Talking about her success, the young diva said, "I think it is a very gruelling process as we put so much hard work to reach the point where we actresses are today. And it is not just hard work but compromises on personal life and leading a very well-disciplined life to translate a certain character on screen. One of my sacrifices was living away from my family. I always fought with negativity and came out a stronger person."

She also said, "In the beginning my parents did not support that. In the sense they wanted me to finish my studies, given the unpredictable nature of the profession I had chosen. Also there was a certain mentality of a middle-class orthodox family. But later, seeing my dedication, they understood and wholeheartedly supported me. I started working at a young age and after my Class 12 exam, I could not continue my formal education."But, in the process, I missed out on a complete formal education, so I am a 12th pass."
