I remember once we were passing an old bridge. It was two floors above the ground. I was the one, who kept telling everyone to be careful about walking over it, and ironically one of the wooden logs broke under my foot, and I fell in the gap hanging out for my life! It was a really scary situation.
Everyone wonders what kind of a relationship we (Sunny and I) are having. It is very beautiful and cordial. Whenever it is necessary he (Sunny) is always there, along with Dharamji, especially when this accident happened. He (Sunny) was the first person to come and see me at home and he saw that the right doctor is there for the stitches that were done on my face. I was really taken aback to see him showing so much interest. That shows what kind of a relationship we are having.

Amazing Story – This is why successful Model & Actress Deepika Padukone could not complete her graduation
I haven’t gone to college. I just managed to finish my 11th and 12th (standards) also because by then I had become a successful model. And while I lived in Bengaluru, I still had to go to Mumbai and Delhi a lot of times for work. Then I tried doing my first year of degree, (but) I couldn’t do that. I tried distance education, I couldn’t do that as well. So, I am just 12th pass and my parents had a lot of issues with it back then.
