Deepti captured the hearts of audiences across the globe when she turned down her fiancé at the altar—a man who, unbeknownst to Deepti, repeatedly belittled her and criticized her appearance on-screen.
Millions watched as Deepti uttered the now-famous words that became a rallying cry for women everywhere: “I’m choosing myself.” In this exclusive, tell-all book, Deepti pulls back the curtain onthe world of Love is Blind sharing never-before-heard details on: her relationships inside and outside of the pods and what really happened after After the Altar.
