Sanjeeda added that she feels proud of whatever decision she had made as it helped her to keep her dignity alive and sanity safe. Talking about the same, Sanjeeda added:

"I won't be saying like 'oh, it's okay. People speak'. It's not okay, and our side of the story only I know, right? And I am somebody who is—again, I would give it to my family, they have given me the liberty to talk to them about what I have felt so I do not have to go out and talk about it. And I take immense pride in doing that. I think that somewhere has kept my dignity alive and my sanity safe. I am not somebody who is pro women and I am not somebody who is bashing male."
