In an earlier interview Shweta said that it's difficult to survive in showbiz without a godfather. "I've been an outsider, who has grown up in the industry because people have seen my work. But, yes it is slightly difficult as you have to keep reminding people and go for auditions. I know a lot of people. I keep getting auditions once in a while. But being an outsider, it's quite tough to make a mark in the industry," she told IANS.
