Hello, I am Muskaan Sahal. I am a student of BMS 2nd year at St. Xavier’s College, Kolkata. I am a creative person and I love acting. It brings me immense happiness to say that my debut in acting happened last year with DARMIYAAN!
First of all I
want to thank all of you for showering so much love on my video. It has
completed 1 entire year and everything about it still remains so fresh in my
mind. I very clearly remember when we were shooting for it in near Changu Lake
and Teesta River in Sikkim. We had so much fun.
For all of us who
were connected with Darmiyaan, it has been such a respite in the lockdown last
year. I wasn’t expecting the video to do so well and definitely wasn’t
expecting it to be appreciated so much.
After Darmiyaan, people
have started recognizing my acting abilities. I have been getting several
offers and there is a wide range of options to choose from.
Although I loved
my character of the girl next door in Darmiyaan, now I would like to do
something different. I don’t have any particular character in mind, but
something that is well written and established is what I am looking for.
A lot of people
find it difficult to balance their studies with their passion but I am lucky
that I don’t have to face this. Academically I have always been strong and I am
sure I can handle my acting assignments along with my studies. I would also like
to be an entrepreneur someday.
With the release
of Darmiyaan, along with appreciation and offers, I also experienced something
that had never happened before 2020.
I got the AWARD
FOR THE BEST EMERGING ACTRESS at Wow Excellence Awards Season 2.
Aparajita Sammaan Season 2 also honored me with the Award for the Best Emerging Actress.
Darmiyaan was my
debut into acting and to get an Award right at the onset was very encouraging
As I got down the
stage, there were so many people who came running and wanted to click a picture
with me and wanted my autograph. That was the moment I realized that people
around me look up to me now.
I want to thank my
mother for supporting me to pursue my passion.
I have an appeal
to all children and parents.
I understand what
it means to have a passion and I also understand the importance of studies. So
I want to tell all my friends who want to follow their passion to first find
all the details about what you want to do - how to go about it, does it involve
a course, what is the monetary requirement etc.
When you approach
your parents with all these details, then your parents also understand how much
you want to go ahead with your passion. At the same time, do not ignore your
studies for your passion.
I also request all
the parents to keep into consideration what your child wants to follow
I would like to
dedicate both my Awards to my mother who has been my support system.
