“Why should I,” Sakshi said when asked if she has quit TV for Bollywood. She says she is in no mood to quit TV after investing 16 years of her life in the medium. “I have given 16 years of my life to TV. I have really worked hard to be where I am, so why should I just give it up? In fact, I would love to experiment with more and more mediums. It’s not about TV, films or web – you know an artiste tries to do as many possible mediums as he or she can,” the actress said in a confident tone.

Born and brought up in Alwar, Rajasthan, Sakshi grew up with two siblings – a brother and a sister – and pursued her graduation from Lady Shri Ram College here. She earned fame for her character Parvati Agarwal of the popular Balaji telefilms TV series “Kahaani Ghar Ghar Ki” and later as Priya Ram Kapoor on “Bade Achhe Lagte Hain”.
