While talking about her struggles, she gave credits to her mother, who stood by her as a rock, and never gave up on her. The feminist side of shined bright, “Ek aurat ne mujhay pala hai or usi ne mujhay banaya hai, meine kabhi apne baap ko nahe dekha, but meri maa ne mujhay sab se zada protect kiya.” She further added, “I am her reflection.”
