Nandita Das was earlier married to Saumya Sen from 2002 to 2007. After dating Mumbai-based industrialist Subodh, she married him in January 2010 and the couple welcomed their first child, a son, who was named Vihaan, in the same year. "For us, our son is our main concern and we are committed to ensuring his well-being, and I hope that our privacy will be respected at this time," she told PTI
