Relationship with Digvijay Singh :

✺ In May 2014, she came into limelight due to her relationship with Congress General Secretary and the former chief minister of Madhya Pradesh, Digvijay Singh.

✺ At the time, she was married to Anand Pradhan, an Associate Professor of journalism at the Indian Institute of Mass Communication, New Delhi.

✺ Some of their intimate pictures were leaked online, which brought a lot of criticism to her and Digvijay Singh and also her ex-husband Anand Pradhan for supporting her on her decision to marry Digvijay Singh upon finalization of their divorce.

✺ Following this controversy, Digvijay Singh had publicly admitted his relationship with Amrita on his Twitter handle.

✺ Her Ex-husband Anand Pradhan raised his support towards her in his own words ‘For people who are not ready to view the finer details of man-woman relationship and also the woman’s existence and personality from any other mindset than the feudal and patriarchal one, for those who do not consider women anything more than private property or a baby-making machine, for those who do not respect the dignity of that gender, it is a chance to indulge in lurid jokes, personal attacks, and mudslinging. But this is all they know. This is the limit of their thinking and politics. I do not expect anything more than this from them.’

✺ In Amrita’s words ‘We live in a modern, progressive India, and the constitutional and legal framework has empowered me to decide about my life and my life’s choices’.

✺ Despite an age difference, she married Digvijay Singh in September 2015 and continued working with Rajya Sabha TV as a Senior Anchor.
