The couple got married in 2009 and after six years of marriage and a son, Daljeet filed for a domestic violence case against her husband and in-laws and left the house with her son to live with her parents. Her recent transformation pleasantly surprised one and all. She lost 25 kgs and is looking younger than ever.
After legally filing for divorce, the actress revealed some shocking details about her broken marriage and that phase in her life. In an exclusive interview with TOI, she opened up about her marriage like never before. Take a look!
You have gone through a lot in the last couple of years. From facing domestic voilence to taking care of your son on your own and fighting divorce. Do you regret any thing?
“The only thing I feel sometimes is that I should have spoken up earlier. It would have been worth it. I know I was speaking truth, but I still took a lot of time expressing the pain. It was the most difficult phase of my life. I feel every experience good or bad teaches you something. I have learnt a lot from my bad expereinces. However, I am happy that I met some really good people during the phase. They not only helped me, but also guided me. I am thankful to them, they never let me be alone.”
Have you ever thought about reconciliation with Shaleen?
“All that is not going to happen. I am in a very peaceful space. If not happy or content. No doubt it was a tough phase. I am no more revengeful or have any angst. I am done with that phase. I don't hold any regrets, grudge or ego. If Shaleen wants to co-exist, I am fine with it. My only priority is my son and his happiness. I am doing all that it needs to be a good single mother. If Shaleen can be a good father to him and can contribute in my son's upbringing and towards his happiness, I am content. I want my son to grow-up as a happy person. For that if Shaleen wants to meet him for a minute or 10 hours I have no problem. I am ready to co-exist.”
Will you ever fall in love again?
“It's too early to even think about it. Right now I am going through so many uncertainties and trying to settle down everything in my life. I want to kick that person hard who said, 'money can't buy you happiness'. I know what life without money is. My life had become hell without money. I don't decide anything in life so whenever it (love) has to happen, it will happen.”
How do you manage to do all this even while shooting for a daily soap? How do you care of your son Jaydon?
“I just think about one thing that whenever my son grows-up, he should be proud of me. I sometimes end up shooting for 18 hours a day, but I make sure I give time to my son and exercise. Sometimes, I even go to gym late in the night when my son is asleep. I won't be modest. It has been very tough and requires a lot of will power. I have been single-handedly taking care of my son. Be it financially or emotionally, I am always there for him. For Jaydon I am his father-mother both.”
Hats off to this strong women! Daljeet, you are an inspiration for all the single mothers out there. We are loving your new avatar and would love to see you in a new role soon! God bless you and your son.
