Parul Chauhan came from Lucknow to Mumbai in 2005 leaving her engineering course half way. She was motivated by her brother's friend to try her hand at modelling and her first attempt in the world of acting got her the serial Sapna Babul Ka-Bidaai and rest is all history.
It is very amazing to know that how Parul Chauhan get offer to play Ragini in Sapna Babul Ka... Bidaai. Parul Chauhan dropped in her photographs at Rajan's office. He liked her pictures and called her for the auditions and finally Parul got selected to play Ragini.
A small town girl from an underprivileged background wants to make it big in the big bad world. So she moves to Mumbai to become an actress, finds absolutely no work, and then, suddenly, one day, gets the Big Break. That's Parul Chauhan's life - a life so filmi, you wonder what's she is doing on Television. But television is where she made it - in fact, Parul Chauhan has just returned form Dubai where she won the Gold Award for best debut on T.V. "This is my third award this year and I can't stop smiling," says Parul, also known as Ragini in Star Plus' Sapnaa Babul Ka - Bidaai.
"Till a year ago, I couldn't stop wondering why life was so unfair," Parul Chauhan says. "Now I can't thankful enough. Bidaai has given me everything."
And no wonder. In the space of one year, Parul Chauhan went from not having enough cash to eat for 15 days to planning to buy a second car for her father - quite a journey. "My father is a very junior employee in the government and his earning are barely enough for our day to day existence. So indulgence were a far fetched dream," says Parul Chauhan.
Mumbai's film and Television industries wre never on her wish list till a cousin motivated her to try her luch. "He was working in Mumbai and was clued in to the entertainment scene. He said I was dark but my features were good and I had expression. So I came to Mumbai." Parul Chauhan says.
But that was just the beginning. For 10 months, Parul Chauhan didn't get work. In a fair and lovely world, people didn't want to take a risk with a dark actress. "There was a time when I didn't have money to eat and I decided to go back," Parul Chauhan says. But Rajan Shahi, the director of Bidaai, called her. "And he just signed me on. I couldn't believe it. He said if my face could talk though still pictures, I could do wonders on screen. Thankfully, all these awards prove that he was right."
How similar Parul Chauhan to Ragini in real life?
Parul love wearing traditional costumes, sarees, salwar-kameezes. She is not much of a jeans lover, but but like to look cool. So in that case you may say that she is little bit similar to Ragini in real life.
