In an interview with Pinkvilla, Nikki Tamboli opened up about working in the South Indian film industry and shared her past experiences. While most of her experiences were good, Nikki shockingly stated that there's one incident that is known to no one. When the actress was urged to share the details, Nikki said that once, she was working with a South Indian director abroad, and the latter had humiliated and tortured her in public. Recalling the same, Nikki said:

"I remember one of my films from South, and the director was too bad with me. Not in some other sense, but he was not treating me right on the set. Jo mere co dancers the na, he was appreciating them more than me. He was literally saying, ‘kahan se aayi hai yaar yeh’. I don't know. Just because I couldn't speak that language initially. He was the worst I should say. I would not name (him), but that was the worst experience."

Going further in the interview, Nikki Tamboli was asked whether she had informed anyone about the incident. Answering this, the actress had stated that she had told her parents about it after she had burst into tears while reaching home from the shoot abroad with that South Indian director. However, Nikki further added that she hadn't stopped working in the film industry despite being tortured by that director and having a disturbing experience. Nikki also added that her resilience has finally paid off after she has reached a point in her career where she is getting chances to work with good filmmakers. In her words:

"I would tell you, I have even cried after coming home, and my mom and dad are also aware of this. I was shooting abroad, and I was so tortured by that director, that I would come home and cry. But still, I didn't give up because I knew that he would regret it, and he messaged me today too. Time change hota hai na har kisika.”
