The actress was asked if she sees her past marriage as a mistake or regret ever taking such a decision.

According to her, she was young and naive at that time and the person she got married to was wrong for her.

"No, I don’t see it as a mistake. I was just young and naive. I met the wrong person at the right time. The person was wrong for me, so what I did was to dust the dirt off my body and move on," she said.

In 2009, Chinda was the talk of the town after her marriage to Dejo Richards hit the brick wall.
