Mumbai: Popular TV actor Gauri Pradhan, who plays the role of a failed actor in her upcoming show Tu Aashiqui, says in real life too, she is prepared for a downfall. She became a household name after playing Gauri Mittal in the show Kutumb and Nandini Virani in Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi. And she is now all excited about her next show Tu Aashiqui. In an interview with PTI, Gauri says, "I am totally prepared for the downside as I am not ambitious by nature, I never was and will never be.
