Gurdip Punjj often gives snippets of her life through her social media handle. The actress had played the role of a mother in the serial, Mughal-E-Azam. In an interview with the Bombay Times, she had stated that she had no qualms about playing the role of a mother to a grown-up actor. Talking about the same, she had revealed, “People have seen me mature as an actor, so they offer me roles keeping that in mind. Also, this is a historical show and we know that women would get married at an early age back then. It’s a strong character and I am too excited to play the part. I am a mother of two in real life and so, maternal love comes naturally to me. That makes it easier to portray my character with conviction.”
Gurdip has always believed in love marriage that is arranged by the families. In an interview with The Indian Express, Gurdip had stated whether marriage played an obstacle for her career and had revealed, “Marriage has never been an obstacle to get work for me. Television helps you grow with your characters. I have grown with my shows. Characters mature very fast on television and in cinema it is different”.
