Actor Ashnoor Kaur, known for her role in the show Patiala Babes, has scored 93% in the CBSE class 10 board exams. She said she was expecting a 90% score, but was pleasantly surprised at the result.
She told Bombay Times, “I was expecting 90% but when I got to know that I have scored 93%, it was like the icing on the cake. I was quite nervous but when I saw my result, I shouted at the top of my voice with excitement. My mother who was also there with me had tears in her eyes and since then everyone on the sets has been congratulating me.”
The actor said that she is aware of the balance she needs to strike between work and education. She said, “I have always been passionate about both. I know if I join acting as a full-fledged career in the future, then that will take place only after my studies.”
Asked how she managed to perform well on both stages, she said, “It was hectic to manage and remember dialogues along with my studies. I would always study in my makeup room and also wake up at 5:30 am and study before leaving for sets. My teachers had also told me that I could take extra classes from them and clear doubts if any. I had the support of my school, parents and the production team of my show for my studies.”
Taking to Instagram to share the news, Ashnoor wrote, “People have the stereotype that child actors won’t be good at studies, and I wanted to break this stereotype!! When everyone had a full month study leave in Feb, I was shooting the entire month, when everyone had 5-7 days before one exam, I had a mere 2-3 days… Shooting for 12 hours with heavy scenes, studying while travelling the car, going back home and studying till 1:30am.”
As for the future, she says that she will opt for the commerce stream, as it offers several avenues for her to take. Ashnoor has also appeared in films such as Sanju and Manmarziyaan.
