She furthermore continued, “I always had money, because I had a lot of jewelry, which I sold and financed my trip to Mumbai, but more than that it was emotional distress for me. My drama with the family and my father disapproving and saying that I disown you. And my mother being heartbroken. There was a rift in the family. That caused a lot of heartbreak for me”.
