MUMBAI: Lakshay Khurana has carved a niche for himself in the telly town.
He is currently portraying the lead in the TV show Chikoo Ki Mummy Durr Kei. However, the actor says that he had no inclination towards acting. Yes, you heard it right!
Lakshay Khurana, who was born and brought in Delhi, opened up about the same to a leading daily. He told TOI, “I was working out in a gym and a guy there offered to click my portfolio. He then gave me a few modeling contacts in Delhi. Since I had my portfolio, I thought to give it a try and sent my photographs to several agencies. I got a positive response and then I thought of moving to Mumbai for a while and trying my luck there since a lot of people advised me to do the same. After coming to Mumbai, I was lucky enough to get my first show Meri Hanikarak Biwi, after giving several auditions.”
Lakshay Khurana, a Bachelors in Business Administration, went on to bag shows like Naagin Season 4 and Humkadam.
He lost his dad a few years ago. "My father always supported me in my decisions. I wanted to be a cricketer first, so he got the best bats for me. He used to pamper me like crazy and would always invest in my dreams. Unfortunately, he passed away from a sudden cardiac arrest when I was doing my first TV show. When my first paycheque came, my dad wasn't there. It was really heartbreaking for me. Having a father makes a lot of a difference. The day he passed away I turned a man from a boy. I used to be a spoilt kid, papa ke account se paise nikaal ke and I would spend it. I had a great life. But when he passed away, I got to know about the debts he had and the pressure he was facing. And I took all that responsibility on my shoulders. A lot of things have changed for me after he passed away. I became a lot more sincere towards my work. Also, since now I belong to an industry which is quite unpredictable in terms of work, I plan to have a backup plan in place."
