Rhea praises her family
In the video, Rhea Chakraborty spoke about how her family stood by her during the tough times. She said, "I think my entire strength, resilience came from my family. My father being in the army, I think we had that army upbringing. I remember when everything was at its peak he told me, 'In the army when we are getting shot at, we don't lie down and go. We stand up and take a bullet on our shoulder. We take it, so take it. And even then if you have to go you will go. But at least you stood up and you gave yourself a last fighting chance'. So I would give it entirely to my family."
Rhea also lauds Shibani Dandekar
She also added, "If it wasn't for my mom, dad, my brother and even Nidhi my friend is here. Some of my other friends Shibani Dandekar, Anisha, few of my girlfriends stood by me. We were a handful of people and we were facing mobs the size of billions. But I think that's all you need, three or four people who trust you and love you. They are pillars of sanity. And you're good, you're golden."
