When asked about the same, she said, “My fist size is always compared to my father and everyone. I think I have lived up with a big fist (laughs). Jokes apart, yes right from my first film being compared to two legends, it has been part of my journey. Initially, it was overwhelming and I think over the years you toughen up. And say it is okay! It will always be there.”
