In the same month, she went on her social media handles to explain that she was really depressed and not just doing this for the sake of publicity. “I am not doing all of this for publicity sake. I am not expecting financial help from Sudeep sir as well. I am only expecting my death as I am unable to battle depression. I am financially strong but depressed.
