Kamya Punjabi married Bunty Negi in 2003 and two years later, the marriage ran into rough weather, following reports of her getting involved with a married man, Nirmal Bali, the cousin of actor Sanjay Dutt. Kamya confirmed the affair but said that she was not cheating on her husband. In 2006, she said, "Bunty has gone to town stating that I was having an affair Nimai before we parted ways. That is a lie. Bunty and I parted ways in August, while Nimai and I got together only in October. I have been covering up Bunty's aggressive and over-possessive behaviour, but I am now admitting that he used to physically abuse me often. He would even come to the sets, tear my clothes and take me home forcibly. He didn't want me to work in this industry."
Kamya said that she had no problems falling for a married man. She answered, "I am no longer afraid to admit that I love Nimai and he feels the same for me. So what if he is married? So what if he has a five-year-old daughter? You can't help who you fall in love with. It could be a married man or an older man; you can't decide who you will fall in love with. We were going to start living together from Tuesday and my parents have no reservations about him. They are happy with my decision”
However, that was not to be Kamya’s decision because Kamya got together with her husband and they cancelled the idea of divorce. They had a baby girl in October 2009. Recently, there has been news about Kamya Punjabi’s marriage being in trouble, but both the husband and the wife have refuted the news and said that their marriage is stable as ever.
