"Especially for the kind of workaholic that I am.”
Tejasswi Prakash believes the idea of dependency on financial advice is “stupid”.
The Bigg Boss 15 winner stated that it is important for women to be independent enough so that they can make the necessary decisions in life, whenever needed.
When told that women often rely on their fathers, husbands and brothers for financial advice, Tejasswi responded:
“I think that’s just stupid. I am big on investments. I am a trader, and I trade mostly equity. Sometimes in options and futures.
“I feel like it doesn’t just involve guesswork but it involves a lot of studies. So, I have studied. I have had a course.
“I am aware of the fact that you cannot completely rely on an industry like mine. Especially for the kind of workaholic that I am.”
Tejasswi said she does not want to stress about money if there is no work for her.
“You, as a person, should very well have an understanding of yourself. Are you the kind of person who can stay at home, peacefully, happily without working?
“If you know you are not that person, then you are going to go crazy when you don’t have work because you can’t decide that you will always have work.
“Even when I am not working, I still have an income while I am just sitting at home.”
In 2022, Tejasswi Prakash bought a new home in Goa. This led to speculation that she and her boyfriend Karan Kundrra were set to move in together into a place he purchased.
Reports later suggested it was jointly purchased.
This prompted Karan to clarify that it was Tejasswi’s property.
Tejasswi stated that she wants to work even when there’s newer talent around although she would also like to have a family and give more time there, and not take up something taxing then.
“I think a girl should be independent enough.”
“Tomorrow, never call somebody else for financial help and if ever she decides to leave she should not go back to a dependent house but to her own place.
“I want to go to a place which is mine.
“As a woman, as a mother, as a wife, as a sister you should have an independent place because then you gain self-respect that if tomorrow you cannot tolerate something, you can take your people and leave the situation.”
Since winning Bigg Boss 15, Tejasswi Prakash has gone on to star in Naagin 6.
