Asha Parekh reveals why she chose to live alone despite her love for director Nasir Hussain

Asha Parekh was a force to reckon with in the 1970s. With films like Kati Patang, Teesri Manzil, Dil Deke Dekho, Ghunghat, Chhaya and others to her credit, she reigned supreme the era of the classic cinema. Though she attracted a lot of attention from the men, she chose to remain single all these years -- despite being in love with one of her directors Nasir Hussain.

In a recent interview with Verve, she opened up on how she never understood the concept of marriage as she saw many of her fellow actors getting caught cheating by their wives -- who later forgave them.

Further, she revealed that she chose not to be a homewrecker and said, “As much as I loved him (Nasir Hussain), I could never consider breaking up his family and traumatising his children. It was far simpler and satisfying to be on my own.”

Parekh said that her friends were the ones who supported her through thick and thin. “My friends are why I’ve managed to hold on to my sanity and fight bouts of depression. Shammiji (Nargis Rabadi) was always with me before she passed away last year," she said.

She also revealed that she got a lot of male attention but chose to travel the world with her friends Waheeda Rehman and Helen -- instead of tying the knot.
