Sugandha further opened up about how her family took it and said, “I live in a joint family in Jalandhar, and my grandfather, who didn’t know who John, is really upset with all that. He even told my parents to get me back from the show. But my parents convinced him that there was nothing to worry about.”
In the end, Sugandha Mishra made it clear that John Abraham was thoughtful about the whole situation and even apologized to her, making sure that things were fine at home.
