Palak continues to be compared with her mom, Shweta but the former says she is used to it. She has also said that since she is not joining television like her mom, the comparisons won’t be direct.
“Comparisons with mom are inevitable! In fact, I have grown up with these comparisons. I have heard comments like, ‘ Yeh aapke jitni sundar aur talented hogi kya (will she be as beautiful as Shweta)?’ Since I look more like my father, I’d also hear comments like, ‘ Arre, yeh aap par nahi gayi (Oh, she doesn’t resemble you)’. I would punch my pillow dreading that my life was ruined because I didn’t resemble my mother (laughs),” she told ETimes in an interview.
After the success of Bijlee Bijlee, Palak also featured in music video, Mangta Hai Kya, with Aditya Seal. She lives with Shweta and her half-brother Reyansh Kohli in Mumbai. She is the daughter of Shweta and her first husband Raja Chaudhary.
Sharing how Shweta helps her by appreciating her, she added, “My mom would keep telling me that I looked better. So, these comments don’t scare me anymore and I take them sportingly because I adore my mother and hold her in high regard.” Palak said she wants to explore films and make her own identity in the industry. “I feel that my mother has done everything there is to do on television, so the pressure on me will be a lot more as the comparison will be direct,” she said.
She is set to make her debut with Rosie The Saffron Chapter
