During a recent interaction with Bollywood Bubble, Mrunal Thakur got candid about her initial years in the entertainment industry. Talking about it, she said, “When I was starting my career, there were times I was treated in a certain way and I reached home and I was crying.”
Revealing her parent’s reaction to this, Mrunal Thakur said, “I told my parents that I don’t like this. They said, ‘Mrunal, think about 10 years down the line. People would look at you and get so inspired, that if that girl could make it, main bhi kar sakti hoon yaar (I can do it too).’”
She continued, “I am so thankful to my parents that jo cheez nahi bhi thi na (if I didn’t have something), my parents have taught me to work hard and get it. I am very thankful to them for that,” she added.
Mrunal Thakur began her acting career on the small screen before transitioning onto the silver screen. While on TV, Thakur featured in several shows including, Mujhse Kuchh Kehti…Yeh Khamoshiyaan and Kumkum Bhagya. She forayed into Bollywood debut in 2019 with the Hrithik Roshan starrer Super 30.

The film was set to release this Friday, December 31, but has been indefinitely delayed due to Omicron concern.
