9 Celebs who chose to be single
Like the ‘happy endings’ that happen on the big screen, our society also considers tying the knot as being ‘settled’ in life. Those who make their personal choices keeping these norms aside are often judged and criticized. Let’s read about the celebs who choose to remain single and their reasons for making a choice.
One of the versatile and talented actresses in B-town never got married. When it comes to why she chose to be single, Tabu says, “I do not think single is a bad word. There may have been a stigma attached to being single in the past, but not anymore. Your happiness comes from many things unconnected with the status of your relationship. On your own, you can deal with your aloneness, but with a wrong partner, what could follow would be worse than any kind of loneliness.”
The ‘Bhaijaan’ of Bollywood was linked with many co-stars and actresses but never tied the knot. Salaman once opened up about his choice in a statement and said,” I am not interested in getting married or having a girlfriend. I am loving my single status. In 30 years I must have been single. I am loving it. I am absolutely having a blast. You have no idea how I am feeling.”
Some people have huge personal space and they cannot deal with someone invading that space in a relationship. Akshay being one of them says,” Not really. I don’t miss it at all. I love the company of someone, but for me, there has to be a cut-off point. I can be in a beautiful, loving, and caring relationship, but it can’t be 24×7 and 30 days a month. At the end of the day, I need my time alone. That is something I will never give up and that’s how I want to live my life. It has got nothing to do with being commitment-phobic. I just can’t see how people live without that space. If I do it, it will suffocate me.”
One of the versatile yet underrated actors in the Industry, Divya Dutta keeps her audiences engaged and ensures to leave an unerasable impact on whichever character she plays. When asked about being single, she says”, I am very happy being single. I am enjoying this peaceful phase in my life where work is the focus, so is my own self and of course, my new house is the focus.”
Actor Tusshar Kapoor already broke rigid norms by choosing to become a single parent to his baby boy. Tusshar opens up about his ‘happy ending’ definition and says,” I feel like I’m taking the right step. And as of today, I feel like my day is fulfilled because I have so many things to do with my son. There’s no other option I could have opted for, and I wouldn’t have had it any other way. I will not share myself with anybody in the world right now or in the future. So all’s well that ends well.”
Actor Rahul Bose says that he was attracted to women in his life but had no plans to get married. Rahul says”, Love, togetherness, companionships? Yes. Long, beautiful relationships with laughter and truth and moments? Yes. But marriage and all that stuff was never part of my imagination. I eagerly looked for lust a lot when I was younger. But how do you look for love? The only way of getting love is to give love. You just have to give it unconditionally to anyone and anything. If it comes, it comes, if it doesn’t, it is still beautiful to love”.
‘Kaho Na Pyar Hai’ fame Ameesha Patel was linked with Faisal Patel, the son of late Congress politician Ahmed Patel. A Twitter thread of their conversations made people think that the actresses are dating or have plans to get married.“It is hilarious! Faisal and I go back a long way. We have known each other for years. I am friends with him and his sister. That message was just an internal joke between us. There is nothing more to it. I am single and I am happy being single. I am not interested in being in a relationship right now. Faisal is someone who loves to crack these jokes.”Ameesha said in an interview.
Hollywood actress Emma Watson is admired for her performances and her strong opinions. Emma shares her definition of singlehood saying,” I never believed the whole ‘I’m happy single’ spiel. I was like, ‘This is totally spiel.’ It took me a long time, but I’m very happy( being single). I call it being self-partnered.”
