Bobby has played an array of gay roles in Bollywood from Taal, Page 3,Chalte Chalte to Hasee Toh Phasee
Bobby Darling, who has appeared in the Limca Book of Records for playing 18 roles as a gay man, will not be seen playing transgender roles anymore. On February 11th this year, Bobby got married to her longtime boyfriend, businessman Ramneek Sharma. Before getting married, Bobby got a sex change operation done and now goes by the name Pakhi Sharma (her Insta bio confirms the new name.)
In a recent interview to Times of India, Bobby (Pakhi) opened up about the operation. She said, "I underwent the surgery before marriage at the insistence of my husband. I got a certificate from my surgeon. It was a painful process and Ramnik stood by me like a rock."
Bobby, who is now raring to get back to work, is definite about not doing transgender roles in future. She says, "I have transformed into a woman completely, so why should I play something that I am not? I now wish to play a heroine or bhabhi and don't mind participating in reality shows."
Ramneek (28) is fifteen years younger than Bobby (43), and their wedding was held in Bhopal with the consent of both their families. She spoke in detail about how marriage has brought in beautiful changes in her life. She added, "My life changed drastically in the past few months. I got to know about Ramnik on a social networking website and we exchanged numbers. One thing led to another and here we are as spouses. I didn't talk about my marriage as my husband was not comfortable with the idea of being in the media glare. After a few heartbreaks, I took a gamble with Ramnik. He happened to be the first guy in my life to ask me for marriage in the beginning itself. He is honest and family-oriented. I am very happy with my decision.”
The couple recently visited Singapore for their honeymoon. Bobby is definitely in a sound space right now and we are super happy for her. We wish she gets to do the kind of roles she desires to!
