A generic reason for her slim physique is that she has been practicing dance for several years which is a great form of cardio that allows a person to do more of it without feeling tired or bored. This, in turn, helps burn more fat to produce energy.
During 2018, Hema and her on-screen partner Somendra Solanki, called it quits from the show Yeh Un Dinon Ki Baat Hai, as their love scenes were being neglected. During an interview with Somendra, he stated that their bit of the story was shot only 4-5 days out of the given 20 days.
