“I think, one of the reasons why I could decide for myself, was because I was independent. I was making my own money,” she said in an interview with Times Now.

“Divorce is considered to be taboo but the way I have been raised is to not really care about society but just do what we feel is right. I could take such steps in my life and had strong support,” she said.
