Known as Parvati of Kahaani Ghar Ghar Ki Sakshi Tanwar is one of the leading stars in Tellywood. She was born in Alwar, Rajasthan to Rajendra Singh Tanwar who is a retired CBI officer. Sakshi completed her schooling from many Kendriya Vidhyalayas and then graduated from Lady Sri Ram College in Delhi. While she was preparing for the common entrance exam of administrative services and Mass Communication, one of her friends suggested her to go for the auditions of a song based program at Doordarshan named Albela Sur Mela and was short listed. This is where her journey into Television began.
Her career graph turned stagnant as she flunked both the entrance exams. Acting was never new to her as she pioneered many thertra groups in her college and shared a fair part of her life on stages but facing the camera was altogether new to her.
She proved to be lucrative horse to bid for Balaji Telefilms as she saw the audience and their taste changing. After Kahaani Ghar Ghar Ki there was no looking back for her. She also performed in a couple of short films named Bawra Man and O Re Manwa.
