Tinaa Datta Was In An Abusive Relationship For 5 Years

The Actress Wants To Settle Down & Doesn’t Want To Have Affairs!
The actress says that she now wants to settle down. She told the leading daily, "I want to settle down and not go about having affairs and then nursing heartbreaks."
Tinaa Doesn’t Want To Marry A Guy From The Industry
She further added, "I have always wanted a love marriage, but God is not sending anyone my way. I don't want to marry someone from the industry, especially an actor, as the relationship will be marred by insecurities. I have seen several failed marriages between actors."
‘I Tasted Success At A Very Young Age’
Regarding her shows and work, she said, "Uttaran' was a big show and Ichha (her character) became synonymous with me. I tasted success at a very young age, and so, I had to wait patiently. It can get tough, as actors have to take care of their EMIs and lifestyle. Fortunately, I had enough savings."
‘It’s Depressing When Things Don’t Work Out’
"The problem is that you become a workaholic when you have been shooting for five years at a stretch and suddenly, you are doing nothing. Initially, I enjoyed that phase, it felt like a much-deserved holiday. But after a point, it became frustrating. After a show ends, you start from scratch - giving auditions and waiting for a positive outcome. It's depressing when things don't work out, but you have to be really strong and positive at that time."
