Work is Worship, Love Only Comes Next
Actors love any excuse to take a break from work. When the excuse is marriage or a honeymoon, it will taken before you know it. However, that was not the case with Jhanvi Chedda. The actor, who is better known as Sugna in Colors’ hit serial Balika Vadhu decided to postpone her honeymoon so that she could keep up with her shooting commitments.
Jhanvi got married last November and took just a few days off to be with her husband and new family. She returned to work immediately and gave her honeymoon a pass. If this is real commitment, we laud her. The flip side is also that actors can sometimes just not take their career for granted, given how easily roles are changed today!
