Speaking about the same, Jackie shared, “Mai kaam hi kar raha, bass aur kuch mujhe dikh hi nahi raha tha. Maa ke pair daba, kaam kar aur soja. Mai sochta hi nahi tha. Kyu ki mai jab teen batti me rehta tha tab bhi log bolte the, mujhe party me bhi nahi bulate the. Aaj bhi nahi bulaate par uss waqt bhi nahi bulaate the. Unka dil hai par apun apna chalte raho. Pehle toh bulate hi nahi the, bolte the ‘aree yaar isko kya bula raha hai yaar’.” (I did not see anything else than work, used to do work, and sleep. I used to not think about it. When I used to stay in teen batti, I used to hear a lot from people. They did not even call me for parties, they don’t even call me today.)
