Avika Gor

I am glad about the rerun of my shows. I am showered with lots of love on social media from my fans, … feels overwhelming says Avika

Avika Gor popularly played little Anandi from Balika Vadhu, which had been super successful daily soap of India. The actress was only 9 years old when she made her debut on the show. Excited about it’s rerun due to pandemic, Gor says, “it has been my learning school as I observed all the elder actors work. From learning my dialogues to rehearsing with everyone to playing games with the crew and then making sure that I was studying in my free time, it all used to be so much fun. It was like one beautiful family and indeed a life-changing experience for me.”

Would you accept the Facebook friend request of your Mother in law?

MIL is a famous abbreviation for women folks in India. Tell us few tips of surviving an Indian MIL (Mother-in-law). If you ever get a Facebook friend request from the MIL, would you accept it.

I love the whole beauty of it! Hahaha… (laughs loudly) I will accept the Facebook request for sure! I mean, it’s just weird because we have seen dramatic shows on Indian television but it’s necessary to understand that whatever is shown is fictional and we are living in the real world. One cannot take television so seriously.

You do not just marry your husband but also his family.

Well, co-existence is what is needed… I truly believe that harmony is the key to a smooth relationship.

We are taught this ideology right from our childhood and I quite agree to it. It is the entire family bride and groom marries to and not just the individuals. Why should we expect anyone to separate from the family? I’m sure the person who marries me will be excited to marry my family as well. (*wink*)

What is it to have been famous from a very young age? Let us know the life of a Child Star.

Initially, you really enjoy all the attention that comes your way as people love you so much. At the same time, you tend to believe that the world revolves around you and it is the upbringing that keeps you sane. One has to strongly believe in having “head on the shoulder & feet on the ground” making sure you don’t get lost or stay away from the reality which is very important.

Evolve is to empower! You have been evolving with time, age and projects. If you can share secrets of fitting in XS size and stylish makeover.

The whole journey was a roller coaster ride. I believe it’s very important to keep ourselves mentally & physically healthy. After a long battle with my laziness, I finally made sure that I work out religiously and take care of my body… as it’s mine! So, yes, that happened! I will like to tell everyone that a healthy way to stay fit is being happy! Eating healthy and exercising is very important too. Today, when I look back, I feel proud that I didn’t give up. Being skinny is not what I promote, being healthy is the key to your happiness and it has beautifully worked for me.

Would you ever be ready to accept a live-in relationship? Why?

Of course! I think it’s important to know a person before you marry and if living together would help me to do that than I definitely would go for it. It is better to experience everything before you take a big step such as a marriage in your life.

How many rumours and social media comments affect you?

Rumours don’t affect me anymore. Yes, it did earlier, when people spoke about me being fat but that in a way pushed me to realize that I was being careless and lazy. Otherwise, I don’t really read or bother about rumours or comments. I really do have multiple things to do in a day to improve my life. Negativity isn’t a part of that list! I feel sorry for trollers but I wish them happiness and more productive days in life.

Did you ever get a thought to quit acting? If Yes, what next would you want to do?

I love what I do and so I never thought of quitting acting anytime soon. However, even if I quit doing so, I would end up in the same field either as a writer, producer, director, singer or dancer. In short, EVERYTHING POSSIBLY.
