Expressed that polygamy is not legally recognised for Hindus in India, quoted by the Free Press Journal, the 28-year-old added, “This might lead to misunderstandings among viewers about the norms governing marriages in Hinduism. It could perpetuate stereotypes or misconceptions about Hindu practices and beliefs regarding marriage. And could potentially normalize or glamorize relationships that are not legally or socially accepted in the context of modern Hindu society.” ALSO READ: Bigg Boss OTT 3: Lovekesh Kataria’s Girlfriend Ashna Chand REACTS As Videos Of Him Being Unable To Sleep Due To Handcuffs Goes Viral

While Kritika recently welcomed her and Armaan’s first kid, Zaid, Payal welcomed twins Ayan and Tuba shortly after.
