Pravisht Mishra : Pursuing Physiotherapy was a Bargaining for Acting
Barrister Babu fame Pravisht Mishra, who plays the role of Anirudh in the show, was recently in Lucknow for a promotional event, where the actor interacted with his fans. And the actor shared that even though it is pandemic, he isn’t scared to travel. “Firstly, I am not scared of COVID because somewhere I am from the medical field, as in I am pursuing my Bachelor in Physiotherapy and during the pandemic, I was completing my internship. So, of course, while I take all the necessary precautions, I am not scared of it. Secondly, I have been jabbed with both the COVID vaccine shots,” shared Pravisht.

So how did acting happen for this physiotherapist, we wonder? “Parents! My father wanted me to become a doctor, so I chose physiotherapy. He was scared of the setbacks of acting as a profession. I was a rebel and wanted to get into acting. But I could only rebel to an extent and then gave up. Pursing physiotherapy was a bargain for acting. But when I started pursuing physiotherapy, it interested me a lot and now I practice it and will continue to do so. The scope of physiotherapy is increasing each day. Even on the sets of Barrister Babu people come up to me for advice related to the topic and we exercised a lot too.”
While in town, Pravisht went to old Lucknow and saw the Rumi Darwaza and Bada Imambada. “I have been to Lucknow when I was in class VI. I remember coming to Bada Imambada. We went inside the Bhool Bhulaiya and my sister got lost in it. Later, we found her near the ice cream waala outside. A big part of my family is in UP. I have been coming to different cities in the state like Agra, Lucknow, Banaras and Prayagraj at least once a year since my childhood.”
