Shiv Thakare stands as a prominent figure in the entertainment realm with an extensive fan base. His fame burgeoned post his appearance on Bigg Boss 16, and he continues to bask in the glory of success. Shiv’s journey has been a rollercoaster of ups and downs. Today, as we commemorate the special bond between siblings, Shiv Thakare and his sister Manisha sat down with Pinkvilla for an intimate conversation, delving into their formative years, revisiting past challenges, and openly discussing their profound connection.
Manisha Reminisces about Shiv Thakare’s Arrival:
In an exclusive chat with Pinkvilla, Shiv Thakare’s elder sister, Manisha, takes us back to the time of Shiv’s birth. Shiv also reflects on the invaluable lessons he gained from Manisha during trying times. When inquired about her sentiments surrounding Shiv’s birth, Manisha chuckles, “I was quite young (both of us laugh), about four and a half years old when he was born. I don’t recall all the details, but I do remember the commotion and excitement when my mother was at the hospital.” Shiv chimes in, “Whether I was born or simply present, there’s always been commotion and excitement (laughs).” Manisha continues, “Those memories stand out; the exact moment, however, remains elusive.”
Shiv’s Insights on Learning from His Elder Sister:
Before achieving fame, Shiv Thakare, renowned for his participation in Bigg Boss 16, was engaged in diverse pursuits like working at a paan shop, distributing newspapers, and delivering milk. When Manisha is asked about her feelings witnessing Shiv navigate those challenging times, Shiv interjects, “Allow me to clarify. She paved the way first, and I followed suit. The one who initially tended the paan shop was my sister. She was in the 9th grade, and I was in the 4th grade, so she took the lead. After her 10th grade, our father decided it was time for her to move on from the shop, and that’s when I took my turn. Even our cousin sister pitched in, distributing newspapers alongside us. Our household collectively weathered hardships, and it never truly felt like a struggle.”
Manisha adds, “It wasn’t an arduous task; we actually found joy in it. It was never obligatory, nor did it burden us. Thanks to our resilient mother, we never dwelled on the notion of enduring immense hardship or feeling despondent. Our entire family shared in those moments of enjoyment.”
On the professional front, Shiv Thakare currently graces the screen in the Rohit Shetty-led show, Khatron Ke Khiladi Season 13.
