Geeta Basra Shares Her Hesitation About Getting Too Serious With Harbhajan Singh, “They’re Flamboyant, Have Girlfriends”
Actress Geeta Basra and Cricketer Harbhajan Singh tied the knot on October 29, 2015. The couple is proud parents of a cute daughter Hinaya Heer and now they are expecting their second child soon. In a recent interview, the actress revealed that she was a little sceptical about getting too serious with Harbhajan because of the rumors she had heard out him and other cricketers.
Geeta told Hindustan Times, “Those days were very different. Being linked to someone was a very big thing. I remember a very big actress who got married in those days had to leave a film because that movie’s producers were worried that she would soon become pregnant. On similar lines, I had got lots of offers after my debut film The Train but they never made headway.”
A few days ago, Geeta also opened up about why she never returned to showbiz after getting married to Harbhajan. She said, “I have grown up with a working mum, who has raised her family so well… Whatever we have today is because of her. I take that as my inspiration. I don’t women should give up on any of their passions. Being a mother is the most rewarding and fulfilling role I’ve ever had in my life. I’ve loved every moment being with Hinaya. It was a personal choice that I didn’t want to work… I was enjoying motherhood so much, and enjoying her milestones, and making sure that I’m there for every single moment of hers — her first walk, her first laugh, her first word.”
She added, “I enjoy what I used to do, and when the time comes, and when I’m ready, I will definitely head back to work.”
