Yaaneea Bharadwaj got her big break with the role of Sukhmani Sidana, the acclaimed web series Made in Heaven in 2019. Here's getting to know the actress with some unknown facts about her. She hails from a small town- Palampur in Himachal Pradesh and completed her schooling in Himachal and Punjab and is a graduate in Nonmedical.
How did she get her big break?
Not many people know that my character of Sukhmani in Made in Heaven was my first break. One day, while I was driving, I got an audition call from a renowned casting director Karan Mally's team for Made in Heaven. It was an impromptu audition. After that, I went there, gave the audition and the rest is history.
What are your interests?
I am a huge lover of astrophysics and it's my first love. I always try to keep myself updated about the same by reading about it. At the same time, I enjoy watching stars at night and I try to keep up with all the news and updates of NASA. Further, I admire renowned personalities like Albert Einstein, Aryabhatta, Nikola Tesla, Agastya Rishi, etc.
What workshops have you done?
I strongly believe that "Learning is the key". I have done a lot of workshops conducted by famous people like Neeraj Kabi, in order to make my craft impeccable. I prefer to read Constantin Stanislavski's book - "An Actor Prepares" and call it an actor's bible. I also believe that exploring yourself as an actor makes your craft much better as time passes by.
What inspired you to become an actor?
I fell in love with cinema as soon as my eyes fell upon some projects like Godfather, Seven, Shutter Island, etc. Thus, world cinema inspired me to take up acting as a profession.
Which is your upcoming Project? Tell something about the same.
My upcoming project is Chhorii. My character is very different from what I played in Made in Heaven. I hope that it releases soon and people shower it with the same love and affection they gave me for Made in Heaven.
