Shagufta had earlier told SpotboyE that she has been out of work for the last four years that led to the financial crisis. She is a cancer survivor and is also suffering from diabetes. She said, “Since that time these four years have shown me the worst period of my life. I had no help. Not many knew that I am going through a major financial crunch because till then I sold a lot of my assets to survive”.
