An alumnae of Chandigarh’s St. Xavier’s School, this multitalented actress has bunch of projects to look forward this year.


With ancestral roots in Pathankot district of Punjab, actress Wamiqa Gabbi was born and raised in Chandigarh, in a Punjabi joint family. Her father Govardhan Kaushal, a civil engineer-turned businessman, owns a private educational centre in Chandigarh. Wamiqa’s mother Raj Kaushal is a teacher who runs her own junior high school in Sohana, Mohali. Her youngest Brother Hardik Gabbi, an arts graduate from SD college, Chandigarh, is presently working on his first album.

 How It began

Wamiqa was only two years old when she first faced camera for shooting a music video. However, she never got to watch that video as it is not available online or anywhere for that matter. Later, in school, she got involved in theatre and performed many plays.

 Her Biggest Influence

Being a Writer himself, her father was associated with theatre and arts, and he used to take het to Tagore theatre and Kala Bhawan along with him. Her father’s faith in her, his contribution to wamiqa’s theatrical learning, and his never-ending support made her the artist she is today.

 Future Plans

Wamiqa don’t want to think about the future. According to her, she focuses on the present. Thinking about future just creates expectations, which furher leads to disappointments. Life is undpredictable and nothing really happens according to plans. Therefore, she don’t make future plans and just live in the present instead
