In an interview with Bollywood Bubbl, Krystle said, “I have been rejected before only on the basis that I came from TV. When I did a few film auditions, I got rejected because… I got finalised first and when everything became final, somebody or the other said, ‘Oh, but she has done a lot of TV, so let’s not take her and take someone else.’” Also Read - Huma Qureshi is a Sight to Behold in a Glamorous Thigh Slit Blue Dress

She said that she could not understand the bias against television actors, not only do they have a strong connection with the masses, they have a lot of acting experience. She further spoke about a particular incident of her getting replaced in a film, just two days before she was supposed to leave for the shoot. She said, “I have broken down. I have actually howled and cried because I thought that film was happening. I was ready to pack my bags and leave. Everything was final till two days before, I got a call saying, ‘But you are from TV, so that is why we will have to take someone else.’ Obviously, it is very heartbreaking and devastating.” Also Read - Sunny Leone Practises 'Hot Yoga For Life'
