She told us: “When I was in Delhi, I was living with a friend who used to work at Pepsi. I was literally living with her. She was taking care of my expenses. So I remember going for this meeting in a coffee shop and I was really young, like 16, 17 – so I used to have this crazy hunger. And I saw chocolate cakes. But when you go for these meetings, you have to pay for yourself. I remember waiting for this guy who I was supposed to hand over my portfolio to, and I was looking at these big chocolate brownies and thinking – the day I make it, I’m going to eat a big brownie. That day hasn’t come yet. Because you don’t eat brownies when you become a star!” 

She also said her journey in general was pretty miserable. You can get all the details on the show.
