'Beyhadh' actress Jennifer Winget talks about her FAILED marriage with Karan Singh Grover, her second marriage
Jennifer Winget, who was once known for her bubbly nature and girl-next-door image, has become the new diva of Television industry. The actress has won tons of appreciation for her sizzling performance as Maya in 'Beyhadh'.
But apart from her professional life, Jennifer has been in the headlines for her personal life too. The actress, who was married to Bollywood actor Karan Singh Grover in 2012, got divorced last year. While Karan had been quite outspoken about his failed marriage with Jennifer, the actress has always maintained a stoic stance on her separation.
But during her recent interview with Times Of India, Jennifer spoke her heart out on failed marriage with KSG and said that she doesn't regret her decision to marry Grover. She further asserted that it was a life changing experience for her and she wanted to time to understand it.
The 'Beyhadh' actress said, "I wanted time to understand what was going on and how to deal with it. I owed it to myself, my family and those who believed in me. People talk, but that's alright with me. It was a life-changing experience. However, I didn't feel the need to justify myself to anybody because it was my life and my choice. Neither did I feel the need to tell everybody that I am fine. One man entered my life and then left it -- that's all there is to it. It can't be the be-all and end-all of my life. Now, both of us have moved on and people should move on, too."
Jennifer also said that her 'failed' marriage hasn't made her disillusioned about the constitution of marriage. "Failed is too harsh a term to refer to something your gave your best to, and tried hard at. It has not left me disillusioned. We should never close our doors on love. Why should it be restricted to a companion? There is no lack of love in my life. In fact, I have never been this happy and loved. I am in love all the time... Talking about marriage, it is a beautiful institution and it's amazing if two people want to be together. However, the decision has to be mutual; it's a team work," Winget added.
Talking about further, the diva averred that while it was indeed a hard time going through a gamut of emotions, Jennifer doesn't hold any grudges against her ex-husband Karan Singh Grover.
"It's sad when any relationship, not just marriage, doesn't have a fruitful ending. I had lived with him for so long, so it obviously took me a while to deal with the situation. I experienced a gamut of emotions, but I was so strong that I came out of it without any trouble. Also, I had a lovely support system in my family and friends. Today, all of us are in a happy space. There is no grudge at all. We are all human beings, and no one is perfect. How will I learn if I don't make mistakes? I will tell my future children also to make as many mistakes as they can because that's how they will learn. There is no ideal man, woman or relationship. Life is full of ups and downs. I have absolutely no bad memory of the marriage even though it has ended. In fact, I am thankful to Karan for an experience that taught me so much about myself. It has made me realise my strength, who my true friends are and how awesome my family is. I would have been a different person if this marriage and divorce hadn't happened. I also got so much love from his parents. I regret nothing and feel blessed instead. I have come out as a better, stronger, more loving and kickass person because of whatever happened. Earlier, I was impulsive and would get carried away. Now, I pause and think before doing something," Jennifer was quoted saying to TOI.
On being quizzed about her second marriage, Jennifer said while she does plan to marry again, she isn't looking forward to get hitched with a personal from the same field as her. She said, "I want to marry a good person, not his profession. If the person is good, the profession doesn't matter. I hold honesty, simplicity and genuineness above everything."
Interestingly, Karan Singh Grover got hitched with Bipasha Basu soon after he got legally divorced with Jennifer. While the couple's wedding was a much lavish affair, they just celebrated their first wedding anniversary in a romantic manner.
