In an interview with Etimes, the former Bigg Boss winner revealed about her childhood. She said, “When you grow up in a broken home as a child, I’m not saying that my parents did not do their duties for me. Individually they did their best for me and I respect my mother and father for it. They stood by me when it was needed the most.”
Now, she shares an amiable bond with them. She further added that when a child is brought up in a disturbed family, it is difficult for them. While every kid responds differently to these things some go into depression, a few become aggressive and some others become introverts.
