Didn’t get money for one shot film. At that time I was sitting outside a mall thinking what to do, from whom to ask for money, I didn’t even know where the food would come from the next day? At that time I called my friend Vaibhav Modi and told him that I am in dire need of money, give me some work. At that time he was working for a show Jor Ka Jhatka which was being hosted by Shahrukh Khan. And they needed a writer. He immediately called me the next day and also gave me a signing amount.

It is not a friendship that is forced, whatever she speaks, she speaks from the heart, it does not seem to them that she is saying this just to make the person in front happy. Apart from being a good actress, she is also a good human being.
