The graceful actress, Sonarika Bhadoria, popularly known as Parvati of Devon Ke Dev…Mahadev is just 18! Since childhood, she used to be a very good dancer as well as a good singer. She took active part by performing in each and every family gathering. When she was young, her family friends used to say that she is as pretty as a heroine and must try for acting when she grows up. She started thinking in the same way. She cleared her 10th standard exams and got promoted to the 11th standard when she got the opportunity to enter into the small screen industry.
Sonarika went to a party with one of her aunts, who is a fashion designer. Producer Rajan Shahi approached her and asked her whether she was interested in taking up the lead role in his serial. It was the biggest surprise for her and she readily agreed.
Unfortunately Rajan Shahi’s untitled serial never went on air and she felt cheated. But that was not the end of it. She started getting calls offering her other full time roles. Sonarika bagged the lead role in the daily soap Tum Dena Saath Mera, aired on Life OK. But it also did not run for long. Facing two failures in such a short time span, she wanted to take a really long break. She went on a family vacation and on returning from the trip, she got overwhelmed with the offer of playing the role of Goddess Parvati in the popular mythological show, Devon Ke Dev…Mahadev!
Biography and Family:
Sonarika was born on 14th July in the year 1994. She was born to a Rajput family in Mumbai, Maharashtra. After completing her schooling, she joined the Arts stream for her Bachelor’s degree. Her father is in the construction business whereas her mother is a homemaker.
Initially she aspired to become an IAS officer but then she chose acting as her career option. She hails from a very conservative family and therefore she faced many hurdles in convincing her family to get into the acting industry.
Her father wanted her to complete her studies before taking up acting. But she convinced her father by asking permission to become an actress as a gift on Father’s day. Her father blessed her and said that he was ok with it. And that’s how it all started!
Who is Sonarika Bhadoria Boyfriend?
The beauty claims to be 100% single right now. All she says on being questioned about her relationship status is that she is only 19 and she has a long way to go! It’s not that she never had a relationship in the past but it was all puppy love! She was never into a serious relationship and is not even willing to get into one as she does not want to ruin her career. Sonarika believes getting into a relationship means a lot of compromises as well as sacrifices and she does not want it to affect her career. Currently, she wants to focus on her acting career and does not want any obstruction in her path!
The 5 feet 3 inch actress donned the lead role in the serial Tum Dena Saath Mera, aired on the channel Life OK. Here she was paired opposite actor Ankit Narang (currently playing the role of Soham in Balaji Telefilm’s Pavitra Rishta). She portrayed the role of a sweet and simple girl named Abhilasha who hails from a small town.
She gets married to a hard working and ambitious guy named Manan. He sets off to metropolitan Mumbai chasing his dreams, in order to gain material success. Abhilasha accompanies him to Mumbai. And then the story deals with how the small town girl Abhilasha gets accustomed to the big city.
However, the daily soap ran only for five months as it got very low ratings. But Sonarika impressed the audience with her outstanding acting skills.
Next, she picked up one of the lead roles in the spiritual drama series Devon Ke Dev…Mahadev wherein she plays the role of Goddess Parvati. Sati is reborn as Parvati. Parvati is daughter to the king of Himalayas, Himavan and Mainavati. She is also sister to the river Goddess Ganga.
When she grows up, the memory of her previous birth Sati awakens in her and she takes to the most severe of asceticism to appease Lord Shiva or Mahadev (The Great God). Shiva (portrayed by handsome hunk Mohit Raina) gets pleased at her austerity and they get married in the presence of all the Gods and Goddesses. Parvati gives birth to the head of the army – Kartikeya.
The mythological series is basically a journey about the legends featuring the Hindu God Shiva and it is sourced from the Puranas. It has been running successfully and was first aired on 18th December in the year 2011.
Sonarika got replaced with Bengali actress Pooja Bose as she demanded a hike in her pay which was not fulfilled, as some sources reveal. She was promised a hike in pay but later she learnt that promised amount was out of budget and she got a termination mail and the replacement news came to her as a shock! Both the parties (the producers and Sonarika) called it quits! But she did not bear any grudge against the producers or the channel post the incident. She was cool with it and she is rather thankful for it instead.
The hottie is currently eyeing Bollywood and has no plans to make a comeback into the small screen industry! She has also got a new haircut with fringes which she could not for over a year or so as she essayed the role of Goddess Parvati who had to have long hair.
