TV actress Avika Gor, who rose to fame for her stint in Balika Vadhu, says that there was time when she wanted to quit acting. She wanted to focus on directing films. The "Sasural Simar Ka" actress took a break for some time but not because she wasn't getting offers.
"There were a few (shows that I turned down) because I was not ready to come back to TV. That was the biggest reason and not because the stories were bad. I had taken a break for a reason... to focus on filmmaking studies and making films. I was also travelling for festivals. I wanted to find out whether I wanted to act or not," Avika told IANS.
"I was so involved in direction at one point of time that I said 'I don't want to act. I am a director'. Now, I think that I can do both," she added.
Avika and actor Manish Raisinghani had launched the poster of their short movie "Ankahee Baatein" at the 69th Cannes Film Festival's Short Film Corner last year. She is currently seen playing a law student in the show "Laado - Veerpur Ki Mardaani".
