She revealed this during an interview on “Your View”, a TVC programme.
According to her, if the lockdown had happened 5 years ago, she would have been unable to help people since she was not financially buoyant at the time.
Her words, “If this (referring to the COVID-19 lockdown) had happened five years ago, I wouldn’t have been able to give because I was not making money then. I just started making money three or four years ago.”
