While talking to the press on why she decided to end her first marriage and get a divorcce, Shefali Jariwala, who is now married to actor Parag Tyagi, said: “It is very important to understand that you are not being appreciated. Not every kind of violence is physical. There is a lot of mental violence that also happens and you are very unhappy in your life.”
She added that her independence helped her take such a step in her. Shefali was well accepted and rose to fame with her performance in the 2002 track Kaanta Laga.
“I think, one of the reasons why I could make the decision for myself, was because I was independent. I was making my own money. The biggest fear in our country is of society. 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”
