In the film industry, there were several such stars who went unnoticed by giving one or two hit serials. Similar is the story of Jhanak Shukla. In the 1990s, Jhanak was a part of the famous TV show ‘Karishma Ka Karishma.’ In this long-running TV Serial, Jhanak’s work was well-received. This child star from Shah Rukh Khan and Preity Zinta’s blockbuster film ‘Kal Ho Na Ho’ is no longer in the limelight.
Jhanak Shukla, the daughter of performer Supriya Shukla, made her acting debut at the age of seven in the 2003 romantic comedy Kal Ho Naa Ho, alongside Shah Rukh Khan, Preity Zinta, Saif Ali Khan, Jaya Bachchan, and Sushma Seth. She portrayed Zinta’s smaller step-sister, whose been fighting for her grandmother’s approval (Seth).
Jhank recently released a video in which she claims that her audition for Shah Rukh Khan’s film was completely meaningless. Keep in mind that Jhank is currently living the life of an archaeologist.
Not to forget, she played the role of Jia Kapoor in the film ‘Kal Ho Na Ho’. Apart from this, Jhanak also worked with Irrfan Khan in the film ‘Deadline’. The cliché that became famous as a child artist has now grown and you may not even be able to recognize by looking at his pictures.
In the film ‘Kal Ho Na Ho,’ she portrayed Jia Kapoor. Jhanak also collaborated with Irrfan Khan in the film ‘Deadline.’ The cliché that became popular as a child artist has evolved to the point where you could not even recognise her from looking at her paintings.
Jhanak in her video said that, “My retirement is underway,’ my parents claim. She goes on to say that she used to be very outgoing, but that she is now the polar opposite and quite quiet. She isn’t dissatisfied with her acting career. She explained that “I had put in a lot of effort throughout my childhood and that now I desired to relax and relish myself.”
She also states in the video that her parents wanted her to take a break from acting for the reason that she was interested in history, so she became an archaeologist. She said that what she had wished for as a child has now completely reversed. Further added that “I used to think that after getting married at the age of 24, I would settle down,” she said, but that is no longer the case.
Before leaving it all to lead a life far from the spotlight, the star appeared in TV shows Son Pari and Hatim, as well as the 2006 mystery Deadline: Sirf 24 Ghante, featuring late Irrfan Khan and Konkona Sen Sharma.
