Though the name Simran Natekar might not be familiar to many of us, she is indeed one of the actors who is eligible to hold a record of sorts for being part of almost all Indian movies for nearly a decade now.
We know you are confused. Remember the little girl in the anti-tobacco advertisement in which she turns out to be the reason for her father's decision to quit smoking? We are talking about the mandatory no-smoking jingle, which is still screened in theatres and in DVDs before every Indian movies.
But Simran is no more a kid now. She is a diva with over 38,000 followers on Instagram and a great fan following across social media platforms.
The 45-second ad video released in 2008 by the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare was the first advertisement to feature Simran, who is now a 16-year-old social media favourite.
Apart from the popular ad, she has also endorsed the products Yakult, Videocon, Kelloggs, Dominos, Clinic Plus and Barbie, among many others. Simaran has also appeared as sister of lead character in the teleserial Pehredaar Piya Ki on Sony TV. She was also part of the kids television show Suite Life of Karan and Kabir and Disney Channel's comedy show-Oye Jassican, apart from doing a minor role in the Bollywood movie Daawat-e-Ishq in 2014.
Of late, the photos of the Mumbai-based actress have also been doing the rounds on social media.
