It's a refreshing thing to see celebrities paying emphasis to their academics as well. Usually, the Bollywood and TV celebrities are so engrossed in their hectic shooting schedule that they seldom find time for anything else. Patiala Babes actor Ashnoor Kaur, who played junior Naira in Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai scored 93% in her class 10 board examinations and her fans are delighted. Despite a tight schedule, Ashnoor made sure that she studied enough to score a 90, but her hard work took her past that mark. Due to shooting schedules, Ashnoor used to study in her makeup room and make most of the time she's left of.
Talking to Bombay Times, she said, "I was expecting 90% but when I got to know that I have scored 93%, it was like the icing on the cake. I was quite nervous but when I saw my result, I shouted at the top of my voice with excitement. My mother who was also there with me had tears in her eyes and since then everyone on the sets has been congratulating me.”

Ashnoor Kaur stressed on the balance between work and study in entertainment industry. She said, "I have always been passionate about both. I know if I join acting as a full-fledged career in the future, then that will take place only after my studies.”
Despite entering the showbiz industry at such a young age, Ashnoor is managing work and study well. She added, "It was hectic to manage and remember dialogues along with my studies. I would always study in my makeup room and also wake up at 5:30 am and study before leaving for sets. My teachers had also told me that I could take extra classes from them and clear doubts if any. I had the support of my school, parents and the production team of my show for my studies.”
Junior Naira aka Ashnoor Kaur took to her Instagram to share the news. She wrote, "People have the stereotype that child actors won’t be good at studies, and I wanted to break this stereotype!! When everyone had a full month study leave in Feb, I was shooting the entire month, when everyone had 5-7 days before one exam, I had a mere 2-3 days... Shooting for 12 hours with heavy scenes, studying while travelling the car, going back home and studying till 1:30am.”
Talking about her future goals, Ashnoor Kaur plans to opt for the commerce stream as it offers her several avenues to take. Ashnoor also appeared in films like Sanju and Manmarziyaan.
