Mumbai: Shahid Kapoor's sister Sanah, who plays the role of Alia Bhatt's sister in Shaandaar, said that she always wanted to become an actor and trained herself accordingly.
"I knew that I wanted to become an actor since childhood and trained myself to become one. It is my dream though my parents were very strict about my education and they wanted me to earn my degrees," said Sanah.
"After finishing my education, I got a call from Mukesh Chhabra's office and I went for the auditions of Shaandaar. When I read the character, I instantly fell in love with the role. That's how it happened," added Sanah.
Sanah also said that Alia was very supportive.(Also Read: Alia Bhatt and Sanah Felt Like 'Real Life Sisters' in Shaandaar)
"Alia is a sweet girl. As a newcomer, I did not feel off track on the set. She was very supportive and our chemistry had that easiness. I was protective towards her as an elder sister, just like my character Isha should portray," Sanah said.
Regarding her character in the film, Sanah said: "My role struggles because she is obese and that makes her slightly different from others. And she starts thinking she lacks something in her life because of her weight issue. And then she gets married. So it is her journey how she overcomes the situation and develops as a person."
Sanah, daughter of actor Pankaj Kapur and Supriya Pathak, also said that she enjoyed shooting for the song Gulaabo in the film.
"It was an entertaining shoot for me. Bosco is an amazing choreographer. Though I was nervous, but it came out pretty nicely," said Sanah.
Directed by Vikas Bahl, Shaandaar is scheduled to release on October 22.
