'Absolutely unbelievable'

Speaking to News 18, Sambhavna said, "Oh my god! I knew her. We have done Khatron Ke Khiladi together. I met her last year. We actually would keep meeting sometimes socially or at an event. But she never mentioned that she was going through any problems. It’s absolutely unbelievable, I still can’t digest it. Poonam was so young, hardly 30-32 years old. Life is just so unpredictable. I’m not in Mumbai but how I wish I was there to pay my respects. I would have reached there immediately.”

She further added how she remembers Poonam as a 'happy-go-lucky' person. “I knew her very well and she was a very positive person. I remember she had a dog. She was a very happy-go-lucky person. Everyone does things for media attention and so did she at times but she was not like that. She did not say anything about this. Just think how strong she was that she never even mentioned it. I really pray to god that wherever she is, she is happy and fine now. The suffering that comes with cancer is extremely tough. We all know that there are medical measures to deal with cancer as well but she must have been on a very difficult stage," said Sambhavna.
