Bhumika Chawla Love Story: 'Tere Naam' Actress Married Her Own Teacher After Dating Him For 4-Years

Over the years, we have seen tons of South Indian actresses trying their luck in the Bollywood, but only a few had succeeded. While some had a terrible start, some had disappeared with time. But there's one actress, who hadn't done films in Bollywood just for the sake of adding numbers in her kitty. Yes! We are talking about Tere Naam and MS Dhoni: The Untold Story actress, Bhumika Chawla. The actress had impressed us with her stellar performances in these two and many other films over the years. The gorgeous beauty is from the nation's capital, New Delhi and was born and raised in a Punjabi family. She had started her journey of becoming an actress from working in Ad films and had later appeared in the popular series, Hip Hip Hurray on Zee TV. After much struggle, she had made her Bollywood debut opposite Bollywood superstar, Salman Khan in his career's most popular film to this day, Tere Naam.

The film turned out to be a blockbuster and had given Bhumika the best possible start to her journey in Bollywood. After Tere Naam, she had acted in Run, Dil Ne Jise Apna Kahaa, Silsilay, and Dil Jo Bhi Kahey. But after that, she had rejected many scripts because the roles for which she had come to the Hindi film industry, she wasn't getting them at all. So, the actress had decided to straighten her crown with pride and had gone back to the South Indian industry. The first film that she had done was Naa Autograph, and her decision of coming back to South had turned out to be a superb one as the film was a huge hit. The actress is always known for taking decisions with confidence and pride, without caring about the others. And, her successful marriage is an epitome of the same, as she had dated her teacher, Bharat Thakur for four years and had tied the marital knot with him later.

Bollywood actress, Bhumika Chawla was learning yoga from her instructor, Bharat Thakur and the two had become friends in the process. After their friendship for some time, the two had felt something and had confessed their feelings to each other. Soon after that, they had started dating each other secretly from the eyes of media. And, after four years of dating period, they had gotten married on October 21, 2007, in a Gurudwara in Nashik. After almost seven years, the couple had entered into the next phase of marital life, parenthood, when their son, Yash was born in February 2014.

Once in an interview with ParentCircle, the actress had talked about the kind of changes she had experienced after becoming a mother. Reflecting on the sleeping patterns, she had stated, "A lot of things change once you become a parent. Every day is a new lesson to learn for any mother. As your child grows, you also grow as a mother. If I have to really point it out, sleep patterns for one change considerably after you become a mother. You also learn balance things a lot better than before." (Don't Miss: Remember Kajol's Fiance From 'Pyaar To Hona Hi Tha'? Married To An Actress, He Looks Like This Now)

When Bhumika was asked to pinpoint some values that she had inherited from her mother and would like to pass on to her son, the actress had revealed, "I have always looked up to my mother on the way she keeps things together. As a parent, she was strict but imbibed in us the right values. Another quality that I immensely admire about her is that she never judges people and never ever makes fun of anyone. Her undying faith in God and steely determination, has been an inspiration for me throughout my life."

However, she had proudly accepted that she's still learning a lot of things. Bhumika had also shared an incident reflecting on the importance of her mother in her transition of becoming a mother for the first time. She had revealed, "When it comes to parenting, I continue to learn from my mom even today. During my last visit home, when my son threw a tantrum and screamed, I was about to lose my temper. But then my mom stepped in, calmed me down and told me that when it comes to children, sometimes silence and patience works way better than shouting and punishing. So, I remained silent."
