I used to be actually upset and didn’t know the right way to specific myself. I used to be even lonely and had nobody to speak. When I got here again from my bathe that day, Julie was in me. You might name it faux content material or leisure however Julie helped me survive the sport. She is my robust alter ego.

You had been additionally accused of crossing your traces with Abhinav Shukla, if you pulled his shorts strings.
I don’t assume there’s any line with regards to love. I simply wished to have some good moments with him. Also, I didn’t cross any traces. I do know my boundaries.

Apart from the audiences’ love you additionally had Salman Khan’s assist all through. What do it’s a must to say about it?
He is a rockstar, and a legend in true self. He actually supported me rather a lot, and I don’t assume I might have managed to outlive the sport with out him.
