She went on to say that it was “uncomfortable and really surprising” that people had such strong feelings about her body. Despite her upbeat attitude, the harsh backlash has brought her to tears.


Sandhu stated;

“I definitely had a lot of breakdowns.”

“Sometimes in the most unexpected circumstances.” I’m about to go on stage or something when this all comes to mind. It’s very sad.”
