Sanaya Irani is among few actresses who can carry off the girl-next-door look so efficiently.
no doubt to say that Sanaya is blessed with such a face and personality, that she can carry off any look easily, Sanya has a characteristic, which is a boon in her profession.
Sanaya after playing a role of babe in Radhaa Ki Betiyaan Kuch Kar Dikhayengi, and a role of a uniformed cadet in Left Right Left, and currently she is melting hearts through the role of Parwati in Rangrasiya. Sanaya is really passionate about her work and has a good behaviour with all, Be it a spot boy on the sets, a fellow actor, or an inquisitive journalist, Sanaya knows how to handle each one, without crossing lines.
Like many of us are forced to become doctors or engineers by our parents,so that we can accomplish their unfulfilled dreams, Similary Sanaya also did something to please her mother. Nothing was planned, it just happened. she graduated from college and was planning to do an MBA. But her mom suggested that before doing that, she should take a year off and get into acting and do commercials etc. Everyone told her that she had a good face.
So she was like okay. But she was not very keen on acting. First of all she couldn't speak Hindi and was very conscious of the camera. But her mom was really insistent, so for her sake, she clicked her portfolio and one then thing led to another. she never landed up doing her MBA, she said.
Sanaya approached actor Boman Irani
Sanaya first approached actor Boman Irani, who was a photographer at that time then with a little guidance from him and with the support of her mother, she took her first steps in the industry. He was the only person sanaya's mom wanted to approach, as he was a well-known photographer at that time. Boman spoke to her and
told that if she wasn't ready to act, she shouldn't do it, because this line is complicated.
Unless you don't genuinely want to do it, you won't give it your 100 per cent. He asked sanaya to give him a call when she was ready to do it." Perhaps she was destined to be an actress as she changed her mind and complied with her mother's wishes.
For almost four years, Sanaya continued doing commercials and music videos. She recollects, that she never thought she would act on television, yet she knew she would do movies if somebody offered her anything.
Soon Sanaya got fed up of doing commercials one of the reason being no one was offering her a good film, Sanaya felt it was time to do something different. That was when she decided to venture into television. she always got many calls for shows, but she kept telling people that she is not interested in television.
Sanaya Irani was also seen in a small role in the film Fanaa. She played as one of Kajol's friends.
Sanaya explained earnestly, "Yash Raj Films called her and told me that there is this small role in the film. The first time they called, she refused it, because earlier also she had got calls for films but they were for small or character roles. she didn't wanted to do that. So she clearly told them I wasn't interested. But again somebody happened to call from their office. She told me that Aamir and Kajol were there in the film. That was the time she really wanted to do it.
