Sanjeeda Shaikh has impressed everyone with her performance in the web series, Heeramandi: The Diamond Bazaar.

Talking about the same, she said:

“There are men, and there are partners who try to demotivate you, who tell you that you can’t do anything. Or they will say you will not be able to do this. It’s better to be away from such people. There are phases in every relationship where you are happy, and then there are some when you are not, and then you take a call for your life and that’s what I did for myself, because I started loving myself and I started prioritising myself and that is very, very important.”
