In an interview with Times of India, Gulki Joshi told that she had to face rejections in many auditions. Only fair girls are in demand in TV. She says that ‘I also had to struggle because of my skin color. There was a time when only fair actresses were taken in the lead role in TV shows, but by the grace of God, she gave me talent. Many times I was told that you do not match so much in looks but if you are a good performer, then we cast you. I don’t know if it was a compliment or an insult but it has happened.
