Bollywood actress, Chitrangda Singh has gone through a lot in her personal life. She has been juggling work and her motherhood duties singlehandedly. She has often talked about the difficulties she has been facing while raising her son, Zorawar as a single mother, since her divorce from her ex-husband, Jyoti Randhawa. Recently, Chitrangda talked about her decision to stop working after her marraige.
For the unversed, Chitrangda Singh and golfer, Jyoti Randhawa were childhood sweethearts. Their parents were family friends, and Jyoti had first met Chitrangda when she was in eighth class. The ex-couple had tied the knot in the year 2001, and after thirteen years of togetherness, they had parted ways.
Recently, in an interview with the IANS, Chitrangda talked about not working for seven years after her marriage. She shared that at times a woman chose their marriage and family over her career. She said that it happens not because a man stops her from working, but because it is how a woman is made. She shared:
"I think it is not always the men who stop us to pursue our career post marriage, we women also at times prioritise family matters over careers. You see our mental makeup is different, emotionally post marriage and motherhood... at times our priority changes. I stopped working for almost 7 years. It's a complex emotion we have."
When Chitrangda had made her acting debut with Sudhir Mishra's film, Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi, she was a married woman. However, the actress' constant juggling between Mumbai and Delhi had taken a toll on the actress' relationship.
In a media interaction, her husband, Jyoti had confirmed that Chitrangda's work life had disturbed her husband. He had also said that he was trying his best to accept this change. The golfer had further said:
"When I played golf, she followed me. Now, when she has an opportunity to do what she likes, I should do the same.
Chitrangda and Jyoti had parted ways in the year 2013.
