In her first advertisement, she broke her leg when performing a stunt and was hospitalised for a few months, putting her budding career on hold.[4] That affected her singing career adversely as she could not take part in most of the Super Girl touring concerts. After a speedy recovery, she immediately returned to the recording studio.
