In a recent interview with Bombay Times, the doting wife, Dipti Dhyani Thapar opened up about one of the most challenging phases of her life when her husband, Sooraj was battling between life and death in the ICU, due to COVID-19 complications in May 2021. Talking about how she had taken a vow to shave her hair, Dipti shared:

“I felt helpless when Soorajji was in the ICU, and the doctors told us that 60 per cent of his lungs were infected. I prayed to every God possible and visited temples. That’s when I also vowed to donate my hair to Tirupati Balaji. He recovered and is healthy now. So, I decided to fulfill the vow.”


Further in the interview, Sooraj shared his reaction when he had first come to know about his wife’s oath. He mentioned that he feels lucky to have a partner who is willing to go to such an extent for him. In his words:

“I had just come back home from Lilavati when she told me about her pledge. I was shocked and questioned her again and again if she’ll have to shave the whole head. While I was sceptical, Dipti was quite okay with it from the start. For her, getting me back on my feet was a priority. She said my life mattered more to her than her hair.”

He also complimented his wife’s bald look and said:

“Honestly, I don’t know if I will be ever fine doing this. But she sat at the temple with a smile and just chanted God’s name.

Also, I must add that she is looking prettier now.”
