After winning the Miss Chandigarh title at the age of 17, Gurleen Chopra decided to pursue a career in modeling. Later, when she expressed her desire to become an actor, her parents opposed her decision. However, after they found out that Lawrence D`Souza was going to direct Gurleen`s debut movie, they supported her decision.
