My parents say that because I don't work as much. I chill. I make soaps. I roam. I write sometimes. And I've done my masters so I'm like, 'It's okay," she said. When asked if she gave up acting because she was fed up with it, Jhanak said, "I was not actually fed up of acting. I was 15 or 16 so I was like, 'I have to chill now.' Because during childhood I had worked a lot but also my parents, they made me take breaks in between. I used to even go to school on a regular basis and I did my homework and everything, it was fun but somewhere I missed a small part of my childhood. So. my parents were also like, 'Take a break now.' So, that's somewhere I lost track when it comes to acting."
On missing out on a normal life due to acting, Jhanak said, "I was an extrovert because I had a lot of exposure. Now, I’m the opposite. I’m very silent. After a point of time, I was like, ‘Okay, too many people approach me.’ I enjoyed that also. But, sometimes I felt I needed my space. Had I been acting now, I would actually mind, because I like walking on the streets. So, that would’ve been very difficult,”,drake-basketball-injury-update
Jhanak Shukla is now an archaeologist but that's not how she had planned her life. "When I was small, I had in my mind that when I will be 24, I will be earning a lot, I'll be married and settled. I am 25 and not earning anything. But my parents are very supportive," she said. Check out more from the interview here. ,jordan-brand-basketball-game
