PRLog - May 23, 2014 - The success story is all the same. A small town girl, coming from a middle class family makes it big in the Tinsel town. Meet Shrenu Parikh, the girl we better know as Astha from the serial Iss Pyaar ko Kyaa Naam Du… Born in Vadodara, Shrenu only dreamt of being Miss India as a child. But never did she realize that her future had better things planned for her. Chosen as a model from her college’s fashion show, Shrenu soon realized her dream and aim of life. She started getting offers for beauty pageants and then landed up in serials such as Gulaal and now, one of television’s most loved programs, Iss Pyaar ko Kyaa Naam Du.
Shrenu comes from a Gujarati family with high values who support her on all her achievements. For her, her parents are her biggest strength who have been with her throughout her decisions for life. During her candid interview with WomenPlanet, she also revealed Aishwarya Rai Bachchan as her only idol since childhood.

Shrenu was also a part of Indian Idol Season 3 but choose to give away due to further studies. She accepted her love for singing and said she sings songs to release her stress. But, as she is not trained enough, taking singing as a career option would not be a right decision for her.
When asked about her next move in career, or whether she would take up Bollywood movies, Shrenu answered with great ease that if she is offered such golden opportunities, she wouldn’t mind taking it. But, above all, she prides herself in being a woman and only wishes to change the lives of people with her show and character. About her message to all WomenPlanet readers, Shrenu said, “As I say in my show it's an honor to be a woman! If at all through my show I changed someone's life I will feel successful and happy.”
