In her words, β€œOn the contrary, my husband wants me to return to acting. I took the decision myself to take a break from acting. I needed to learn the ropes properly, because film making is not a child's play. I had to go and learn the art of film making because as a person, if I do not understand the concept of something, I would rather not venture into it. Marriage is not responsible for my disappearance from the screen.”

She thanked God for helping her sustain her marriage which is nine years as she would have lost it because he career was more demanding and would have affected the home.

β€œI have been married for nine years now and I am still in it. Day by day, we encounter obstacles but we cross it and get to know each other better. My career would have been a challenge because it was an expensive one. But my husband saw how determined and focused I was and he decided to support me by giving me the money to shoot my first movie,” she told Vanguard.
