    In a no-holds-barred manner, she was revealed in an interview about her experience in the so-called glamour industry. "I was told I needed to lose weight. They said I'm short and I was told about my forehead and my teeth. One girl who was connected to Bollywood told me, 'Oh, but sweetheart you can never become an actress because you're too short."

    "I choose not to listen to that. Within two months of me being in India, I felt I don't have it. Some felt I looked old like an aunty because of my long hair," added Elli.

    Talking specifically about facing casting couch, Elli said, "I had gone for a few meetings. I met these two directors who especially shook my hand and scratched it with one of the fingers. After that one meeting, I asked my friend about it. He was shocked and said, "Oh, no did he do that? Do you know what that means?' I didn't know and he told me that he wanted to sleep with me."

    Elli, however, is still thankful to Salman Khan who guided her after her Bigg Boss stint. "I am grateful for whatever he has done for me. The way he was praising me (on the show) is like a blessing as it was coming from a superstar like him. I feel happy to be noticed. I am happy that I have someone, who I can contact. He loves to help people I am glad I am one of those who he is helping," she said.
