I feel more like a sister to her [Sheetal] even though I’m a good friend of hers.

Whenever she is travelling anywhere alone, I feel anxious about how she is doing. She is a little ‘ziddi’ (persistent) as well as ‘masoom’ (innocent) and also watches a lot of serials!

“We are inseparable.”

Romoca mentioned during the Khelo India Para Games 2023 sidelines that being Sheetal’s escort makes her very “happy.”
