It was the first time I had more than four five people around me other than in school. Initially for me it was a break from school, from tests and exams, that’s how I looked at it. But later on my films didn’t do well and started bombing at the box offices, and it happened for almost seven years after I started acting. That’s when I realised that this was not a joke anymore. The only option I was left with was to go back to school or stick around here and succeed. I really didn’t want to go back to school. So luckily things worked for me and I survived,” she heaves a sigh of relief.
