Rashami Desai rose to the top with a terrific performance in Uttaran a few years ago and is one of the highest-paid stars even today. From battling financial lows of not having enough to eat to dealing with the social stigma because of her parents’ divorce, from facing severe societal judgement during her divorce with Nandish Sandhu to going through a tough phase of depression but not being able to share it with her people, Rashami never gave up and her journey has been inspiring. She opened up on the judgements she faced for seeking divorce back then and how the entire process in itself was difficult for her.

“Honestly, when I was in that process, the entire process was stressful. I couldn’t deal with it. Hence, I wasn’t being myself and was trying to be someone who I was not,” Rashami Desai recounted and added that people would not believe her then. “When I was standing in front of anyone, I would make sure the other person did not realize what I was going through at that moment. I was always upfront, but during that phase, everyone was doubting me. People judge you independently and not as a couple. They don’t understand that it was between two people. There must be a reason right? We got separated and the partner has moved on and I am doing good.”

She revealed an incident where she was questioned about it by a well-wisher. “One well-wisher of mine had even told me ‘I wish and pray’ and I was like that is not needed, I hope that wherever we are, we want to be in a good space and be positive. There was no point discussing something which happened a few years back. Let’s talk about the present, I told that person but yes, I did feel bad about it.”

What were the kind of judgements she faced? Rashami Desai shared her character, her intent, her behaviour in public were under scrutiny. “On my character, my behavior, I was getting trashed for whatever I was doing. There was nobody to take care of you. There used to be numbness in me. I was in depression and no one understood or took care of me. There was nobody to acknowledge my issue. My childhood was troubled, but thankfully my professional life was good. My personal life was messy but I realised that I am not answerable to anyone but me. The moment I realised things became easier.”

Rashami did not open up on said incident for a long time and believes that being silent was good for her. WATCH Full interview:
