Palak Sidhwani has a lot of fans. She rose to fame by playing ‘Sonu‘ on Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah.
Palak always knew she wanted to become an actress, even as a child she always wanted to act and become an actress which is why she started modeling at the early age of 15!

Meanwhile, recently Palak Sidhwani shared her father’s first reaction to the news of her being part of Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah. In a conversation with Telly Chakkar, Palak revealed that her father wasn’t aware that she has an interest in acting and hence believed that she is joking around. She narrated the incident post getting a call from the makers.
“My father turned towards me and asked me if I have bagged a job at their office as he was unaware of my passion for acting. All three of us smiled at his question and explained to him that I’ll be seen in the show as Sonu Bhide. My father was a bit shocked and deep within though that probably it is some sort of a prank or it won’t materialize. It is only when he saw me on Television sets that he came to terms that his daughter is now a part of the most popular show Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chahshmah,” she said.
