Charu on how Sushmita's heart attack
Talking about Sushmita's heart attack, Charu told ETimes, “Iske baare mein family mein kisi ko nahi pata tha because I think didi ne kisi ko bataya nahi tha. (No one in the family knew about this because I think she didn’t tell anyone about it). So when it happened, she was in Jaipur and before she could tell anyone, she herself called the doctors. When I got to know this, I called my mother-in-law and asked her about it and she told me that now she (Sushmita) is fine. No one expected it and everyone was shocked.”
She called Sushmita a fighter and said that their entire family was very proud of her. She said, “Be it any problem, she fights it out” and added, “Ziana has many of her qualities. Jitni strong mujhe wo lagti hai, mujhe Ziana bhi utni hi strong lagti hai (Ziana seems to be as strong as Sushmita).”
