Sharing about one bitter experience when she was called 'Iron Leg' by the makers of the film, the Mission Mangal actress said, "In South, the only bitter experience that happened to me was tagging me with the name of being an Iron leg, which was very unfortunate and sad because I had nothing to do in the scripting or filming of the film...I was there only for three songs and a few scenes and I did the film only because the producer was big, the film was big and the director was big and that was my fault that I chose to do a film for these reasons and the repercussions were brutal on me because I was tagged with the bad luck charm which I had to battle for years because I had two-three flop films back to back and I was in the film, so 'yeh panauti' hai'"
