Actor Barkha Singh, who begun her journey as a child artiste in Bollywood, had to audition for the character in Mujshe Dosti Karoge among 600-700 kids.
“I do remember giving the audition for that role and it was a tough process. There were about 600-700 kids who auditioned for the role of young Tina, and I went there pretty chill after school, just in an attempt to make my mother buy me ice cream on the way. It just happened that I got it but I did give five rounds of auditions for that. A lot of times people still do refer to me as young Kareena and it’s surprising that people actually remember that. They even say that my face is still the same, although I don’t know whether to take it as a compliment,” said Barkha.
Once-upon-a-time child artiste, today Barkha is a popular travel and fashion blogger on YouTube. On top of that, she also works in various other television shows and movies.
