Acting like an extra curriculum: 'Gippi' actor Riya Vij

    Riya told IANS: "I didn't really think about acting, but when the opportunity came, I grabbed it. I was into studies and want to become a dentist, but this (acting) was a great experience. It's like an extra curriculum, but I really enjoyed it."

    "I would still like to become a dentist, but yes, if an opportunity comes, I will grab it. Till the time acting doesn't affect my studies I am okay with it," she added.

    A 9th grade student, Riya gets support from her family.

    "My family is very open-minded. There were no dos and don'ts. They were as excited as me because it was a new thing. They were supportive."
