Tina Datta, who shot to fame with one of the longest running shows on Colors’ “Uttaran” has recently opened up about her relationship status.
She recently spoke her heart out about her 5-year long relationship that almost ruined her.
While talking to Bombay Times, she said, “I was in a relationship with a non-industry guy for five years. We had met through common friends. But I called time on it, because he was extremely abusive, verbally and physically”.

She added that it became difficult for her to face the world and people around while she was in the relationship. Tina feels she’s in a better space to share details of the past now. She said, “I would get bashed up even in front of my friends. I went bonkers to an extent that my confidence took a beating. I never wanted to go public with my relationship, but I feel that it’s time to speak up”.
The actress told that she now wants to settle down and stated, “I want to settle down and not go about having affairs and then nursing heartbreaks. I have always wanted a love marriage, but God is not sending anyone my way. I don’t want to marry someone from the industry, especially an actor, as the relationship will be marred by insecurities. I have seen several failed marriages between actors.”
Tina also talked about the kind of work she is waiting for, she stated, “Uttaran’ was a big show and Ichha (her character) became synonymous with me. I tasted success at a very young age, and so, I had to wait patiently. It can get tough, as actors have to take care of their EMIs and lifestyle. Fortunately, I had enough savings. The problem is that you become a workaholic when you have been shooting for five years at a stretch and suddenly, you are doing nothing. Initially, I enjoyed that phase, it felt like a much-deserved holiday. But after a point, it became frustrating. After a show ends, you start from scratch — giving auditions and waiting for a positive outcome. It’s depressing when things don’t work out, but you have to be really strong and positive at that time.”
On the work front, the actress is all set to appear in Ekta Kapoor’s show Daayan.
