Despite the recent flops, Vadsaria maintains a loyal fan base who are always interested in knowing about her comings and goings. One topic that has been of particular interest to her fans is her marital status, romantic affairs and details about her background.
Dilshad Vadsaria Married, Husband
Dilshad is one of those very secretive celebrities who prefer to keep mum when it comes to whom they are getting the hots for. In 2008, she was romantically linked to her Greek costar Jake McDorman, however, the rumors didn’t linger for too long as talks of the two being a couple disappeared a year later.
In a 2016 interview with Glamour about her role in Second Chance, Dilshad was asked if she had ever given a guy a second chance and it worked out. She said;
“Yes and no. [Laughs] You know when you date someone who is super bad for you, and everyone sees it but yourself? And you feel like if you can’t be with this person, your life is over? That was me. I should have cut it off so long before I actually did, but it just dragged on and on and on. It just should have been like, “Ciao, bye!” That’s one thing I would change.”
As of 2017, it isn’t clear whom Dilshad is dating. It is, however, clear that she is unmarried.

Today is #WorldElephantDay. I absolutely love elephants. This picture is taken during my trip to #Botswana, with my amazing guide Harrison, as a family of elephants bathes in the background. If you watch these majestic animals in their natural habitat you’ll see how much we can relate to these familial beings. It’s senseless to know 4 elephants die every hour for their ivory. If we collectively stop buying we will kill the trade. Can’t imagine a world without elephants. Can you? 🐘❤️
A century ago there were 100,000 tigers in the world. Today only 3,200. This story by @natgeo talks about tiger poaching by the monks at Thailand’s famed Tiger Temple. http://goo.gl/ZeRkXm #repost ・・・ @natgeo Check out this new story by Sharon Guynup and video by @stevewinterphoto about tiger trafficking from a Buddhist monastery in Thailand: http://news.nationalgeographic.com/2016/01/160121-tiger-temple-thailand-trafficking-laos0/ Tigers at Thailand’s famed Tiger Temple live in cramped concrete enclosures. A new report links the monastery, which houses 147 tigers, to the black market tiger trade. @sharonguynup The Department of National Parks which legally “owns” the tigers in the temple will begin to move them out within the week to a Thai Govt. facility of the Thai National Parks Department. Tigers are the largest of the big cats. They deserve to live free in the forest. Our animal family is so much like us – they find mates, they have kids, they have to feed themselves and their families. If we can find a way to believe that they think, feel and have emotions, we can treat them better and find a way to ensure their future on this planet. They are keystone species in their ecosystems, though we as humans are not. Remember just as an example of the importance of their homes – the forests. 50% of our oxygen comes from forest – the other 50% from the oceans. 75% of fresh water comes from forests. So we save their homes – we help save ourselves. National Geographic launched the Big Cats Initiative to raise awareness and implement change to the dire situation facing big cats.
