She also went on to say how that affected her and she became very conscious about her weight after that incident. “I don’t get affected by rejection at work, but the weight thing really messed with my head,” she added.
Ayushmann, who was present on the show said that at the time of Vicky Donor, he was very skinny for which their pairing might not have worked.
