Pooja Bedi and businessman Farhan Furniturewala’s daughter actress Alaya F, says that unlike other Indian parents, her parents have always advised her not to get married before 30.
Alaya said, “When you’re raised by single parents, they are inherently very independent, so they like to pass that on to their children. Both my parents, for that matter, have constantly said to me ‘You have to be financially independent’.”
She further added that in a country where parents usually put pressure on their kids for marriage, her parents are the complete opposite. “They’re like ‘Als, if you get married before you’re 30 you’re doing the stupidest thing you’ve done in your life. Focus on your career, focus on your work, focus on building yourself’. That’s been said to me all the time,” added Alaya.
Earlier, Alaya had spoken about her parents’ separation and said that she was 5 years old, when her parents got separated, and she does not remember much about it.
“I had memory of years after that. I had a happy childhood and both my parents are still on great terms. They never made me feel that something sad has happened. It was just a divorce and it’s okay,” added Alaya.
