From Thumbs Up with Kunal Kapoor to Om Shanti Om with SRK

Some girls have all the luck, it seems.

How else can you explain Yuvika Chaudhary's cameo in Shah Rukh Khan's Om Shanti Om? She was noticed in a talent hunt competition and did a few commercials before landing her debut film.

She also plays a lead role in Suhail Tatari's Summer of 2007 opposite Anupam Kher's son, Sikhander.

From a small town (Meerut) to the bright lights of Mumbai, the newcomer talks to Patcy N about her ambitious projects.

I'm from Uttar Pradesh and did my schooling from Meerut. I've done fashion designing from Delhi. I lived with my parents and younger brother. My dad is in the transport business (we have our own buses) as well as real estate. My mom is a housewife.

When I was in Meerut, people would tell me to pursue modelling or acting. But I wanted to finish my education. That's why I went to Delhi.

At first, my parents were hesitant about me entering this field of acting but when they saw my hard work and commitment, they gave me the go ahead.
