If you retaliate or don't respect them, they make sure that they spoil your name. They take it to their ego. Character assassination karne ki koshish karte hain. I have faced it.”
Revealing that she never succumbed to such pressures and knew how to hold on to her ground, Divyanka Tripathi Dahiya continued, “But I am was new then and like today, even then I was sure of myself; I never succumb to such pressures.
