Being honest is expensive and painful: Somya
8 years ago when I took up Navya I was 21 years old girl... wanted the world to believe in love !!! Wanted to heal the world with love !! I believed everyone deserves love and to be loved. I was in my own country. I lived with my parents who protected me from everything evil. I have grown up - I have seen violence, I have seen illicit drugs (including coccaine), I have seen hate, I have seen jealously, I have seen injustice, emotional manipulation’s and physical abuse! I have seen Beautiful Faces with ugly hearts. People who look well but are sick in heart and mind. 8 years after doing Navya I believe- Prince Charming is the most trashy concept as of today!! Girls just need to listen to their own hearts and believe that they are a women with substance and their happiness should not depend on any guy. Today I can tell being honest is expensive and worthless and painful and stupid. All that being said Navya was a beautiful dream and I am grateful that I got a chance to live it for few days!! Some of the Most memorable days of my life !! Grateful forever!! Amm ladki ki Khaas Kahaani!!

In 2017 itself, the couple welcomed their first child, Ayden.
While everything seemed 'oh-so-perfect' between Somya and Arun, things soon turned sour between them in 2018, and their marriage hit a rocky path.
