It’s the break of the day! And linger on to see the morning in her eyes… that’s composedly comin’ a way with bright-light sunshine. Then… likeably, like an evening Star, she shines a minuscule bliss to her petite dream-stream.
Ever since from her youngest years to the moment here… she’s always loved. Romantically, seen as the Glam Doll in Cine Dome Model-Dancer-Actress SANA KHAN uprights hallucination à la mode avant-garde et futuristic. And here she is déjà-vu as la belle fonte – and – there… she goes… in joie de vivre O′ what a Gorgeous-going….. ?
“Discovering this idyllic place, we find ourselves filled with a yearning to linger here, where time stands still and beauty overwhelms.” – anonymous

What are You lovingly called at Your home-sweet-home?
Actually nothing… my very name itself is so short – so – majorly I’ m called by my name. My mom calls me beta when she wants to get some work out of me.
Can You bring back Your childhood memories?
(You in Your early days)
Childhood was fun as I had loads of friends and I was always a very talkative and hyperactive child, my whole school teachers and students knew me because of my bubbly nature.., but at home my grandparents use to control me a lot and make me do my homework, studying, tuitions and my Islamic couching so at home I was little opposite of my school.
Your dreams and aspirations as a little girl?
Travelling is my primary hobby and one consistent love of my life so I wanted to become an Air Hostess or Custom Officer. Actually uniform jobs always excited me as a person.
Where do You draw all Your inspirations from?
To become something is a dream or a desire but to reach that goal what’s important is your surrounding, your people around you who can motivate you and help you choose the right path – and – that has always been my mother, the way she handled me my grandparents and her work with the house. I wanna become only & only like her.
Having come a long way, how much have You gained and grown as a great Actress?

What makes You so passionate about Acting?
Everything… specially the opportunity of playing different characters that you are not.., it also exposes you to different kinds of people and emotions which otherwise is not possible.

Talk do about appearance on television on Realty TV Shows –
‘Bigg Boss Season 6 2012’ & ‘Big Boss Halla Boll 2015’ & ‘Fear Factor: Khatron Ke Khiladi Darr Ka Blockbuster Returns Season 6 2015’?
‘Bigg Boss’ is India’s biggest Reality Show and everyone is hooked on to it. I was lucky that it helped me in a positive image building and I got so much of live from people who don’t even know me. It feels great… With ‘KKK’ I’m someone whose not an adventurous person but I took up that show as I wanted to shift my focus from certain situation but I never ever thought in my life that I could do all that which I have done and survived till semi-finale being the weakest Contestant.

So far… so good, You have acted in Hindi films – ‘Yeh! Hai High Society’, ‘Bombay to Goa’, ‘Dhan Dhana Dhan Goal’, ‘Halla Bol’, ‘Jai Ho’, ‘Great Grand Masti’?
(do share about Your best film act)
My Bollywood break was definitely something I never thought of, as people always told me that ‘Bigg Boss’ won’t get you anything and infact proving everyone wrong landed up a role in ‘Jai Ho’ opposite Salman Khan as a Villain, and till date I’m the only Contestant of ‘Bigg Boss’ who got a chance to work with the host himself the heartthrob of the nation.
Well I have opted out from ‘Great Grand Masti’ due to personal reasons… rest all have been my ladder to come up and get experience. And I m happy what all I did and it made me a better Actor and also camera-friendly.
