He once visited my sets and didn’t even have money to pay the cab driver and I had to take money from make-up dada and pay the driver. In fact, after we broke up, he still had access to my OTT platforms subscription and Zomato and used to make online orders using my money. Finally, I had to delete my Zomato account after I was left with no option. All I want to say is before you point a finger at someone make sure your image is clean enough.”
