – “When Na Bole… happened, I was young and took it up as a challenge to play a mother on-screen. Many had cautioned me not to debut with such a role or I might get stereotyped, but I thought people would cast me if they like my work. And, I was wrong. Post that show, I was only getting similar characters, even roles of mothers to 18-23 year-olds. I still get such offers on TV. Getting stereotyped on TV is no less than a nightmare, it’s really difficult to break a certain image”.

Talking about her role in Badrinath Ki Dulhaniya Aakanksha Singh says – “Though it was a supporting part. But I was at least playing a different character. I agree it’s difficult to get into Bollywood, especially when it comes to bagging leading roles. But, I never lose hope and I’m in no hurry. I want to slowly and steadily chart my path”.

After that she did roles in many films and says – “There’s a lot of prospect down south. Even during my initial days, I got the opportunity to work with someone like Nagarjuna and have only been getting leading roles. I feel blessed. The reason why I wasn’t rushing into taking up many films in Bollywood is because I didn’t want to get typecast in friend and sister-in-law roles. And then, Mayday worked out. So, as an actor, if I can’t experience variety, I won’t be able to satisfy my creative urge,” explains the actor, who would also be seen in two Telugu projects — a film and a web series”.
