Shilpa said, “It happened to me when my mom saw my prelims report just before my SSC examination. I had scored some 48 percent, which was disgraceful. I was a volleyball player. I was more into extracurricular activities and I was selected for the Bombay zone as a volleyball player. But, when my mom saw my result she bawled for the first time. She said you're going to be absolutely useless, worthless, and nikammi.”
