Remember Janak Shukla, who was one of the most popular child actresses in the 90s and worked in TV shows like Karishma Ka Karishma and movies like Kal Ho Na Ho, is now engaged to her boyfriend longtime friend Swapnil Suryawanshi.
She shared her engagement photos on Instagram and wrote, “Finally made official! Roka ho Gaya. Supriya Shukla co-stars including Sriti Jha, Kanwar Dhillon, Mohit Hiranandani, Avika Gor dropped their vows under the post. For the uninitiated, Janak had worked with Shah Rukh Khan, Preity Zinta and Saif Ali Khan at Kal Ho Na Ho. She also starred in the Hollywood movie One Night With The King.
The actress went on hiatus at the age of 15, in a video for Brut India she said: “My retirement has already started. My parents say that because I work less. I write sometimes. And I did my master’s so I’m like, ‘It’s okay,’ she said.
She added: “I wasn’t really tired of performing. I was 15 or 16, so I was like, ‘I have to relax now.’ Because during my childhood I had worked a lot but also my parents, they made me take breaks in between. I even went to school regularly and did my homework and stuff, it was fun but somehow I missed out on a little part of my childhood. So. my parents also said, ‘Take a break now.’ So, that’s somewhere where I lost track when it comes to acting.
Jhanak said: “I used to be an extrovert because I had a lot of exposure. Now I’m the opposite. I’m very quiet. After a while I was like, ‘Okay, too much. people approach me. I enjoyed that too. But, sometimes, I felt like I needed my space. If I had played now, it would have bothered me, because I like to walk in the street. So it would have been very difficult.
