I was very brutal and I wasn’t even shocked, I laughed. And that’s the worst reaction to give to anybody that you are laughing at the person’s face,” she recalled.
Tahira talked about how she had a very tough time to fulfill her own dreams and how she was amazed by the confidence of Ayushamnn.ayushShe said, “Perhaps in retrospect, I feel that wow, this man has the guts to say it. This is what he wants to do and probably that was my way of hiding my own aspirations.”
