Veteran actress, Poonam Dhillon needs no introduction. She is an epitome of beauty and grace, who had won the title of Femina Miss India and had shot to fame overnight. With her spectacular acting skills, Poonam had etched her name in the hearts of millions of Indians. Poonam Dhillon had got married to Ashok Thakeria in 1988, and the couple is blessed with two kids, Anmol Thakeria and Paloma Thakeria. However, Poonam and Ashok had parted ways in 1997.

Poonam Dhillon was one of the finest actresses of her time, and she would often hit the headlines for her personal life. Time and again, her name was linked to one actor or the other, but she never paid heed to all those rumours. In an interview with Pinkvilla, Poonam opened up about the linkup rumours about her and revealed the truth behind it. The actress said:

"Every film you do, it’s the producer, who wants you to get linked with the hero. That’s how rumours are spread. You look good in the romantic poses in the film. They send those pictures around. It was all contrived and done for publicity. I didn’t give a thought to the rumours."

Poonam had got married to Ashok Thakeria, but their relationship didn't last forever. However, the actress has still maintained a dignified relationship with her ex-husband, Ashok. Talking about the same, Poonam revealed that they both are each other's well-wishers and always stand beside one another in difficult times. She added:

"We’re each other’s well-wishers. We regard each other with great respect. If Ashok has any issue or problem in life, I’ll definitely be there for him. I was equally grieved when he lost his mother a few years ago. I was extremely fond of her. She was such a wonderful person. I loved her a lot. Some relationships may not work in the format they’re supposed to work. But it doesn’t make the other person bad. Just to justify my decision to separate, I cannot badmouth Ashok."

Further in the interview, Poonam was asked if remarriage was a no-no for her. To which, the actress replied that she didn't meet a person, whom she had wanted to prioritise over her kids, Anmol and Paloma. She also added that even if she grew fond of some men, they never qualified as a suitable life partner for her. In her words:

"Remarriage was not a no-no nor did I give it a thought. It just didn’t happen. I didn’t come across anyone whom I wanted to give priority over my kids (Anmol and Paloma). My focus was on my children. Unless someone was going to bring great value to my family in terms of parenting or looking after, I didn’t see any reason to be distracted. I did meet people whom I grew fond of. But obviously, they weren’t stable enough or didn’t have all the qualities of a life partner."

When Poonam was asked if she misses a companion, the actress revealed that she, too, had wanted to have a person, who would stick by her no matter what the situation is. However, that didn't happen in her life. Adding that she never feels alone as she has a bunch of girlfriends to spend time with, Poonam explained:

"I have so many close friends, more so women friends, that I don’t really miss-miss a companion. Having said that, it would have been wonderful to have a partner, who’s with you through thick and thin. It’s beautiful if you find the right person. Someone who’s always there. If you get that kind of relationship, be it through a husband, companion, friend… why not? It’s something to be cherished. But somehow it just didn’t happen with me. It doesn’t mean there’s a void in my life. I have tons of girlfriends. In fact, they tell me, ‘How will you find a man if you’re stuck with girls!’"
