Ekavali Khanna: Actress by chance
The Bollywood actress Ekavali Khanna is one of the most recognisable and respected actors in regional and Bollywood films today though surprisingly she never intended to become an actress. Though, she comes from a family that values the arts, she stayed away from cinema till fate gave her the opportunity to showcase her artistic talent in the form of a chance conversation with Shantanu Bose, one of the directors of Satyajit Ray Film & Television Institute (SRFTI). While watching a play there, Shantanu offered her a role in a student’s film. Being in a struggle phase of her personal life, she decided to take up the offer and soon one film led to another and others. From then on, she went to play many characters and worked with many acclaimed directors on films, notably "Angrezi Mein Kehte Hain" and "What will people say". Her life is a reminder of the power of fate and seizing the chance when opportunities present themselves.
