Quoted by DNA, she said, “It was around 2009-10 and I used to stay in a rental apartment on Sinhagad Road (in Pune). At that time, only one or two movies of mine had been released. The apartment was owned by a corporator. When I reached his office to pay rent, he made a direct offer to me… There was a glass of water on the table, I picked it up and threw it on his face. I did not enter this profession to do such things, or else I would not have stayed in a rental apartment. I would have brought homes and cars and whatnot.”
She further added that the incident was a combination of a despicable mindset. The 36-year-old actress said, “It was a combination of two things. They judged me because of my profession and because my financial position was weak. It was a learning experience for me.” ALSO READ: Athang REVIEW: The Web-Series Leaves You Wanting For More With Its Top Notch Cinematography And Gripping Storyline!
