“Fortunately for me, my mother-in-law has given me the time and space. I know for a fact that we used to sit and her friends would come over. Her friends would be like, ‘Arre, woh tumhe mummy nahi bulati hai? Maa nahi bulati hai?’ And my mother-in-law would turn around very proudly and say that, ‘Woh jab maa bolegi na, dil se niklega, dimaag se nahi niklega’. And I was just like I was so heartened and I was so touched that she's giving me that time to grow into whoever I'm supposed to be.”
