Aishwarya went on to reveal that after her diagnosis she couldn't take a day off from the shoot as they didn’t have a bank of episodes ready. Thus she continued shooting.

Aishwarya Sakhuja concluded by saying that Ramsay Hunt Syndrome is treatable and with the right and proper treatment, Justin Bieber, too would be able to bounce back soon.
On the work front, she was last seen playing the role of Ahana Khurana in Sargun Kaur Luthra and Abrar Qazi starrer ‘Yeh Hai Chahatein.’
