On-screen, they might have a blissful married life with kids, but off-screen these actresses are women of steel. Although they had a turbulent married life, which ultimately led to divorce, leaving them with the kids but they have done the job so brilliantly that we are here boasting about their strength. But these telly stars did not break down, instead, they stood tall and raised their kids with no support from their ex.
Here are all the ladies of our telly industry who are raising a kid alone and are doing a wonderful job.
Shweta Tiwari was just 19 years old when she and Raja Choudhary got “married after just three months of knowing each other” in 1998. Soon after marriage, Shweta was expecting her daughter, Palak. While she was happy with the good news, her married life was in troubled waters. And after nine years of togetherness, Shweta finally separated legally from Raja in 2007, due to his abusive and violent behaviour. She then remarried Abhinav Kohli and has a son with him. And now after her separation with him, she is living alone and bringing up two children all by herself.
After getting divorced from Farhan Furniturewalla in 2003, Pooja Bedi took on the role of a single mother and raised her two children- daughter Aalia Ebrahim (born in 1997) and son Omar Ebrahim (born in 2000). And like every other parent she is also a strict mother:
“I’m more strict with my kids than my mom was with me. My kids get all the love in the world. But certain values are important, like respect for elders.”
Pooja Bedi’s daughter, Aalia Ebrahim keeps posting sizzling pictures of herself on her social media account. They share a beautiful bond of mother-daughter-turned friends.
Kamya married Bunty Negi and was blessed with a little angel, Aara, in 2009. In fact, she always wanted to have a baby girl and was on cloud nine when her wish was fulfilled:
“I am really feeling on top of the world as our dream of having a baby girl has come true, it’s really great to be a mother.”
But just after a few years, the couple filed for divorce in 2013, just a month before Kamya entered the reality show, Bigg Boss 7. After the divorce, the responsibility of bringing up Aara was on her shoulders. NOw the actress has remarried and will bring up her daughter with Shalabh Dang.
The famous vamp of the small screen, Urvashi Dholakia, happily raised her twin sons- Kshitij and Sagar, after getting divorced from her husband. The actress got married at the age of 16 and became a mom at 17! But after a year and a half of marriage, Urvashi parted ways with her husband and raised the boys all by herself. It must have been difficult for the actress to raise her twin sons when she was a teen herself, but Urvashi has no qualms about it. Here’s what she said:
“I’ve never mulled over the past nor do I think about the future. I’ve only seen a small part of life; some people have suffered much more than me. At least I had a very supportive family.”
In fact, for this proud mother, her sons are her “support system”. She also explained how being a single mother was a tough job. Here is what she said:
“Being a single mother was difficult. People tell me how I don’t look like a mother and how I haven’t aged. It’s amusing. Why will I age? I am 37. Many harp over the fact that I had my sons when I was 17. But what is the big deal? I take these comments in a positive way. I am proud of my journey, which has been a long one.”
Daljiet kaur known for playing Barun Sobti’s sister in Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon, was once happily married to Shaleen Bhanot for years and has a son named Jaydon (earlier named Sharav) with him. After their out-of-the-court settlement with her ex-husband, Daljiet has been taking care of her son and we must say that she is a hands-on mother whose forever love is her son. Talking about taking care of Jaydon independently, Daljiet said:
“I just think about one thing that whenever my son grows up, he should be proud of me. I sometimes end up shooting for 18 hours a day, but I make sure I give time to my son and exercise. Sometimes, I even go to gym late in the night when my son is asleep. I won’t be modest. It has been very tough and requires a lot of willpower. I have been single-handedly taking care of my son. Be it financially or emotionally, I am always there for him. For Jaydon I am his father-mother both.”
