Headline: Up close with Sanjana Sanghi
The Delhi-based epitome of beauty, Sanjana Sanghi, is everything you may aspire to be. She chose to pursue journalism, though destiny brought her to Bollywood.
She made her debut at the age of 14, in Imtiaz Ali’s Rockstar. In Dil Bechara, the Bollywood remake of John Green’s The Fault In Our Stars, starring the late Sushant Singh Rajput as Manny and herself as Kizie, she proves her mettle in the beautiful and heartbreaking role. Other than these memorable performances, she has been spotted in Hindi Medium, Fukrey Returns and advertisements of Myntra, Aircel, Coca-Cola, Cadbury, Dabur, Tanishq, and of course, as a Wedding Asia muse.
