She added that she cheated as she made her son travel with her. She revealed that he was just 28 days old when she took him for the recording of Thugs of Hindostan (2018). She was quoted as saying:
"Maine uss department mein thodi cheating kar li. I made him travel with me for all my recordings and shows. He was 28-days-old when I took him for the recording of Thugs of Hindostan (2018). Ajay-Atul (composer duo) requested me to record the track as they were running a deadline. I placed Tegh in a room next to the recording room. I’d finish a few lines and check up on him."
Sunidhi further added that she got addicted to this way of managing work and her baby. She started enjoying with him, and he was just five months old when he travelled with her for her first show. Sunidhi shared:
Phir mujhe iss cheez ki latt lag gayi. Main itni selfish ho gayi ki mujhe uske sath mazaa aane laga. Mujhe laga yeh to best hai. I don’t have to worry about him being at home while I was out for work. I performed my first show when he was five months old and he travelled with me.”
In the same interview, Sunidhi shared that she had stopped taking her son along with her from this year onwards. She added that she wants him to live his own life with his friends. She shared that her team had a tough time stopping him in the wings. She stated:
"He wants to be on the stage with me (laughs). My team has a tough time stopping him in the wings. He says, 'Mumma, mujhe bhi gaana hai'. So I tell him: 'You have to earn it'."
