Kamya Punjabi On Breaking Her Marriage News To Daughter: We Bribed Them With A Few Gifts
On February 10, Kamya Punjabi married the love of her life, Shalabh Dang. The actress has been enjoying the blissful married life ever since. Before marrying Shalabh, Kamya was married to Bunty Negi. The duo called it quits and they were granted a divorce in 2013. Kamya is currently parenting her daughter Araa from her first marriage. Before deciding to get married to Delhi-based healthcare professional boyfriend Shalabh, Kamya took her daughter in confidence. In her latest interview, she revealed, how she broke the news to her daughter.

 Speaking to TOI, Kamya said, “I did not tell her on the spot. First Shalabh started coming home, then we started talking over the phone and I told him he is mamma's friend. She started talking to him and then we started going on movies, we bribed them with a few gifts also (laughs). Slowly, the friendship happened and she began to understand. Then we started going on holidays and I began saying to her that, even I want someone to take care of me like how I take care of you.”

“My mom also started feeding her. She would tell her that if your mamma has someone to look after her I won't have to worry. So, Araa understood that yes now Shalabh uncle is there for mama. Slowly, we broke the ice. Then suddenly, one day I told her, I am getting married, what will you wear? She was very excited about the wedding and she could see I was very happy. She is 10 years old and she is very understanding,” she added. 

In the same interview, Kamya also revealed that after her breakup with boyfriend Karan Patel, she had undergone counseling after she slipped into depression. The actress said it took her 2.5 years to overcome Karan Patel and lead a normal life.  (ALSO READ: Lights, Camera, Action Post Lockdown: Kamya Punjabi’s TV Show Shakti And Pyar Ki Luka Chuppi Resume Work)
