Sakshi Agarwal

Sakshi Agarwal feels that her life is the same before and after Big Boss 3 where now she feels there is much more clarity of thought of what she should be and shouldn't be doing and a sense of responsibility for my Tamil Nadu audience.

“Fashion was something which always attached me never ever thought of a career in fashion or cinema”, relishes Sakshi. Today Sakshi says that she is in a frame of mind where she feel that she want to do something really big in life in terms of not being just known as a performer but also people should look up to her as a serious actor.

Initially, she wanted to be an IAS officer. She decided to do a course in fashion. While doing that, she got movies in Kannada and eventually got a chance to act in Tamil films as well. More than an actress, she likes to be remembered as a performer her passion for modelling was really huge.

Apart from modelling, who is Sakshi? “I love cooking, which is also my stress buster. I like to decorate my house and I think that makes me happy. Shopping is one of my favourite thing to do I'm basically a shopaholic”, says, Sakshi. She is a person who is open to new challenges and that's one thing that she loves about herself.

Talking about working with Rajinikanth, “Working with Thalaivar is a dream come true and I was on the sets of Kaala for 55 days. Irrespective of what comes on screen, the entire experience of working with him was a boon to my life. Perseverance, patience, and passion were something I saw in him and how is it for a Superstar to be down to earth was something that I saw while working with him and I think that's my biggest take away”.

Sakshi is been looking forward to her next films - Aayiram Jenmangal with GV Prakash and Teddy with Arya and  Cinderella.

She talks about the dubbing experience for the movie Action by Vishal, “I was actually shocked when I got a call from Sundar C sir's office for dubbing and I was quite taken aback. Honestly, I'm not a big fan of my own voice and I feel that there is too much bass in my voice”, says, Sakshi.

Sakshi wants people to look at her as a serious actor material more than being a heroine material and more of just a performer that's what she wanted to be known for.
