Tu jeet gaya na toh bohot problem ho jayegi. Usko pehla 30 mila tha, I had so many issues, I was like tujhe kaise 30 aagaya (I had told him to not win the show because it would have created problems for me. I had issues when he scored 30)."

After Isha asked Ankita who Sushant's dance partner was, the actress said, “... She was a very good dancer. One day while dancing. she jumped on him. Oh s*** godh me chadh gayi (she jumped on his lap). I was very possessive, ab mai thik ho gayi hu thora. Ab mai normal ho gayi hu (now I have becomebetter, I am normal). I used to get angry over such small things.”
