Once it's over, can you be friends with your ex-lover? Is it possible to be pally in a relation that's gone sour?
Women from the film industry, who have suffered break-ups in love-life, give their take on the subject...
Kamasutra girl Pooja Bedi, who has suffered a divorce in life, says, "In the initial years of break-up, it's advisable to remain away from your ex. But yes once you realize that he is no longer the only important thing in your life, it indicates that you have learnt to live life without him and you have moved on. After that, you can decide if you want to continue meeting him as part of social interactions." Pooja further says, "I meet my ex-husband now when my kids insist. I maintain a friendly relation with him."
Neha Dhupia agrees with Pooja. "It's difficult to forget someone who meant the whole world to you at some point of time. But if you are destined to separate, you can make your life easy by staying away from him. Though it's very tough but there is no other way out. Think positive about life and if you want to meethim again, do it when he becomes like any other man in your life."
Actress Amrita Singh, who confessed that at one point of time in life a slightest thinking of going away from Saif Ali Khan used to send shivers down her spine. "I have adjusted myself with time and now I have learnt the habit of living alone. I know it's very difficult but there is no alternative than forgetting you past and moving on," says Amrita.
