Mawra Hocane is a name synonymous with talent, glamour and liveliness. The diva made her Bollywood debut at a very young age and has charmed us yet again with her acting in Sammi.
Speaking to the Images Mawra said, “I believe in finishing what I start; not being able to do that makes me feel weak. As to why I chose to go back to studying [when she already has a blossoming acting career], I have never considered studies as a means to obtain a job. For me education is all about knowledge. While I polish my career, I want to polish my intelligence as well.”
Back in 2014 she had enrolled in an LLB programme but after being offered the lead role in Bollywood flick Sanam Teri Kasam, Mawra decided to take a break from her studies. Now, however, she has planned to finish her degree.
“Before taking up law, I studied medicine for six months and then tried my hand at fashion designing for another six months. I wanted to find something that excited me. Finally, it was law that captured my interest,” said the actor.
“The last year, my study schedule revolved around my work schedule. These past couple of months, leading up till May (her first Law exam) my work schedule will revolve around my study schedule,” she added.
When asked that wouldn’t it hinder the shoot of her drama Sammi?
She explained: “For instance I am shooting a spell of Sammi next week for which I have to miss classes, which I will eventually need to make up for by studying extra. Shoots for campaigns/TVCs are planned for weekends so I don’t have to miss too many classes.”

“It’s a complicated process to manage all of this but I feel I have the ability to do 48 hours of work in 24 hours,” she said. “I don’t want to waste my life by being lazy. Just today my class got cancelled and I was so upset! I want to make the most out of it.”
“I want young girls and boys to utilise themselves to their full potential,” she added. “Do not follow anyone else’s opinion of your capabilities; find for yourself what you’re passionate about and chase it!” she said.
