In an interview with the Etimes, Priya Bathija opened up about how she gave love a chance post her divorce in 2011. She mentioned that afterwards, she didn't think of marriage for many years. However, without discussing her first marriage problems, Priya said:

“When I married Jatin, I was very young and though the marriage did not work out, I gave it my 100 per cent. I don’t want to dwell on why things didn’t work out because too much time has passed now. After my divorce in 2011, I did not think of marriage for many years. But I decided to give love another chance and settled for an arranged marriage.”

Priya Bathija reveals how her second marriage with Kawaljeet Saluja didn't work out

Talking about her second marriage, Priya mentioned that even after giving her hundred per cent, her second marriage didn't work out. She revealed that they were having compatibility issues despite trying their best. Elaborating on the same, Priya added:

“I thought everything would fall in place the second time around. Unfortunately, it did not. There were compatibility issues between us and things didn’t work out.” 

Priya mentioned how she is dealing with life currently

In the same conversation, the actress opened up about focussing on the positive aspects of her life. She revealed how she has focussed on meditation, travelling and partying with her friends and that she is living her life to its fullest even after having failed marriages. She concluded:

“I may have gone through two failed marriages, but I don’t see it as the end of the world. Life does not end if your marriage does not work out. There are so many other things to do in life. In the last two years, I worked on myself, got fitter, meditated a lot and travelled with friends. I have never been a party animal and enjoy meeting my friends occasionally. Life has been good. I am not cynical about love or companionship either. I do feel that it’s important to have a companion, but one does not stop living life to the fullest just because they are single. I am now focused on my work and wanting to take up interesting roles.”
