In an interview in a leading luxury fashion mag the actress says, “Our marriage is very basic and not so basic at the same time. I’ve known Jyoti since I was a child.

Also, the advantage of knowing someone so long is that we can comfortably allow each other space now. He is a sportsman, he understands ambition, knows about wanting to do something with yourself.”

On her time away from Bollywood touring with him, she comments, “It’s a tough life. Week after week, playing tournaments, sometimes for five weeks in a row. And there are mood swings. It’s hard to go out there every day, knowing you have to give your best and nothing less will do. I was there for him then. Today, he’s there for me.”
