She hails from a family full of popular actors and singers, but Shraddha Kapoor has said joining films was not a cake-walk for her.


The 30-year-old star, who is the daughter of actor Shakti Kapoor and is also related to legendary singers Lata Mangeshkar and Asha Bhosle, said she struggled a lot to get her first big break in the industy, which of late has been plagued by the nepotism debate.


“I was very impatient to get into films. It was a loud voice inside me that said acting is the profession I want to join.
“A lot of people think if you are a son or daughter of an actor you don’t need to audition, but that is not the case. I have gone through a lot of struggle to join films. I can’t even count how many auditions I have given or how many times I have been replaced. It is not easy. My first two films didn’t get noticed and it was tough. But Aashiqui 2 changed things,” Shraddha said recently.


Post the success of “Aashiqui 2”, Shraddha gave back-to- back hits, and the actor said her aim was to grow with every film she does.
