Sukhmani, you have been a writer and an actor – tell us about your journey, and which phase did you enjoy the most?*
During my college days in Delhi, I realized my love for writing and advertisement. Later, I studied the same at St. Xaviers College – XIC to follow my passion. Like people say, one thing led to another, and I shifted from advertisement writing to film writing. The switch made me witness the world of movies, and I met Kunal Kohli, Vikram Bhatt, Balaji telefilms, and Karan Johar. From there, my acting journey started because many people would suggest that I should join the field after hearing me narrate the script. I can not comment on what phase I enjoy the most because they both are my passion jobs. It would be like asking to choose between your two eyes. While having said that, I think writing is more challenging than acting. To write, one needs to get into a zone and cut out from the world. With time, I am getting more comfortable with the idea of acting in front of the camera.
