Ac­tor Dalljiet Kaur (left), who is go­ing through a di­vorce case with es­tranged hus­band — ac­tor Shaleen Bhanot (inset), says things are far from be­ing easy for her.

“It’s a very tough bat­tle for me right now, as I’m tak­ing care of my fi­nances on my own. Had I been alone, it might have been eas­ier for me to fight the case. But with my baby to take care of too, the progress has been slow,” says Dalljiet, who has a two-yearold son with Shaleen.

Dalljiet, 32, and Shaleen met on sets of the show Kul­vadhu in 2006 and got mar­ried in 2009. How­ever, Dalljiet re­vealed ear­lier this year that she was fac­ing do­mes­tic vi­o­lence. She said she did not speak up ear­lier be­cause of her child. “I feel that I have strength be­cause I am stand­ing up for some­thing. I know I have to win this strug­gle be­cause of my baby,” she says.

The tur­moil in Dalljiet’s mar­riage has made her fol­low numerol­ogy and change the spell­ing of her name. “When things went up­side down, I thought of try­ing it,” she says.
