After Shashank's visit to Surekha Sikri, she opened up on her illness and said - "I had a brain stroke in November last year and I fell down when I was shooting. Since then, I’m recovering from a medical situation and my condition is improving. 'Badhaai Ho' released in October and within a month I faced this due to which I got minor paralysis. I am unable to eat much and that's why I have lost a lot of weight. I have my family around to take care of me and I also have a wonderful physiotherapist who comes and helps me out with my movements". She spoke with Spotboye over phone.

She also revealed that her next project is a short film with Zoya Akhtar. "I have signed a short film which will be directed by Zoya Akhtar and it’s a very exciting project for which I will soon start shooting” -she told further.
