On My Pinboard: Shruti Prakash

Shruti Prakash

Actress and singer Shruti Prakash is known for her portrayal of Sita in the long-running Hindi soap opera ‘Saath Nibhaana Saathiya’ on Star Plus channel. 

Shruti was also a contestant in the fifth season of Bigg Boss Kannada. She is recognised for her role in the Hindi TV series ‘Ishq Unplugged’ on
Channel V.

The actress has many interesting projects lined up.


Deepika Padukone

My dad is my inspiration. Having served in the Indian army for 23 years, he is systematic and organised in all his ventures; he is my role model.

When it comes to acting, I am a huge fan of Deepika Padukone. Her journey is like an open guide to many, and I am sure she has been through a lot before she got to where she is now. Also, her confidence and the way she carries herself make me look up to her.


Billie Eilis

Music is one of the things that keep me going in life. I can never leave my house without my earphones on. ‘Nahin Samne Tu’ from film ‘Taal’ is my all-time favourite. Billie Eilish’s ‘When the party is over’ is also a favourite.

Sonu Nigam, Shreya Ghoshal, Vijay Prakash, Ariana Grande, Rihanna are artistes I admire. What I like in all these singers is that they never lose the feel of the song, even with all the improvisations that they do.


The Secret

I’m making a conscious effort to get myself into the habit of reading. As of now, I have just read a few books by Chetan Bhagat and some other inspirational ones. I have got a lot more in stock to read. ‘The Secret’ by Rhonda Byrne is my current read.


How To Train Your Dragon

I enjoy watching films. ‘Andaz Apna Apna’, ‘Chak De’, ‘Marley and Me’, ‘How To Train Your Dragon’, ’Avengers’ are some of my all-time favourites. Films like these have inspired me to get into acting.

My TV debut was with ‘Ishq Unplugged’ on Channel V. They were casting real singers on the show. I had to sing, act and dance and that’s when I realised I enjoyed performing in front of the camera. Deepika, Ranbir Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra are some of the actors I admire. Friends, The Vampire Diaries, The Originals, 13 Reasons Why are some of the TV shows I like.


Chocolate Fudge

I am a foodie. I love exploring different cuisines. But, I resist myself from eating too much as the industry I am in demands me to be in shape. Apart from that, I love eating chaats. Also, I am not very particular about food as long as it is healthy. The pizza my mom prepares is my favourite. In sweets, I like chocolate fudge and cake. If I am upset, I just need to be left alone with food, Netflix and my dog.



I love travelling, but I do not have any favourite destination. Moreover, caught up with work, I don’t get to travel that much; I somehow manage to complete one or two trips a year, which I plan to increase. Right now, I am travelling back and forth from Mumbai to Bengaluru, on work. However, my parents come and visit me where ever I am shooting. My go-to place is always Mumbai as I get to spend some quality time with my pet dog Casper.
