It was a previous commit so I didn’t want to back off because of everything that happened I wanted to stick to my word.” The actress further said, “Bigg Boss came to me before everything with my family happened.”

What is actually happening in their lives for them to reach that point to want to spread so much hate out there, so much judgement. It was very painful for me I am not going to behave cool and say no it doesn’t affect me. It did affect me. I think it affected me even more because my family was going through a lot. So it definitely saddened me but having said that there were a lot of os supporters as well. So I didn’t want to negate that. I wanted to focus on the positives. At the end of the day I dont know why it happens this way, it’s sad that an entire family is judged for something that happens within the family. A lot was meant to be proved.”
