While the actress made a big name in the west, she recently revealed about facing racism in USA and told PinkVilla, “Of course, my struggles were real; everyone’s is. But I choose not to talk about it or be a victim of those situations. I have always learnt one thing from my dad. When you fall down, you pick yourself up and move on. So I keep thinking about the next big thing I could do, next thing I could learn, the next glass ceiling I could break.” She further said, “There was one time when America took so much from the country and I was like, ‘Get lost, I’m going back to India’, because I felt too small as a teenager. But it was also because I was insecure. So now when I went back this time, I was a lot more secure in my own feet. The country has given me respect, my family, my husband, my home and a different career that I started in my 30s.”
