The 23-year-old actress made a shocking revelation that she was battling with PCOD and weight gain in her teen days. She also revealed that she was 96 kgs and due to her condition she didn’t only put on weight, but since her hormone levels were very high, it was very difficult for her to lose that weight. “It is one of the things that I struggle with till date because the only real cure is a constant, consistent, focused and determined lifestyle change. There is no shortcut to it,” she told a leading media house.
