Showbiz can be a tricky place to survive and, in fact, a trickier place to have relationships. While there are always positives and success stories of an array of relationships to look at, there has literally been a long list of failed relationships over the years between multiple actors.
When it comes to actor Aakanksha Puri, who recently started in Vighanarta Ganesha, she was most in the news for her relationship with Paras Chhabra which had an ugly public breakup while the latter was in Bigg Boss 13.
In a recent interview with ETimes TV, Puri opened up how she used the lockdown period last year to move on from her heartbreak and being open to falling in love again.
Puri said, “I am single right now. I feel like my personal life is also under lockdown as of now (smiles). For some strange reason, people assume that when I quit any TV show, I have quit doing television altogether and when I break up with someone, they think I don’t want to date anyone ever. That is definitely not the case! I am a little reserved and not very socially active. Even though I am a private person, whenever someone asks me something, I have always given a straightforward answer. So I don’t know why people make assumptions about me.”
She added, “It isn’t like I have restricted myself when it comes to finding a partner. I am ready to date. I feel with the lockdown, all the boys are also locked up somewhere (laughs). I hope I find someone like myself. I want all the qualities that I have, in my partner too. More than anything, I want someone who respects me and is honest. I want a man who can be real in a world where everyone is trying to be fake. I don’t have too many expectations, but I am clear about what I want in a guy.”
She concluded with talking about her talking about her past relationships and how she doesn't regret it. She said, “I had this misconception about ‘opposites attract’, but with experience, I have learnt that it's not true. I feel our families are right when they say that the partner should have a similar upbringing, background and ethics because that matters. Currently, I am enjoying my singlehood. On some level, I also feel like I’ve told my family and friends to find the right man for me. While I usually make sound decisions in life, when it comes to choosing a partner for myself, I don’t trust my choices anymore."
