ACTRESS Fasha Sandha feels at ease living the single life as she is able to enjoy more freedom and receive more job offers, reported Kosmo!.
“Honestly, I feel comfortable being single because it’s easier for people to work with me, and I’m able to focus on my two children.
“I’m not saying I was in a bind when I was married, but as a wife, there were definitely more obstacles in getting job offers,” she said.
Of late, the 34-year-old single mother has been romantically linked with actor Aidil Aziz after a video surfaced of the two hugging to each other at an airport.
Despite Fasha, who has been single since 2016, stating that she and Aidil are merely close friends, the two have reportedly met each other’s families.
