What was meant to be a probing debate on marriage led to major spat as TV actress Urvashi Dholakia walked out of the sets of an Ekta Kapoor serial after flaring up over a comment by Whirlpool model Amrita Saluja.

Urvashi trooped out during the recordings for next week's episode of Sony's "Kandy Floss" when Amrita termed her (Amrita's) husband a "god".

Uvashi said later: "Nothing much happened. The topic we were discussing - marriage - was absolutely non-debatable. I've already spoken as much as I want to about it."

Amrita was far more forthcoming.

"My husband, sports manager Rahul Raichand, treats me like a princess. So why should I not show him the same love and respect? What was so wrong calling my husband 'god'? It may make the feminists cringe and it may not even be politically correct. But that's how I feel about my husband. Why should Urvashi take offence?"

Apparently, the sharp-tongued TV vamp Urvashi, best known for her catty act as Komalika in "Kasauti Zindagi Kay", objected vocally and accused Amrita of insulting the gods.

Amrita, who recently worked on Zee's thriller "Time Bomb", went on: "Please! I know my religion. I worship all the deities. And I've read the Bhagavad Gita. Perhaps Urvashi should do the same. It clearly states that there's a god within all of us."
