Anupriya Goenka was seen in Padmaavat. Such life of glam and glitz was not that easy for Anupriya to get along. She belongs to Kanpur. She talks about that before entering to the entertainment industry she was working with her father as garment entrepreneur.
Anupriya Goenka recalls her past journey and says – “My journey has been long. From helping my father in his export business, while also working in a call centre during the night…I have done it all. I wanted to help since the business wasn’t doing too well. Then I shifted to Mumbai during college days, and took up a corporate job. Later, I started dabbling in theatre after settling here with my parents. That’s how my acting journey started. When I started acting, for almost two years I wasn’t even sure if I wanted to be a professional actor. I was still trying to find my feet in the industry. I come from a business family, and showbiz is something none of us had ever come across. It took me a while to realize that this is the place I want to be, and acting is what want I do.”
She adds – “There were times when I had little money in hand. On some days, I would have just Rs 30 left for food, and there were days we would go to McDonald’s to fill water bottles. I used to travel by train… I was not even able to pay off the home loans due to lack of incoming money. But, thankfully, I had invested in enough properties, and paid off home loans by making money from them. Working hard is the only way one can survive. I was clear I had to earn with dignity and support my family, and thus God has also supported me.”
