I don’t see happy marriages around me: Papia SenGupta
StarPlus’ show Qayamat Ki Raat, is celebrating its rave reviews and a great opening to the show. While the show has a stellar cast, they have roped in veterans like Papia SenGupta and Apara Mehta to play important roles in the show. The show revolves around the story of two families who have been haunted by an undead tantrik bound by his curse for 25 years.
While the cast are putting in their blood and sweat for the show, television diva Papia SenGupta has also been happy about her single status. Papia mentions she is not the one to be tied down easily and enjoys her independence. She has fallen in love with a man but she has loved herself more and is not fearful of living her life with or without a man.
Ask the actress what stops her from getting married now and she replies, “I don’t see many happy marriages around me. People who are married are advising me against it. Even my friends have stopped matchmaking for me now. In our country, women have suddenly become independent and don’t want to be confined to a wife’s role. On the other hand, men continue to act like chauvinistic husbands. Many years ago, I dated a guy from another country. He was more focused on what I did with my life and who I met, rather than getting to know the real me. I am too independent-minded, but if I find a guy who can become a companion in the truest sense, I might think of getting married.”
Watch Papia SenGupta as Uma in Qayamat Ki Raat, Saturday and Sunday, at 7 PM only on StarPlus.
