She said, “I am like everyone and even though acting is my choice, I’ve my limitations and I’ve accepted them. I do have problems like many do and one is hormonal issue.
It is not easy for me to reduce weight and that irritates me too. I don’t like to be fat, but that is how my body adjusts and behaves. I do try a lot and when people look at me as if I am lazy, I get even more angry. But I don’t want that to come out in public. Hence, I smile cover it up.
