My folks were there inside and even I was inside, it was horrific…They ensured that we didn’t escape from the studio, they bolted the entryways and after that the cops came and they got us out… So when we documented the police report, they recorded a counter protest and in view of the counter FIR, my father, beautician and spot kid needed to experience such a great amount of badgering throughout the following couple of years,” she related.
