The mother of 3 revealed to the Punch that she grabbed the opportunity to get married and have kids at the peak of her career because time waits for no man.

In her own words:

“I feel that when you haven’t gone through life and you don’t have a bearing in life, that’s when you see certain decisions as unreasonable. Most of those people who make these statements have not realised what they want to do in their lives.
I have planned my life right from when i was growing up. I arranged my life the way i want to go. And that is why when i was at the peak of my career and marriage came, i grabbed it because i know age keeps growing and time waits for no man.”

The talented actress also had this to say about having her kids and getting back to shape:

“That means that i can have all my four kids and then still get back to shape and come back to what i love to do. So i am not going to say things like “I don’t want to have kids yet or i am not going to get married and i want to keep acting because the young shall grow.” You are not going to be the number one forever.”
