    It would be known to her fans that Urfi had run away from her home at a young age and had been surviving alone in the city for years. She ran to Delhi first after which she moved to Mumbai. Talking to ETimes, Urfi said, "When I left my home the only thing that mattered to me was leaving my home and feeling the freedom. I think I was enjoying the freedom that I had got and somehow that fear vanished. I was so excited to have finally gotten a chance to go out and do things that I want to. Until the time I did not leave my house, I wasn’t aware that girls can actually go out after 5 PM. I didn’t know I could go out for dinner, lunch and wear the clothes that I want. I was enjoying the freedom that I had finally got rather than fearing. It was when I came to Mumbai when I started worrying about things like how will I survive, I don’t have money."

    But, when she started acting, she faced many setbacks too. Rejections had been regular. Urfi added, "I am still facing rejection and I still get rejected. I’ve been replaced a lot even after I’ve reached the set of a TV show. There have been times when I have been told after the first scene that I have been replaced. I would tell them to at least let me perform, but then there is internal politics. Initially, I would blame myself for the rejections but I slowly understood that not everything is meant for me. I can’t suit the requirements of every role." She even revealed that a she was conned by a Producer who forced her to do explicit scenes by threatening to send her to jail.

    Urfi adds, "What kept me going was the necessity. I had only two options either keep struggling or suicide. Till date I’ve no plan B, this is what I know to do. This is my only plan and I’ve never thought about what else I can do. I don’t think I would have been alive if I had not become an actress."

    Well, Urfi is inspirational for sure, isn't it?
