Today Thaksala is engaged in her own business relating to textiles and advertising. She also designs apparel for the foreign market.
Have you given up acting?


Not really. If I get a good offer, I will certainly give it some thought, especially if it is a stage play. I am also a passionate artist who loves travelling.


What is your view about the misconceptions people have about the modelling field?


That’s so unfortunate. Just because a few tarnish the image of this profession, many people tend to paint everyone in this field with the same brush. If you are talented, determined and possess a good attitude, you can make it big in this glamour field.

I have achieved most of my targets in life through these qualities. Some day I dream of expanding my business ventures successfully and serving the needy, especially focusing on uplifting the life standards of street children. 


I am grateful to my family, my husband and all those who motivated me to reach this position.
