Shraddha feels fame has not changed her reserved self much and she becomes a bundle of nerves whenever she is in the public eye. She also said “I am a shy person in real life. I am not a very social person. The only people I open up to are my family and close friends. Over the years, I have become more vocal but at the core, I am a reserved girl. Many a time I think that I should change myself and become more expressive. People keep telling me to be a certain way as I am an actor but if I don’t have anything to say I can’t! I come out as a shy, nervous person and a little out of place because I need time and my space to become comfortable with someone”.
