Digangana Suryavanshi talks about the transition from television to films in this quick chat with Vedanshi Pathak
Vedanshi Pathak

There’s more to Digangana Surryavanshi than what meets the eye. She’s not merely an actor but a published writer as well. She has authored two books so far. One’s a book of lyrics called Waves: The Endless Emotions. The other is a fantasy novel called Nixie The Mermaid and The Power of Love. Both were written when she was around 16. She’s 23 now and has completed her graduation in English from Mithibai college, Mumbai. Her parents treat her like a princess. She was treated to a ritual milk bath on her 23rd birthday last year in October. Her parents showered gold and pearl ornaments on her and even gifted her silver slippers.

Digangana hails from Madhya Pradesh but was brought up in Mumbai. She started acting at quite a young age. She was just seven when she made her debut with the TV series Kya Hadsaa Kya Haqeeqat in 2002. She went on to play supporting roles in shows like Shakuntala (2009), Krisshna Arjun and Ruk Jaana Nahin (2011– 12). She landed her big break with Star Plus soap opera Ek Veer Ki Ardaas... Veera (2012–15) in the lead role. She was just 17 when she participated in the reality show Bigg Boss in 2015 and was the youngest celebrity to do so. In fact, she celebrated her 18th birthday when she was in the house. She could have made many more lucrative deals on television but then film offers started coming her way. She was part of Hindi films like FryDay (2018) and Jalebi (2018) before gravitating towards South cinema. She made her Telugu debut with Hippi (2019) and Tamil debut with Dhanusu Raasi Neyargale (2019). She’ll be seen alongside Arjun Rampal in The forthcoming Battle Of Bhima Koregaon.
