As a child, becoming a part of the television industry was the last thing on Pooja Joshi’smind. Says Pooja, “”I never wanted to get into acting.

As a child, I had dreams of becoming a teacher and the profession really inspired me. But as I grew up, my dreams changed and next, I was fascinated by the idea of becoming an air-hostess, which seemed really exciting. But then, my height came in the way (smiles)! Eventually, as I started facing the camera, my family was very supportive and my mother, in particular, really inspired me to explore it.””

While Pooja has been a part of serials like SujataPrithviraj Chauhan andMera Sasural in the past, it’s the role of the immensely popular Varsha inYeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai that has made her a household name. Shares an excited Pooja, “”The kind of love that I have got from viewers after this serial became successful has been amazing. The fact that it has completed three years shows that the people have loved not just my character, but the content of the show too. And I can relate a lot to the character that I play because in many ways, I am like Varsha in real life too. I couldn’t have asked for more in the early stage of my career.””

She adds, “”Sometimes, when I watch a few of the daily soaps today, I can’t relate at all to the stories and characters. I like shows that teach good values and that way, I am a bit old-fashioned.””…
