On January 16, I reached out to Sunanda asking her if she was keen on doing an interview to talk about the 'IPL scam' that she had been referring to in her tweets. Much to my surprise, Sunanda immediately agreed to do the interview. She was distraught when I spoke to her. 'I have tuberculosis in my stomach', she told me and added, 'I'm going to die very soon. But before going I'm going to expose Shashi for what he's put me through. I will take him down'," Kanwal's statement read.
