“Yeh sach hai? [Is it true]? How can someone… There’d be fan mails. We wondered to test, if it was in actual blood. I’d be shattered, if it was. Best to appreciate, and leave it at that. How can people place humans on such a pedestal, that they’ll fall from, anyway? I couldn't understand that kind of obsession for somebody."

She shared:

“I don’t know if it’s difficult…but lately when I started off, the memory was much better. I could read a whole page and remember it. Nowadays I need to take a little more time to memorize those lines. That could be the brain fog post chemo, aging or I don’t know what it is but that is happening, and this is kind of weird for me.”
