I am not a person who would show-off assets like my house, cars and holidays,” he added.
On Thursday, there were reports doing the rounds that Aditya is left with just Rs 18000 in his bank account ahead of his wedding with actress Shweta Agarwal.
According to Bollywood Bubble, Aditya had said, “If the government extends the lockdown even further, people will start dying of hunger. My whole savings are depleted. I’ve literally finished my savings. All the money I had invested in Mutual Funds, I had to withdraw all of that (to survive). Because nobody had planned that I wouldn’t be working for a year and yet chilling it out. Nobody plans it like that. Unless you’re like some billionaire. So there is no choice. Like I’ve Rs 18,000 left in my account.”
