I wanted to become an army officer: Aastha Chaudhary

Indo Asian News Service

Mumbai, Nov 11 (IANS) Before entering showbiz, television actress Aastha Chaudhary's aim was to be an army officer.

"I never wanted to do a nine-to-five job, I find it very boring. I wanted to do something different, but I was clueless. This is why I thought of joining the army. But my height is short for the army. Then I decided to give acting a shot," she told IANS.

She took the plunge after convincing her parents and decided she will forsake acting if things didn't work out for her in showbiz.

"Suddenly acting attracted me and I told my family. It took me six months to convince my parents. They were so shocked. But finally, they agreed. I said give me a few months, otherwise I will take up a job. But now they are happy," said the actress who was seen in "Aise Karo Naa Vidaa" and "Babul Ka Aangann Chootey Na".

Recently, she is seen in a cameo in Star Plus's new show "Veera".

"It's a very small cameo, it's something very different. The role is performance oriented... that's why I said yes. Veera is my daughter in the show. I give birth to her and die. There will be many twists and turns in the coming episodes. After my death, my story will be shown in flashback," she said.

This is her first cameo and she added: "Initially, when I was offered, I said no. But when I heard the story, I was like I have to do this."

"Veera" has replaced popular series "Mann Kee Awaaz Pratigya", and Aastha is confident that after the positive response that the show has got, it will do well.

Content with her presence on the small screen, she has no big screen plans at the moment and said: "I am not interested in films. If there is something really nice, I will do it but as of now I am not very keen."
