While recalling her struggle in Bollywood, Minissha said that she was accused of stealing money by the owner of the paying guest house she was residing in.
“When I came (to Mumbai), I couldn’t afford anything. I was staying in a PG, at a rent of ₹5,000 per month. At that time, the PG lady accused me of stealing. ‘You have stolen money from my cupboard,’ she claimed. I said, ‘I haven’t stolen money’ so I vacated the PG in two days because it was a question about izzat (honour). I didn’t have money, I couldn’t afford anything so I rented a flat for ₹7,000 per month which was like a big room. The whole flat was like a big room. It was so small, so small. But I couldn’t afford anything more,” Minissha told radio host Siddharth Kannan.
She further added, “At that time, it was about ego and pride, you know they’d accused me of stealing, I wasn’t going stay in this house anymore and I left. Of course, the lady found the money in the cupboard after some time.”
