Shalini Pandey is thrilled that she has got herself a new puppy! The heroine of Jayeshbhai Jordaar has brought home a new puppy, AJ. An animal lover, getting AJ home is a long awaited dream come true for Shalini.
“As far back as I can remember, I always wanted a pet. I’m extremely fond of animals. Also, we had 3 dogs at my grandparents’ house when I was a kid. So, I always wanted to have my own companion. I feel connected to animals! My pup’s name is AJ and she is three months old! It was the most amazing feeling (bringing her home),” reveals Shalini.
The Arjun Reddy star shares her reason to name her pup AJ too. Shalini, who is being managed by YRF in the industry, says, “There’s a series called AJ and the Queen and I saw that series sometime back, it’s been a while. I really love it and there is a little girl, her name is AJ. AJ as in Amber Jasmine but I just like the initials AJ, so I really wanted to keep the name AJ.“
Ask her how the pup has changed her life and the talented young actor says, “My whole life was upside down the first few weeks. It was the most amazing feeling. Even if I have sleepless nights, I don’t feel the exhaustion because of her. Cuddling with her takes all the tiredness away. My life has changed and for good. There’s an additional family member at home! It’s the most beautiful feeling. I’m just super excited every day to see what she destroys next!”
