The actress stated that at the moment, she wanted to focus on her work and wants to be the best version of herself. She said, "Currently, I am open to good work and want to focus on that. I need to be the best person and feel complete so that when I do find someone, I can make that relationship perfect. I want to be surrounded by good people and be empowered in such a way that I can share my silences with someone." Ridhi also added that communication is the bloodstream of any relationship in this world and added, "Communication is important in a marriage because only good communication leads to compatibility.

The actress also admitted it quite frankly that it's not easy to live in this world without a companion, as everybody needs a partner, who supports them. But Ridhi Dogra also highlighted the importance of self-love and revealed why it's equally necessary to have a healthy bond with your own soul and singledom. She said, "Everyone wants to come home to someone. While I do miss having a companion, I feel that one should learn to enjoy this phase, too. It is important to love yourself and have a relationship with yourself first. There are so many who are trapped in lonely marriages." The actress concluded her statement by insisting about the urgent need for an inward journey in our lives. She concluded, "I feel it's important to understand that you don't need anyone to complete you; you should also not be affected by anyone who enters or exits your life. You have to be at peace with yourself, understand your flaws and appreciate the good qualities. The inward journey is important."
