Kabhi Kushi Kabhie Gham was one of the most popular flicks of early 2000s because of high-powered cast, but there a child star who played Pooh in the movie…do you remember her?
Well, the little kid is now all grown-up to be a popular B-Town actress.
Malvika Raaj, who played the younger Pooja in Karan Johar’s Kabhi Kushi Kabhie Gham, played the younger version of Kareena Kapoor in Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham…. Malvika Raaj, says her father was not keen that she pursue acting after the 2001 film.
Even before Karan Johar’s Kabhi Khushi…, Malvika had featured in a film titled Shikaar.
Talking about coming out of the child actor image, Malvika told IANS over phone from Mumbai: “After ‘Kabhi Khushi…”, since I was a very young and a naughty child…. My dad did not want me to pursue acting anymore as it would have distracted me from studies. Even as a child actor, I got many proposals to work, but my dad did not allow me.”
Is he okay about her choice of profession now? “He is okay with it, he just wanted me to have my degree and then pursue my acting work,” said the actress, who has even done her bit of modelling. “I built a lot of confidence while working in the fashion industry. But once you get into films, you don’t want to get back to modelling,” she said.
