Actor Kamya Punjabi has definitely had one of the most fascinating journeys on television but it is her personal life and opinions that continue to keep her in news and controversies more often than not. That happened yet again recently, when the actor shared a video on woman empowerment post which an online user commented, ‘Ek apni shaadi to bacha ni payi talaq ho gaya. Fir dusri shaadi... had hai.’ The actress hit back at the person saying, “So? Mujhe khush rehne ka ya jeene ka koi haq nahi hai? Talaq ho gaya toh aurat ko marr jaana chahiye? Talaq se zindagi khatam ho jaati hai aurat ki? Aap jaisi soch rakhne waalo ke khilaaf aaj harr ladki ko apni awaaz uthani padegi our utha bhi rahi hai... Mujhe kamzor naa samajna main ladki hoon lad sakti hoon.”
As we know, Punjabi married businessman Bunty Negi in 2003. They divorced in 2013. She tied the knot with Delhi-based healthcare professional Shalabh Dang last year. Talking about the trolls in an interview with ETimes TV, Punjabi said, “These trolls have been there since a long time now; it’s not something new that we are facing. These people on social media talk about my daughter, my past marriage, divorce, that I got married again... I ignore it most of the times, but sometimes you need to give it back. You have to make them realise how wrong they are to bring about some change.”
She mentioned she consciously keeps her 12-year old daughter Aara away from social media due to this. “These days kids are on social media right from the time they are born, but I consciously keep my daughter away from it. She’s 12 years old and isn’t aware of how people say nasty things. She doesn’t know much about these trolls, but she hears me talking about it sometimes. I can keep her away from it for sometime, but later in life whenever she is on this platform, I hope she fights her battles on her own. She will know how her mother has been fighting against such things for years,” she concluded.
