'There was no tension between us'
July 04, 2008 13:11 IST


Excerpts from People magazine, on Trishala talking about her father:

On not taking his calls after his marriage to Manyata:

"No, I was not ignoring his calls. I was busy... There were times when I was in class when dad called and then it would be too late for me to call him back in India. Dad got the wrong idea of why I wasn't taking his calls so he finally SMSed me and I called him back," she says.

On speaking to him the first time after his marriage to Manyata:

"I spoke to my father a few weeks after his marriage. When we spoke, it was like any other conversation -- completely normal. There was no tension between us."

On some of the things she and her dad talked about in the Bahamas:

"He is proud of me for choosing criminal psychology. I was updating him on the homicide and missing person cases that I have studied, and my meetings with some criminals."

On her relationship with Manyata:

"So far so good."

Principal Correspondent Sandipan Dalal, who reported on the reunion between Sanjay and Trishala, said, "The days preceding their meeting, Trishala was both nervous and happy. Nervous, because she hadn't met her dad for over one-and-a-half year. Joyous, because she was looking forward to spending some quality time with him. It is clear that it was a very emotional six days for both father and daughter. They connected with each other and the goings-on in each other's lives once again. As for Trishala and Manyata, it would be interesting to see how their relationship develops. While Trishala's only wish is to see her father happy, six days is too soon for anyone to say with conviction whether she and Manyata will go on to forge a meaningful relationship."

Manyata, it may be recalled, was said to be the reason for an estrangement between daughter and dad. Just before Sanjay's sudden marriage to Manyata, Trishala gave a series of well-publicised interviews stating that her father had given her to understand that she would be the only woman in his life.

Priced at Rs 30, the India edition of People will be available on the stands from July 4.
