While highlighting her future personal life plans, she said, "I want to settle down and not go about having affairs and then nursing heartbreaks. I have always wanted a love marriage, but God is not sending anyone my way. I don’t want to marry someone from the industry, especially an actor, as the relationship will be marred by insecurities. I have seen several failed marriages between actors."


It's not just Tina, many other television stars have also been in tumultuous relationships and have bravely spoken about it. Here are a few names.

Kasautii Zindagii Kay fame Shweta Tiwari poured her heart out in interviews. She spoke about her abusive marriage to her former husband Raja Chaudhary, that lasted for 14 years. In her statements, Shweta claimed that Raja would come home drunk and harm her physically. In her interview with a leading daily, she said, "When I got married to Raja in 1999, I was 19; I was too young to understand that he was not the right guy for me. Your husband should be able to respect you; he cannot be financially dependent on his wife. I just thought you only need to like a person to marry him, which is quite naïve. My mother opposed Raja as my choice, but I didn’t listen to her."


Even during their marriage, she reported against Raja for physical and verbal abuse to the police many times. Shweta is now married to actor Abhinav Kohli and is a proud mother of two children, Palak and Reyansh. She is currently working on a Bollywood film, Six X.

Dalljiet Kaur rose to fame for her role as Niyati in Kulvadhu. In 2016, she spoke about her relationship with her ex-husband Shaleen Bhanot, who is also an actor. Talking about the issues in her marriage, she said, "Trouble in our marriage started the next day of our wedding, when my mother-in-law stopped talking to me because she wasn’t happy with the wedding gifts. Status-wise, we are very different and they always knew about it. My father has three daughters and couldn’t afford the kind of wedding they expected."


They even won Nach Baliye's fourth season together and were loved by the audience for their chemistry. But later, Dalljiet filed an FIR against Shaleen for physically and mentally abusing her. She was strangulated and hit by Shaleen and had to be rescued by their house-help. The couple got divorced in November 2016 and Dalljiet got the custody of their son, Shaarav. Currently, she's a part of daily soaps like Qayamat Ki Raat and Silsila Badalte Rishton Ka.
