Asking about her first salary she says, "I use to do stage shows in my college time from which I earned my first earning before that I participated in various dance competitions winning many awards. I remember for one stage performances we use to get Rs.1500, Rs.2000, Rs.3000 and so on according to the condition and status of the event. I got Rs.1500 on my first stage performance."
When asked Devoleena that did she do with her first salary she says, "I remember when I got my first payment I kept some amount of money in front of God and rest of them spent on shopping as I am a quite shopaholic and I bought many dresses after my first income."
Further she continues, "I have a tendency to keep aside some money from my income in front of God and still I follow the same. Recently I have started visiting Tirupati once in a year where I like to offer money from my income and feels good by doing it even to Lalbaugh I worship a lot."
