“I’ve always worked hard despite the prejudices I’ve faced.”

Shobna Gulati refuses to be put in a box. In our special interview she gets personal, opening up to Vicki Powers about embracing her age, her love of poetry and her plans for the future. It’s a great read — you’ll see that Shobna is far more than just ‘that actress’ who played Sunita Alahan on Coronation street.
