His spouse spoke about the meaning of Local Legend

Purvesh’s better half, Aarti, was captured talking about the true meaning of a Local Legend

At first, she said Local Legend’s meaning is very simple. In her words, Local Legend means who doesn’t back down and someone who is not afraid to step up to the challenges and doesn’t shy away from a little bit of struggle because a little bit of struggle is what makes us all stronger, so never forget where you came from. 

Recalling her childhood days and many more

His wife completed her schooling at Shady Side Academy. However, later on, she attended New York University

There she achieved a degree in film writing and directing. Moreover, her mom is a graduate of the University of Pittsburg Medical Center

As mentioned, the lady is a doctor who has a specialization in obstetrics and gynecology. 

Her dad also serves as a physician but sadly passed away while Aarti was attending high school. 

The artist shared that she is the daughter of two Indian immigrant physicians. 

She also mentioned her older siblings and a younger brother. None of them have followed in their parent's footsteps and chosen the medical field as a vocation. 

She further added that she, including her siblings, is all over the creative side of things. 

Other than that, it’s been stated that the actress initially had doubts about whether she should be pursuing performing. 

It was all thanks to her sister Kruti who made her believe in stepping up in this acting career. She then began auditioning for numerous roles. 

Nevertheless, she had already solely secured business gigs and minor roles at that period of time. 

As time passed, Aarti’s performing skills got better and better, and undoubtedly, her popularity gave rise to new roles and new opportunities that led her toward stardom. 

How did Mann end up acting in the popular sitcom “Big Bang” with no comedy background?

Born to two Indian Immigrant doctors, Mann wasn’t sure what to do with the college degree. 

It was her sister Kruti, who is a filmmaker, who influenced her decision to switch to acting from writing a script. 

She fell in love with acting after she did a role in her sister’s 2006 film “The Memsahib.” Soon after, she joined acting classes in Los Angeles

During an interview with The Post and Courier back in 2014, she said that her parents were very supportive of them, especially her mother, who knew she was going to be an actor as she was a ham from the beginning and would push her towards it which according to her is unconventional for Indian families to do. 

Mann had not watched the popular sitcom ”The Big Bang Theory” and also her background wasn’t even comedy. 

When asked about how she ended up landing the part of Priya, she said she was asking herself the same question. 

She admitted that playing the role of Priya wasn’t easy, but it was their executive producer, Chuck Lorre, who helped her a lot in the process. 

According to her, whenever they were rehearsing, she would try to play it in a more comedic way, and the executive producer would always ask her to play it simply. 

He would say, “Play it simply. You are beautiful when you are simple”. She also said that she was giving them what they needed for the show. 

After having shot her first episode, she and her husband went to India and stayed there for seven weeks. 

When she arrived back in Los Angeles, she got a call from her agent saying “Big Bang” wanted her back on the set giving her the time of three days. 

The character was changed completely the second time. 

She said originally she was engaged, and she was going to get married, and Leonard was her last fling. 

It was revealed to her after they shot that the executive producer wanted to leave the option for Priya to come back later in the show.
