    The competitive scenarios in ‘So You Think You Can Dance’ brought stress, and stress hormones degenerate your genes. I started taking prescription drugs and making excuses to my best friend to get out of doing things, pushing myself into isolation. Had I stayed a year or two longer there, I don’t think I would have been alive today. I was up for a lead role in Step Up 4 and lost it to one of my close friends. I was so devastated I couldn’t even bring myself to wish her. I realised my ego was coming in the way and it took me five hours to get over it. As soon as I sent her a congratulatory message, I got an email from the makers of ABCD. I fell into the trap of fame and fortune, I got greedy. By the time I came to India, I was mentally unwell.” [3]Mumbai Mirror

  • In an interview, Lauren mentioned that she was given the opportunity to play the lead female role alongside Varun Dhawan in the 2015 Hindi film ‘ABCD 2.’ However, she decided to opt for the supporting role of Olive, an American-Indian dancer, in the same film. She said,

    I was told by the director that I had messed up with my choice of role. I was told different stories by different people. I was sidelined completely, cut out of promotions, and even some of my portions were edited out of the film. They were the six worst months of my life, and that included my stint as a judge in the celebrity TV dance reality show, Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa.” [4]Mumbai Mirror
