Quoted by India Today, she said, “In today’s world, every aspect of your life is discussed publicly, and becomes an agenda for talking about your film to get more eyeballs. Obviously, I didn’t speak about this when I was promoting the film because it would have come across as me trying to speak about a personal experience that would propel the film so, it was around the year when COVID-19 struck. It was 2020. I was pregnant with my second baby at the end of 2020 and I unfortunately lost my baby five months into my pregnancy.” ALSO READ: Rani Mukerji Gets Mercilessly TROLLED For Wearing Green Baggy Co-Ord Set; Netizens Say, ‘Ye Designers Kuch Bhi Pehna Dete Hai’
