Samiksha Jug, who plays the young and sweet Muslim girl in the Sahara One serial 'Zaara' is one of those rare lucky ones who actually get the chance to get married to their sweetheart love. unlike the serial 'Zaara' where her marital life is in bad waters all the time, recently, Samiksha tied the knots with the guy she refuses to name. "Yes, I am married to my childhood friend. We tied the knot a few months ago. We were friends since childhood and my parents asked me to marry him. Since this is the right time in my life, I too agreed," said the beauty from Chandigarh. Unwilling to name her better half, Samiksha says that he does not belong to the industry.
But does she think that the lead actress's marital status can make any difference to the shows? "No, this does not affect actresses in television serials. But it maybe true for movies. In movies, the actress becomes a dream girl of the people and when it is known she is married, she loses her popularity", she says. Samiksha who had also previously acted in South Indian movies however, feels that such an audience attitude is not healthy.
