Actress Surveen Chawla, who surprised everyone by revealing that she had been married for two years, says she did what she did to shatter stereotypes. She believes that marital status of a woman can never affect her beauty and professionalism.

The actress, who will soon to be seen in the upcoming web series Haq Se, was on Wednesday at the trailer launch of the show in Mumbai along with the star cast and producer Ekta Kapoor.

Asked what made her keep the marriage a secret, Chawla replied, “Well, I wanted to break the myth and I wanted to take time to be prepared about saying it. Being a part of this [entertainment] industry, we are conditioned in a certain way. Now you guys tell me, in two years when you people have seen me, have you find any difference?”

“I strongly believe that being married has nothing to do with my profession. It does not make me less beautiful, less charming or sexy. Being married does not make me a less artiste or a professional. I am an entertainer; I will entertain you, irrespective of my marital status. That [is what] should matter,” she added.

Director Ken Ghosh, actor Rajeev Khandelwal, Rukhsar, Simon Singh, Pavail Gulati, Aanchal Sharma among others were also present on the occasion.
