Dalljiet Kaur and Shaleen Bhanot filed for divorce last year in July after staying separately for a year. Stating the reason for their separation as domestic violence, Dalljiet had accused Shaleen of trying to strangle her and harassing her for dowry; claims that were refuted by her ex-husband. The divorce came through recently.

Talking about the struggle and trauma that she went through during the last two years, Dalljiet says she has emerged as a stronger and more confident woman. “Life could not be better,” says the TV actor, adding, “I am happier and stronger now. My son, Jaydon is happy and healthy. When he smiles once, I smile ten times.”

While this new lease of life has comes as a complete makeover for the actor, Dalljiet has lost 25kg and says she has never felt so fitter before. “This is one of the biggest highs of my life. I realised that I need to start losing weight in a drastic way. I was sitting at home and sulking one day while looking in the mirror. I was like, ‘Who the hell is this? The old fat Dalljiet.’ I started working out right after and two years later, I am thinner than ever before. I am healthier and the best part is that I can pick up my son and walk,” she shares.

With her show Kaala Teeka nearing its end, Dalljiet is looking forward to do happier roles. “I was fatter, depressed and struggling back then. Now I’m a changed person and I am looking for happier roles. Till the time I get something, I am enjoying my time with my son,” she says.
