In fact, earlier I wanted to become a choreographer like Saroj Khan or an air hostess. But the choices that came my way, I looked at it as an opportunity. My mom supported me throughout,” she said.
During the conversation, Rashami’s mother Rasila revealed that how she had to change her daughter’s name because of the fear that her relatives and the society won’t accept her acting career. As Rashami was the first one to enter this industry, it was hard for both of her.
“I was a single parent, I did not have a husband to support me. Also, in our caste, she was the first woman to enter this field. Our entire family was very educated and did not think of acting as a career. But, I supported her. I was scared of my family and society, so I changed her name. But my sister was there to support me throughout,” Rashami’s mother added. Rashami Desai On Being Raised By Single Mom.
