Popularly known by her on-screen characters Parvati Bhabhi or Priya Kapoor, Sakshi Tanwar is one of the finest actresses on Indian television and one of the most favourite TV bahus too.
Sakshi Tanwar belongs to Alwar, a small town in Rajasthan, where she lived in a joint family. Because of her dad's transferable job, she has often been on the move across north India.
Sakshi has one brother and one sister and she is the youngest child in her family. And that's the reason she always had a protected environment and had never stayed out of the house.
Unlike most celebrities who separate from their families after they come into mainstream acting, Sakshi prefers to stay with her parents in Mumbai most of the time.
Just like her on-screen roles, Sakshi is a true family girl in real life too. She was quoted saying in an interviews: "Family is important to me. I am dependent on them for everything - from little things to big decisions, I consult them on a day-today basis. I feel it is always better to go back to a house full of people, than to four empty walls. It's great support system."
Sakshi calls her mother her best friend, guide and guru. Her mother's voice is the biggest stress-buster for Sakshi. The actress still gets pampered by her mom with new delicacies.
No one would know that Sakshi has her mother's picture hanging on the wall across her bed and that's the first thing she looks at in the morning, and the last thing she does do before she sleeps is talk to her.
No many of her fans would know that Sakshi Tanwar wanted to become an IAS officer and now she feels surprised to see where she has eventually landed.
Surprisingly, Sakshi Tanwar feels that she is an outsider in this whole circus of Television and even after 13 years in this industry, she feels like she doesn't belong here.
Sakshi Tanwar feels that with time and professional growth, she has become more understanding, mature, and patient.
Sakshi Tanwar started her professional career as an anchor in Doordarshan? She anchored the film songs-based program Albela Sur Mela.
Sakshi has acted in a variety of TV soaps such as Ehsaas, Dastoor, Bhanwar, and X-Zone before she got her big break of playing the central role in Rajdhani.
'Dastoor' was the first ever television series for Sakshi and to play the character of Sher Bano in this TV series, she had to work on her voice.
Sakshi played the central character of Gayatri, who is a spiritually inclined woman with a strong connection to Goddess Durga in TV serial called 'Devi'.
Sakshi Tanwar played the on-screen character called Parvati Aggarwal in 'Kahaani Ghar Ghar Ki' for almost 8 years from 2000 till 2008 and the reel name almost became synonymous to her.
Some years ago, when Sakshi Tanwar took a little break from acting on TV, many rumours started doing the rounds; however the actress later rubbished all such baseless reports.
Some rumours said Sakshi had sold her flat as she didn't have money, others claimed that the actress has got married and shifted abroad, which was never true.
On marriage plans, Sakshi Tanwar says: "That is something I can never plan. I feel birth, death, marriage is destined, and these things can't be manipulated. I have surrendered my life completely. So, whenever it happens, I will accept it."
