Actress Priyanka Singh, who comes from Saharanpur in UP, is making a big name for herself in Bollywood today. Priyanka used to run around the field with a hockey stick, but her heart used to be in cinema. She saw Bollywood as a dream and went to Mumbai to make it a reality. But it is said that not everyone likes Mumbai and it is not easy to get established there. This happened with Priyanka too and she had to return to Saharanpur after a lot of struggle. But then she made her debut with her first Bollywood film 'Kashi - In Search of Ganga' released in 2018 and now she is going to be seen in 'Suswagatam Khushmadid' film with Pulkit Samrat and Isabelle Kaif in an important role.

Priyanka's late father lived in the police line of Saharanpur, and worked with the police department. Her mother too worked for the police. While studying in school and college, Priyanka acted on stage, but she did not even know that her dream of working in Bollywood films would come true one day.

Along with school and college, the running of scoring and stopping goals with a hockey stick in hand was also going on. Priyanka used to feel that one day she would make her state and country proud by becoming a hockey player. But the passion for acting in films was drawing her to Mumbai like a powerful magnet. In the midst of all the hustle and bustle of trying her hand in Bollywood, Priyanka finally moved to Mumbai. 

She has no regrets for this decision taken four years ago and says, 'I am always focused on my work. No work is easy without being focused. Today with my enthusiasm and passion, I want to achieve a position in Bollywood, a simple girl from Saharanpur. The dreams of Bollywood are brought up in the minds of many people living in small villages and cities of the country. Many of these dreams become reality and also present different examples. 

There was a time in Priyanka's life when she felt that she might not be destined to work in Bollywood films. In such a situation Priyanka kept going for auditions, became desperate and returned to Saharanpur. But one day an offer came to work in an ad film, Priyanka was in a dilemma whether to move to Mumbai again or not. But now she believes that the decision to come to Mumbai once again proved to be very good for her. 

On her return she started getting good offers for films. She says, "If I had not taken the decision to return from Saharanpur, then my dream of working in films would never have been fulfilled. I definitely have to struggle here to make my mark in Bollywood. The fruits of hard work and patience are sweet. In the same way, my hard work has also paid off. Now I want to make my place in the hearts of people by playing different and interesting characters. It was not easy to make a place.

Priyanka said that as both her parents were in the police, the atmosphere of the house was already a bit strict, "but still my parents supported me and I travelled from Saharanpur to the Mayanagari. But coming to Mumbai was not enough, there was a lot of struggle here. I had decided to leave from here after being hit again and again, but I made my mind firmer and started working hard again. I will definitely say that willpower and hard work will take you to your destination, so no matter what happens, no one should ever give up."
