But when she started off, she was a meek, shy, simple girl who had walked into Balaji...and we knew her smile would win hearts. Recently, a colleague of hers, who hasn't worked with her, called her up for help, she immediately helped that person."

Ekta said that Smriti maintains relations with people who were working with her once and added, "This humility and this attachment to her roots, makes her a fantastic person. So proud of you my friend!"
