Kalki added that she has been used to of such behavior and understands that this is a part and parcel of being a celebrity.
“I’ve been used to doing that for the last 10 years with just being a celebrity. So I am okay. I’m okay right now,” the actress stated.
In addition to the ongoing social media scrutiny, Kalki also revealed that she shot for Zee5 series Bhram too at the time of her first trimester and it was of course hard.
“I was, in fact, in my first trimester, which is the hardest. I was puking, I had dizziness, I had nausea. Only my director, Sangeeth sir, and my makeup artists Angie knew that I was pregnant. So, thankfully she was really like my rock. Getting me the right kind of food, making sure I was getting, you know, rest in between and things like that. But it was tough,” said Kalki.
