In the times, when being a single mother was a brave decision, Komolika of Kasautii Zindagi Kay had proved that she doesn’t care about society’s opinion. Yes, Urvashi Dholakia is an epitome of a strong woman as she had taken the decision of being a single mother at a young age. She had gotten married at the age of 16 and had embraced motherhood at the age of 17. But soon after she had parted ways with her husband and had decided to raise her twin boys, Kshitij and Sagar on her own. Since then, she has been acing the role of a single mother, without compromising on her personal and professional life.
While Urvashi is happy in her life with her twins and parents, it is obvious for her family to worry about her. Urvashi is 41 and despite having a troubled married, has tried to give love a second chance. The actress was earlier dating actor, Anuj Sachdeva and everything was going fine between them. Anuj was more like a friend to Urvashi’s twins and they had made a happy family together. However, the two had parted ways and had remained cordial. Now, Urvashi’s kids and parents have expressed their wish for her to get married again.
In a conversation with ETimes, when Urvashi was asked about her views on settling down, she revealed that her kids and parents want her to get married or date someone. She shared, “My children and family want me to settle down but I haven’t given it a serious thought yet. My children often ask me to get married or date someone but whenever I’m faced with these topics, I always laugh it off. Kya sochu main, not that ki mera time chala gaya hai, but I can’t overthink things beyond a point. So, if it has to happen, it will happen. Another thing is that I’m a very independent woman and have lived life on my own terms. Hence, I would need someone who understands this rather than undermining my independence.”
Urvashi also shared her perception of love and relationship and shared that being a single mother, she has worked all her life to ensure that she provides her kids with every comfort. She said, “Honestly, I have never had the time or inclination to think much about it. I was always busy working and ensuring that both my sons had a good education and comfortable life. But I strongly feel that you need to be yourself and comfortable in a relationship. If you have to change yourself as an individual to be in a relationship, then it’s not worth it.”
Talking about Urvashi and Anuj’s breakup, in an interview with Zoom TV she was asked if they had parted ways due to some kind of pressure. The actress had said that she is not someone, who can be pressurised into doing something and had also added that their breakup was mutual. Talking about her chemistry with Anuj, Urvashi had said, “We had a chemistry which is why we were together, right? Dating is not just about chemistry. It’s a lot more involved when two people come together. It’s friendship, it’s companionship, it’s togetherness. Chemistry toh hai isiliye saathmein the. But were the rest of the boxes ticked? At that point, it didn’t, not all of them, which is why the wisest thing was to part and try to move on. But there’s no harm in coming back to work together and in co-existing. I firmly believe one needs to co-exist.”
Urvashi is an epitome of a strong woman and we would love to see her start a fresh love inning in her life, no matter the age!
