With the help of Vicky and my family, I managed to come out. They understood my issues and today I can say that now things don't affect me. Like earlier, things never bothered me, whether it was trolling or Kisi ko bolne se Mujhe Kabhi farak nahi pada but after Bigg Boss I was very affected mentally. Maine uss cheez se apne aap ko bahar nikala hai and I don't even want to think about it."
