I had never thought about any image makeover or proving anything to anybody or to the world. I wasn't thinking that I want to show my side to the world. It was not the case. I was just done with the show and I wanted to take a break. That's it."
"But the whole game changed when I went inside the Bigg Boss 11 house. That too not when I was inside the house, it was when I came out of the show. I just wore different clothes in BB 11. When I came out I realised 'oh my outfits are being liked', people have seen me in different light, I have become this fashionista for them. That's when I made a conscious decision that I will keep this going."
