Every millennial child can vouch to have grooved to the beats of Kaanta Laga during their childhood. While the song had become very popular, it was the Kaanta Laga girl, Shefali Jariwala, who had gained more popularity and was recognised by almost everyone. Though the actress was hardly seen after her appearance in the song, it was in 2012, when we saw her in Nach Baliye season 5.
Shefali Jariwala had married the Meet Bros fame, Harmeet Singh in 2004. However, things did not go well between them and the duo had parted ways in 2009. After going through a broken marriage, Shefali was petrified to the core to fall in love ever again. However, Shefali had found love in the Pavitra Rishta fame, Parag Tyagi and they had tied the knot in 2014.
In a recent interview with Bollywood Bubble, Shefali Jariwala revealed how she was affected after her divorce with Harmeet Singh. Talking about the same, she said, "When that happens to you, you think it's the end of the world, it is difficult, you think 'what has happened?' I was so young when I got married and I got divorced. It was very difficult for me but I had a very strong support system - my family, my friends and everybody - so I was able to deal with it."
Shefali further stated that she was so broken that she could not even think of falling in love again, let alone getting married. She told the entertainment portal, "And then, there were times when you stop believing in love. You go through that phase where you are like, 'I don't think I'll ever get into a relationship again, shaadi toh bohot door ki baat hain. But it passes."
However, the actress was able to heal herself and had fallen in love again with actor, Parag Tyagi. Though she was able to move on in life, it was people's judgements that always used to hurt her. They used to judge her for getting a divorce and marrying for the second time. They even blamed her for playing bold roles on-screen. People used to say "Isi ne kuch kiya hoga, is mein kuch hoga, yeh toh kaanta laga ladki hain, yeh bohot bold hain."
Shefali also questioned the society that why no one raises an eyebrow when a man marries for the tenth time, but a woman is judged for marrying twice. She said, "It's a problem. Why are women subjected to such judgments and men are no? Why is it okay for men to get married ten times and women to not get married twice?" In reply to people calling her wrong for playing bold characters, she said, "Come on! That is a character we play on screen. Just because you play a vamp or a villain or a bold character doesn't make you that."
For the unversed, Parag and Shefali have completed six years of marital bliss on August 12, 2020!
