Cheerful bundle of adorability Amrita Mukherjee!!

She captivated million hearts with her innocent, adorable screen presence and is fondly known as Pihu from Balaji Telefilms 'Bade Achhe Lagte Hain'. Yes we are talking about Amrita Mukherjee, the sweet little girl with a magnificent smile. In a candid chat with us, she gets talking about her journey, Bade Achche Lagte Hain and future plans...

Amrita came from a non filmy background, her mom is associated professor in engineering college and her dad is working as a director in a consultancy firm. Her parents never thought that Amrita will join glamour world.  Once she went to a mall with her parents, where a casting director spotted her.  He asked Amrita's parents to get her portfolio done. At that time her parents don't even have any idea what is portfolio.

Later they made portfolio of Amrita and forwarded it to a few production houses.  After that they start receiving calls for various shows. But Amrita's mom Mrinmoyee Mukherjee never took it seriously. "We had a holiday, so me and my mom went to 'Hare Rama Hare Krishna' temple. After that we went for audition for BALH. They gave us 6-7 lines. With the help of my mom I by hearted those lines and reproduced it in front of camera," Amrita told us. This was the first time she faced camera. After that the casting director said, "She is perfect for the role we are looking for a girl exactly like her." After a week Mrinmoyee received call from Balaji Telefilms, and within a couple of days she began shooting for the show in Dubai.

"Mujhe shoot karne mein bahut mazaa aata hai. I just miss shooting with BALH team. The entire cast and crew were very supportive; they take lot of care about me. They didn't make me shoot constantly," she quips. When we asked her about one thing she like and dislike about shooting, she immediately replied, "I love everything about shooting. But the thing which I like most is shooting the scenes with Kush. I really miss him. He is my best friend."  Talking about the thing she disliked, she innocently quipped, "Once I was asked to shoot till 2 am. Mujhe bahut bura laga, that was the only thing I abhorred till date."

Apart from BALH Amrita love to watch Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah, Crime Patrol and cartoon's like Chota Bheem & Mickey Mouse.  "Be it acting, dancing, drawing or eating, whatever Amrita does she does with her heart. She puts 100% effort in everything she does," shares her mom.

When we asked her about her hobbies she said, "I enjoy reading fairytale books, poems and drawing.  I also like dancing. Radha from 'Student Of The Year' & 'Choti Choti Gaiyaan Chote Chote Gwaal' are my favourite dance numbers."

Amrita is die heart fan of Salman Khan and is very keen to share screen space with Chulbul Pandey.  She has a naive reason why she likes Salman. "Woh bahut famous hai na that's why I like him," said chubby cheeked girl.

What she wish to be when she grown up? "I don't know mujhe bahut saari padaai karna hai," she affirmed. However her mom Mrinmoyee said, "We cannot decide anything about life. Right now she is very small, so we want her to concentrate on her studies. But that doesn't mean she will not act again. We want to keep acting as extracurricular activity.  We are looking for short term opportunities in acting, in which she can groom herself as an actor without effecting her childhood."

While wrapping up the interview when we asked her if she want to give any message to our readers? She whispered cutely, "Khaao Piyo Mast Raho.
