Remember the meek and docile Iccha from Colors’ hit show Uttaran? TV actress Tinaa Dattaa played the character on-screen and won a lot of hearts. But if you thought that she is like her character in real life, you’re mistaken. She is fierce, bold and now the protagonist of another hit show Daayan. But there was a point in her life but nothing seemed right, including her personal life that was crippling under the weight of a failed and abusive relationship.
In an interview with Times of India, the actress opened about her wounds and how she put a strong face after getting beaten for five long years. Seemingly, she remained quiet because she cared for the guy and wanted the relationship to work at any cost. She said, “I was in a relationship with a non-industry guy for five years. We had met through common friends. But I called time on it, because he was extremely abusive, verbally and physically. I would get bashed up even in front of my friends. I went bonkers to an extent that my confidence took a beating. I never wanted to go public with my relationship, but I feel that it’s time to speak up.”
