Single Jhumka narrates the story which is other way round making it unique. She said, “I think yes because times are changing and the reality has changed. But more than that, I feel man cheating on a wife and the wife taking him back is still more common.”
She adds, “In this case, Single Jhumka, the woman cheating and the man is taking her back, or willing to have a conversation, and not be hurt, not coming from a deep-rooted male ego, ‘how could you do that to me’ kind of, this thing is more rare.”
Sayani in this film confesses cheating on her partner to her parents. Just like many others, he is heartbroken but makes an effort to understand the situation calmly. The actress feels more couples should have this maturity in their relationship. “For Adeeb Rais (director) to have written it the way that he did and put it so simply, because, the conversation that happens after what goes on in their lives is very interesting and it’s so real, it feels so normal, so uncomplicated and honest. I wish couples can have a conversation like that,” added Sayani.

However, Sayani feels she won’t be able to deal with it in the way shown in the movie if she ever faces infidelity in real life. Hence, expressed of being scared of marriage, keeping in mind, there are easily accessible options today. “Of course, it would be traumatic for some. It’s definitely not nice to be cheated on, no matter who you are. But it happens so much. I feel so scared honestly. It’s one of the reason I think I don’t want to get married because I’m like…what if? These days options are also more, everyone is more accessible,” said Sayani.
Not understanding the concept of open relationships, she hopes to get a husband as cool as her onscreen character in real life. Sayani said, “I don’t understand open relationships. I am only talking about how I feel. So I am very petrified and it’s one of the reasons why I’m like nahi bhai shadi toh nahi karni hai, kuch hogaya toh main nahi maaf kar paugi (I do not want to get married. I wouldn’t be able to forgive if something happens). I don’t know how I would react but I wish I could be as cool as Ashima’s husband is.” ALSO READ: Four More Shots Please Season 3 Shoot To Begin Soon; Kirti Kulhari Gives A Teaser Of Their Madness Feat Sayani Gupta, Maanvi Gagroo And Bani J
