Actress Barkha Bisht Sengupta Opens Up On Struggles Of Being A Single Mother
Barkha Bisht, who was last seen in Shaadi Mubarak, has been away from television for the past two years. The actress shared how she wants to do TV, but since she is now a single mother, she can’t devote the kind of time required to a TV show in a month.
In July 2021, Barkha and husband Indraneil Sengupta started living separately. Their eleven-year-old daughter Meira lives with her.
Barkha said, “I did two web shows in past one year; one of them is with Suniel Shetty and another is also coming up soon. I would love to do TV and I see that shows are relatable when it comes to women and their journey in life. Like, there is a new show which has Shweta Tiwari and Manav Gohil that’s coming up. I feel this is an interesting phase. I would love to do TV but in the last two years everyone knows it has not been an easy time for me personally. I am a single mother now and my daughter Meira needs me.”
She further added, “Meira is in her growing up years and these days education and technology has changed so many things that it is important to spend time with your child and focus on them. If they are alone, they tend to get on to their gadgets or phones and stop studying.”
She conlcuded, “Since I am a single parent now, it is not easy to spend 25 days away from Meira in a month. But, if there is something really interesting or worthwhile, I would love to do it. I am not someone who feels that web is great and TV isn’t. I am always grateful for the work I have got TV.”
