Life put me in a situation where I had to earn a living. Our father had left us and things were not great family-wise. My mum was a housewife and my brother had just completed his graduation. I had to meet the basic needs from food to shelter." she added.

I remember if I didn't have a good day on set, I would tell her, 'Mumma baizzati ho gayi set pe aaj' and she used to say 'koi baat nahi’.” The actress added: “Life is extremely uncertain and you never know. My investments kept me safe.”
