Talking about the incident that prompted her to take action against the makers, the actress, who essayed the role of Mrs. Roshan Singh Sodhi for the past 15 years, took place on March 7. She had informed the makers earlier that she wanted a half day as it was her wedding anniversary and Holi and her daughter was really excited to celebrate the day with her. However, instead of letting her leave, project head Sohail Ramani and executive producer Jatin Bajaj threatened her.
