Roop Durgapal, who rose to popularity as Sanchi on "Balika Vadhu" and Kavya on "Swaragini," has revealed to her fans that she has been married to Deepak N, who works as a creative director in a sports channel, for quite some time now.

Speaking to Indo-Asian News Service (IANS), Roop said that it is an arranged marriage and that she and her husband met a couple of times before they decided to get hitched.

When asked why she had kept her personal life under wraps, the actress said that she had always wanted her work to do the talking rather than her private life. In fact, she wanted to keep her private and professional life separate.

"That's the arrangement I am comfortable with. But certainly there is romance in my life as I am happily married and people close to me know about it. But I don't feel the need to shout about it from the rooftop as we both are very private people," she added.

Roop's wedding reports led to a lot of speculations regarding why she decided to talk about her marriage when she had always wanted to keep her personal life under wraps. To this, the actress, who is currently seen on "Kuch Rang Pyar Ke Aise Bhi," said that she decided to reveal it, mainly because of her fans, who always were curious to know if she was dating someone after being in the television industry for several years now.

"We both are very shy and like to keep our private lives separate from professional lives, so we never felt the need to disclose it earlier. However, since sometime, lots of people have been asking me, including the fans. So I feel this is the right time they should know about it," she told India Forums.
