Ekta spoke to timesofindia.com and said, “After marriage I had learnt about certain things I couldn’t do or be a part of and that used to bother me. Things had changed drastically. I always wanted to buy a piece of land or a property and go back there whenever I wanted to. But suddenly everything changed after marriage because I wasn’t a part of the state anymore. Now I am hopeful that things will change.”
