Television actor Urvashi Dholakia, who became a household name after she portrayed the role of Komolika in hit daily soap ‘Kasautii Zindagi Kay’, is a single mother to twins –Sagar and Kshitij.
The actress got married at the tender age of 16 and had her boys within a year. At 17, the actress was a single mom to her sons and has raised the boys on her own all this while. However, her family, including her sons now want her to ‘settle down’.
Urvashi, however, insists that staying independent is most important to her.
In an interview with Times of India she talks about her perception of love and relationships, Urvashi said, “Honestly, I have never had the time or inclination to think much about it. I was always busy working and ensuring that both my sons had a good education and comfortable life. But I strongly feel that you need to be yourself and comfortable in a relationship. If you have to change yourself as an individual to be in a relationship, then it’s not worth it.”
Urvashi further said, “My children and family want me to settle down but I haven’t given it a serious thought yet (laughs). My children often ask me to get married or date someone but whenever I’m faced with these topics, I always laugh it off. Kya sochu main, not that ki mera time chala gaya hai, but I can’t overthink things beyond a point. So, if it has to happen, it will happen. Another thing is that I’m a very independent woman and have lived life on my own terms. Hence, I would need someone who understands this rather than undermining my independence.”
