The "Jessica Jones" actor Sarita Choudhary is notoriously private about her personal life. To maintain privacy, she is also not available on any social media platform.
Because of Choudhury's secretive nature, her relationship status always remained a mystery. However, fans began to speculate about her love life when she gave birth to her daughter, Maria Choudhary.
When questions regarding the legitimacy of her child began, the "Madam Secretary" star opened about her romantic life. Sarita stated in an interview with DNA India that she is married with a war photographer.
When asked about the details of her husband, she was reluctant. However, after much quizzing, she added:
"He is not from the industry at all! He is a war photographer, and it is from him where my baby gets her blonde hair from."

“She is such an actress! I think she is more of the Bollywood type. All of her teachers tell me that she loves to perform.”
