Barkha Singh Reminices About The Time She Essayed The Young Version Of Kareena Kapoor’s Role In Mujhse Dosti Karoge
Barkha Singh, who is a content creator, had kick-started her career when she was pretty young. Amongst the few films that she has been a part of, the most popular one was Kareena Kapoor, Hrithik Roshan and Rani Mukerji starrer Mujhse Dosti Karoge. She essayed the role of young Tina (Kareena Kapoor’s) role in the film, and has now opened up about how she bagged the role.
Singh recalled giving an audition for the role, and said that it was one of the toughest audition with 700-800 children wanting to be cast for the role. She told SpotboyE, “It was a tough process. There were about 600-700 kids who auditioned for the role of young Tina, and I want there, pretty chill after school, just in an attempt to make my mother buy me ice cream on the way. It just happened that I got it but I did give five rounds of auditions for that.”
She went on to talk about how people still call her ‘Young Kareena’ at times. “People sometimes still do remember it and especially one phrase, where we go like, ‘Tina… Pooja’. That kind of got stuck with the people, but thankfully now people recognise me for my more recent work. A lot of times people still do refer to me as young Kareena and it’s surprising that people actually remember that.”
Barkha Singh did not appear in many projects as a child artist, and upon her return, she also did not reach out to the people she previously worked with either, including Yash Raj Films. “I started from the ground level up so I didn’t have to face those challenges,” she said. She has worked on a few digital series including Engineering Girls and Please Find Attached. She also had a key role in Manoj Bajpayee’s Silence… Can You Hear It?
