She was last seen in Khatron Ke Khiladi, where she performed all the daredevil stunts and faced her fears.

Currently, she is seen in COLORS show Bekaboo, where she plays one of the leads in the show.

TellyChakkar got in touch with the actress to ask her about her struggling days and how she manages to stay real in the fake world.

What do you think about the treatment given to the struggling actor as compared to a lead actor these days?

I have also faced the hard treatment and the differentiation that takes place during an award function or a media interaction. It was years before I debuted in my show. There were senior actors who didn’t appreciate a young kid on the show as she doesn’t know anything. I didn’t know the shooting language of the show at that time and was clueless. Some of the senior actors complained that I don’t know anything and that I should learn before coming on sets. There are many such things, but I know how bad one feels when they are treated like that.

What did you face that was that bad and you felt ill-treated?

In my debut show, I remember I was kept in a vanity van with junior artists and was made to sit with them. Later on, I realised that the treatment I was getting wasn't good at all. I'm sure many actors have faced it and I know what it feels like. If I'm working with someone new, I won’t treat them this way. I will motivate and encourage them to do better by helping them as much as I can.

Is it difficult to be your true self in this fake world of entertainment?

It’s very easy to be the real you, but at times, you can fall in trouble. So, I don’t talk much and stay away from controversy. At times, because of my introverted nature, people assume that I'm arrogant, rude and have attitude. I still remember, I did a tough scene and couldn’t give the byte. The press went on to say that I have an attitude.

Media has also been supportive. There was a time when I wasn’t the lead and the media didn’t want to take my interview. It broke my heart and I felt bad. But, there are also some interviews where media turned very supportive. Everyone has their own journey and one needs to face these bitterness to have a successful career.

Well, there is no doubt that Shivangi Joshi is one of the most loved actresses and she has come up the ladder with a lot of hard work and dedication.
