The 25-year-old actress is currently promoting her recently released GoodLuck Jerry. In a promotional interview with the B4U podcast Hear It Hear with Suchitra Pillai and Sudhi Sachdev, she revealed that she faced the brunt of being a nepo-kid and was made to feel worthless during her first two films.
