Parents & Siblings
Saaniya Iyer’s mother, Deepa Iyer, is a Kannada television actress.
Her mother divorced her father when Saaniya was two years old. Later, Deepa Iyer got married to her friend; however, things didn’t turn out well with her second husband, so she decided to file a divorce with him. In an interview, Saaniya’s mother talked about this and said,
Sanya stayed in the Bigg Boss house last night. We were also shocked to see it. I got divorced when she was two years old. So she did not get her father’s love. Then I got married to one of my friends. That was my wrong decision. The relationship that was there when they were friends got ruined after marriage. Deepa Iyer said that it was enough for Sanya who wanted a father. When I decided to divorce the second husband, he was not ready to give up. Sometimes Sanya was uncomfortable with him. He was staying with us. Once when Sanya and her boyfriend were in a room, he came from the window of the neighbouring house and recorded it on his mobile phone. Deepa Iyer said that he has shown it to everyone.” TV9 Kannada
